I Will Put My Trust In Thee!!!

thursday psalm 56 3

Have A Wonderful and Blessed Day!!! I Will Put My Trust In Thee!!!

Psalm 56:1 Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.
Psalm 56:2 Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.
Psalm 56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
Psalm 56:4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
Psalm 56:5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.
Psalm 56:6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.
Psalm 56:7 Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.
Psalm 56:8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?
Psalm 56:9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.
Psalm 56:10 In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.
Psalm 56:11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
Psalm 56:12 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.
Psalm 56:13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

This psalm was written by David when the Philistines overwhelmed him in Gath. Verses 1-7 indicate that David was overwhelmed! His enemies were many. They oppressed him every day to the point that he felt like they would swallow him up!
He wrestled with the fear and failure of being God’s man. We want to do right, but often times we decide on wrong instead. Then when we pick right, wrong is all around us.
We will look at the following verses:
Psalm 56:8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?

Thou tellest my wanderings: (God is all knowing!)
put thou my tears into thy bottle: (God cares and is concerned about me!)
are they not in thy book? (God keeps records of my heartaches!)
Psalm 56:9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.

When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: (God fights my battles!)
this I know; for God is for me. (God is for me: He’s on my side!)
Psalm 56:10 In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.

In God will I praise his word: (Through the Creator I will praise His word!)
in the Lord will I praise his word. (In the Master I praise His word!)
Psalm 56:11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.

In God have I put my trust: (I’m counting on God for everything!)
I will not be afraid what man can do unto me. (I’m not afraid of life or its circumstances!)
Psalm 56:12 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.

Thy vows are upon me, O God: (I’m committed to the Lord!)
I will render praises unto thee. (I worship the Lord through praise!)
Psalm 56:13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

For thou hast delivered my soul from death: (God has saved my soul from Hell!)
wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, (God will keep me from failure if I ask Him!)
that I may walk before God in the light of the living. (Let the world see me walk with God!)

1. God’s Tender Attributes Toward Each One Of Us!!!
• He is omniscient: He knows everything about me and amazingly, He still loves me!
• He cares about me so much that He puts my tears in a bottle! He counts them and keeps up with them!
• He makes a record of my disappointments and heartaches! They don’t take Him by surprise! He knows and cares and keeps up with what is happening in my life! Imagine that!
• He fights my battles! When I call on Him, when I am overwhelmed by the circumstances, frustrations, and failures in life; God goes to war on my behalf!
• He is on my side! He is on the side of the righteous. He is on the side of His children. He is on the side of what is good and right. Watch out enemies of God! He is on my side and against you! You do not want to be on the wrong side when retribution comes! Get on the right side and God will be on your side too! Don’t you want the living, moving, loving, all-powerful God on your side?

2. David’s Thoughtful Affirmations Toward God – (vs. 10-13)
• I will praise His Word! David said: His Word. That’s right, His Word! It’s the greatest source for life and liberty in this old world. It’s not only the greatest, it the only complete source. It’s my guide for faith and practice. It’s the lamp unto my feet and the light unto my path. It’s inspired, inerrant, infallible and able to make one wise unto salvation! It makes the man of God throughly furnished unto all good works. It is a rock upon which to stand. (I could go all day, but you get the point.) Praise Him for His Word!
• I will trust God completely and without reservation! Yes, in God have I put my trust! It doesn’t matter what happens in this world – and Brothers and Sisters it’s happening! We can’t always trust others, which is sad. However We can ALWAYS TRUST OUR FATHER, OUR PRECIOUS LORD.
• I will remain firm and unafraid of life’s circumstances! What can anyone or anything do to me without first going through Him? (Isn’t this this the lesson from the book of Job?)If you take on God and He allows you to get to me, well so be it! If He allows you to get to me it was because He has a purpose through that trial in forging me into the image and likeness of His Son! So, help yourself!
• I will worship and sing praise to Him! It might not be politically correct to call on His name in public, but I am not a politically correct kind of person! I’m a born-again, blood bought, ransomed paid, believer in Jesus Christ! I’ve been delivered from sin’s penalty! I am being delivered from sin’s power, and praise God; am soon to be delivered from sin’s presence! So, you can’t stop me from singing praise to Him!
God bless you and encourage you today in your walk with Him and ministry to Him.
We can always trust HIM!!!

 

‘TIS SO SWEET TO TRUST IN JESUS
’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
And to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus says the Lord!”
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!
O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!
Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!
I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!

 

Love and Prayers
