In Psalm 56, David moves from being trampled to walking before God. Captured by the Philistines, David cries out for God to save him, and repeats as a refrain that the God who will save Him is the God whose Word David praises. David knows God through His Word, and so David puts his trust in God in times of fear. God bottles up all David’s tears, and carefully records every wrong done to him, and He will turn back David’s enemies. By the end of the Psalm, David is already making plans for the thank offerings he will give before the deliverance is even begun! So imitate David, and whatever trials you face this morning, praise God for His Word, and walk in the light of God’s grace.
