I quite often get replies to my DIGs and it is good to sometimes build on these replies.
Yesterday a brother read the DIG and replied, “I also like Psalm 56 v 4”, so I had a look at this verse and it adds an extra dimension to what I wrote yesterday.
At the same time as we trust God we must not fear men (Psalm 56 v 4).
We are living in a troubled world, a world where evil men are continually doing vile and wicked things to innocent people.
This is truly a time when we should be putting our trust in God.
It is also a time however when we should not fear what men can do to us.
You may be thinking that this is not so easy to do, especially with what we see on the internet, on our tv screens and what we read in the newspapers.
However if you value his Word and praise His Word, and at the same time take a view of our life in eternal terms, we can put Psalm 56 v 4 ‘into operation’.
Fear can incapacitate us, fear can stop us doing what we want to do, and this is exactly what the evil men want.
We can trust our God if we understand His love, mercy and compassion for us.
An understanding of His Word will lead us into trust.
Remember that perfect love casts out all fear (1 John 4 v 18).
So, what is my advice to you in these troubled times?
Get into His Word, learn how much He loves you and trust Him, and of course carry on with your life as if these evil me do not exist!
Speak this out…..”Thank you Lord for your Word and your love, and thank you that we can trust in you”.
Psalm 56 v 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
