The writer of Psalm 56 was being attacked by his enemies. In these verses, he asks God to help him and show him mercy. Throughout the psalm, the writer talks about two important things: trust and praise.
Verse 4 says, “I trust God, so I am not afraid of what people can do to me! I praise God for his promise to me.” Then in verses 10 and 11, the writer says, “I praise God for his promise. I praise the Lord for his promise to me. I trust God, so I am not afraid of what people can do to me!”
Trusting and praising God go together. When we trust God, He will never fail us. He always knows what is best for us. God will always help and guide us. Then, when we see that God has helped us, we will want to praise Him!
Be sure to trust God today. And when you see Him working in you life, stop and praise Him for His goodness.
