In God I Trust

Psalm 56.3-4
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?

How do you normally respond to fear? Perhaps you find yourself responding in different ways at different times. Maybe you’re ready to fight or just run away. Perhaps you are paralyzed with fear or panic. Notice David’s response to fear—faith. In verse 3 he has the courage to tell God—I trust in you. In verse 4 he has the confidence to tell himself and us—in God I trust. We know God because He has revealed Himself to us in His Word. We trust in God and in his promises. Even though enemies surround us, nothing overcomes God, so we should put our trust in God. Trust involves relying on God and finding security in God. Knowing God causes David to praise Him. Even when we do not understand our circumstances, we can trust God.
In the Preaching article “Don Moen Faces Tragedy” Greg Asimakoupoulos shares the following: Don Moen’s praise song “God Will Make a Way” affirms God’s sovereign involvement in our lives. Here’s how that song was written: Several years ago, Moen was awakened in the middle of the night. His mother-in-law called to tell him of a car accident involving his wife’s sister, Susan. Susan and her husband, Craig, and their four little boys were on a trip when the accident happened. Jeremy, age eight and the oldest of the four boys, was killed instantly. The others were seriously injured. 
As Don and his wife grieved and poured out their hearts to the Lord, they felt helpless at communicating hope and grace to Susan and Craig. Don says God helped him through the tragedy by giving him these words:
God will make a way when there seems to be no way.
He works in ways we cannot see. He will make a way for me.
He will be my guide; hold me closely to his side.
With love and strength for each new day, he will make a way.
