In God, Whose Word I Praise

November 7, 2016



In God Whose Word I Praise

Since the beginning  of time  God’s children  have been totally overwhelmed  with all sorts  of problems.     It was always way over  what any human being  could handle.     We don’t have the ability  or power  to handle any  of the horrible onslaughts  of evil  in this world.

Trying to do something  by our own puny power  is useless  and self-defeating.     There is no way  a person  can defeat all  of the evils  in this world.     But,  God can and will.     That is why,  when David was captured  by the Philistines in Gath,  he put his whole faith  in God  and later wrote Psalm 56.     In verses 3-7,  he wrote,

In God,  whose word  I praise,
In God  I have put  my trust;
I shall not  be afraid.
What can mere man do  to me?  

All day long  they distort  my words;
All their thoughts  are against me  for evil. 

They attack,  they lurk,
They watch my steps,
As they have waited  to take my life. 

Because  of wickedness,  cast them forth,
In anger  put down the peoples,  O God!

We also  need to totally “trust”  in God.     David was not afraid  of “mere man”  in this world,   because  they might be able  to kill his body,  but they could never harm  his soul,  which is in  God’s care.     The unbelievers  were able  to “distort”  David’s words,  and always think “evil” against him.    They watched to “attack”  and take his “life”.

David realized  that he was not able  to defeat all this  by himself.     So, David turned  to God  in praise  and sang  in verses 10-11,

In God,  whose word  I praise,
In the LORD,  whose word  I praise,
In God  I have put my trust,
I shall not be afraid.
What can man do  to me?

We should not lose our faith  in God  and imagine  that we must take care  of all this world’s problems  by ourselves.     God wants us  to learn  to trust Him  and praise Him.

Trusting,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  all things  are in Your control.     Secure our faith.”



A Christian devotional  to glorify  the LORD of lords  and GOD of gods.

Pray for our country.
