Psalms Sunday-Psalm 56

Psalm 56

1Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.
2Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.
3What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
4In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
5Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.
6They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.
7Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.
8Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?
9When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.
10In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.
11In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
12Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.
13For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
Have mercy on me Lord because every day there seems to be something new to deal with-some new drama, some new accusation of how holy, or unholy, my life is(vs 1). Why is someone always twisting my words(vs 5)? It's like they are just waiting for me to do or say something wrong (vs 6) Lord I know that if it wasn't for you, my enemies would certainly get the best of me(vs 2) and I must admit that sometimes they even bring me to tears (vs 8). But, I don't have to fight back. All I have to do is praise Your name!! And that is not hard because you are definitely worthy of the praise! (vs 10). Lord you have promised that you will never leave or forsake me. So many times I should have been dead and you have delivered me, I know that you will keep me from falling so that I may be able to walk and be a light in this dark world.
