Psalm 56.3-4, 10-11 – February 21, 2020

Psalm 56.3-4, 10-11

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
4 In God, whose word I praise—
in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me? 

10 In God, whose word I praise,
in the Lord, whose word I praise—
11 in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can man do to me?

(Psalm 56:3-4, 10-11, NIV)

“When we are afraid – mortal man cannot hurt us…”

Thought Questions:

What things make you afraid?

What sort of things do you typically do to alleviate the fears you have? Where would you say you usually put your trust? God? Your own power? The strength of others? What else?

How does the psalmist’s statement that man can do nothing to you reassure you?
