In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do to me.
– Psalm 56:11
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
This poem, written by David when he was caught by Philistines, showed his great faith in God. David had killed many Philistines and established glorious achievements in war before he was caught. Needless to say, the Philistines hated David’s guts. Therefore, when David fell into the hands of the Philistines, he was somewhat afraid. But from this poem, we can see that David still clung to his faith in God and trusted God wholeheartedly without the slightest complaint. His such behavior should be followed by Christians nowadays. Just as God’s words say, “No matter how God works or what kind of environment you are in, you will be able to pursue life, pursue the development of God’s work in you, and pursue the truth. You will have an understanding of God’s actions and you will be able to act according to the truth. This is your genuine faith, and this shows that you have not lost hope in God. You will still seek the truth in refinement, you will be able to truly love God and will not develop doubts of Him. No matter what He does, you will still practice the truth to satisfy Him, and you will be able to deeply seek out His will and be considerate of His will. Only this is true faith in God.”
