Click here for today's reading

3 When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. 4 In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?
10 In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise, 11 in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me?

9 I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations. 10 For your steadfast love is great to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. 11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth!

  1. Psalm 56
    3-4 When struck by fear, I let go, depending securely upon You alone. In God—whose word I praise—in God I place my trust. I shall not let fear come in, for what can measly men do to me?

    8 You have taken note of my journey through life, caught each of my tears in Your bottle. But God, are they not also blots on Your book?

    9-13 Then my enemies shall turn back and scatter on the day I call out to You. This I know for certain: God is on my side. In God whose word I praise and in the Eternal whose word I praise—
    In God I have placed my trust. I shall not let fear come in, for what can measly men do to me? I am bound by Your promise, O God.
    My life is my offering of thanksgiving to You,
    For You have saved my soul from the darkness of death, steadied my feet from stumbling
    So I might continue to walk before God, embraced in the light of the living.

    Psalm 57
    1 Mercy. May Your mercy come to me, O God,
    for my soul is safe within You, the guardian of my life.
    I will seek protection in the shade of Your wings
    until the destruction has passed.
    2 I cry out to God, the Most High,
    to God who always does what is good for me.
    3 Out of heaven my rescue comes.
    He dispatches His mercy and truth
    And goes after whoever tries to run over me.

    7 My heart is ready, O God;
    my heart is ready,
    And I will sing!
    Yes, I will sing praise!
    8 Wake up, my glory!
    Wake up, harp and lyre;
    I will stir the sleepy dawn with praise!
    9 I will offer You my thanks, O Lord, before the nations of the world;
    I will sing of Your greatness no matter where I am.
    10 For Your amazing mercy ascends far into the heavens;
    Your truth rises above the clouds.
    11 O God, be lifted up above the heavens;
    may Your glory cover the earth.
