Psalm 56:3-In the day when I am afraid, I will trust in You.
The Psalmist in this text is not declaring that he is never faced with the opportunity to fear, but when fear tries to attach itself to Him, He will not be afraid, but instead, He will trust God.
David had many opportunities in his life to fear. I will name a couple of them. (1) When faced with a bear as he tended his father's sheep, he chose courage and killed it. In the face of torment, David faced the giant Goliath and defeated him too.
Each time David faced the giant called “fear”, he chose faith in God and obtained the victory over each situation.
We are living in a time where "fear" has grasp the hearts and minds of many people for it is everywhere. It is in every community, every workplace, every home, every neighborhood, every family, every major decision, every church, every affairs of life, etc.
Fear! What is it? A painful emotion or passion excited by an expectation of evil, or the apprehension of impending danger. To afright; to terrify.
When David says that he will trust in God when fear appears, he is simply saying that when the opportunity to be afraid comes his way, He will find confidence, hope, trust and help in knowing who God is and what He is able to do on his behalf.
Faith! What is it? Hebrews 11:1 give us a clear definition of it. Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
1 John 4:18a There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.
People of God, let today be the day that we all turn our fears into freedom by speaking the Word of God over every situation or circumstances that tries to paint fear as the picture we are suppose to view from instead of faith in the scriptures.
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you.
