Message of the Day: An Increased Dependence on God

In God (I will praise His word),
In God I have put my trust;
I will not fear.
What can flesh do to me
?” (Psalm 56:4, NKJV)

Psalm 56:1-57:11 belong to the time when David fled to from Saul, first to the city of Gath, then to the cave of Adullam. David is in great distress in Gath, as he learns that certain people in the city are planning to kill him. The increased danger he faces drives him to an increased dependence on God.

We would always find in God that which was ground or basis for praise and dependence on him; and that which called for special praise in meditating on the divine character – He is an infinite Spirit, almighty and eternal.
