Psalm 56:4 In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust, I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?

Such easy words to read quickly, but not so easy to fall back on in the heat of the battle. Its not that hard to trust God implicitly when things are going well, when mornings begin with song and laughter is the rule of the day. Bank accounts are adequate, pension plans are secure, and the profit margin far exceeds any small blip of red from the loss margin. He wants us to trust Him when the world is caving in around us and when any dream we had for our lives is but as sand sliding through our fingers. Do we love Him enough to trust Him with our very lives when all we see is darkness around us as we tentatively tap our feet for our next step? Can we rely on Him to do what is best for us even though it seems wrong to our human reasoning and everything in us screams to do the opposite? Its then that He wants to know He has our allegiance. Its at that moment that words and actions of praise reach to the heart of God because it has cost us every shred of self-reliance and intuition to believe that He who is God, will remain God despite everything that is happening around us. He is unchangeable, immutable and eternal. That He loved us enough to pursue a relationship with us despite of everything we are should bring us to our knees! If He never did another thing for us during our earthly span of days, that one act of love on Calvary is enough for us to praise Him the rest of our lives.
