Application of the Fighter Verse for February 12/13

Set 1 – Psalm 56:3-4 – When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?

Trust in the Lord.  I use this verse with my children all the time.  They know it well and it is our favorite middle of the night verse.  In God I trust.  Why should one be afraid if the Lord is with you?

There is pain at the hands of those who are in the world and would do us harm.  Yet, God is greater than those who are in the world and, most notably, the devil.  There is nothing flesh can do to you to harm your eternal joy with God.  Do not fear the one who can harm your body, but rather the one who has authority over your soul. (See Matthew 10:26-33)

Where do you run when you are afraid?

Practical suggestions this week:

– Meditate upon this verse and God’s faithfulness.  Consider that God is over and in control of all the things in your life that may harm you.  God is good.  Put your trust in Him

–  Consider where your heart goes when you are afraid.  Keep this verse at hand and sing through it whenever you feel fear.  The melody was thoughtfully created to help you rest in the lord with this verse.  When you awaken in the middle of the night to a strange sound, when you fear the icy road conditions, call upon the Lord.  My children learn this song easily, “I like that one dad!”  Teach it to yourself to arm yourself.

– Pray that the Lord and praise Him.  Tell the Lord that you trust Him and ask Him to protect you from the evil one.

How will you use this free bible song in your life this week? with your spouse? your children? your family? your neighbors?
