The Psalmist reminds us that no matter what struggles we have on this earth, nothing is beyond God’s power to control. “Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” (Psalms 55:22) He also reminds us that God will handle our fears as well. “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?” (Psalms 56:3-4) He makes a similar statement again and again reminds us to give praise to Him and His word. “In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me?” (Psalms 56:10-11) The words of the Psalmist are true; God is our strength and power every day if we will just follow Him.
