42 Days of Spiritual Detox

September 20 - Psalm 56:1-13
David, the author of this psalm, wrote this when he was running away from Saul to Gath where the Philistines lived. (1 Samuel 21:10-15) Remember, where Goliath lived? Even though David’s enemies were trying to kill him, he was confident in God and trusted him for protection and deliverance. This trust was based on David’s own experience and knowledge of God. What about you? Do you have a confident trust in God? We begin to have confidence in God as we build our relationship with him. This comes by reading and studying the Scriptures which God uses to reveal himself to us. It also comes through prayer, which is conversation with God, learning not just to talk to him but to listen as well.
