Be gracious to me, O God, for man tramples on me;
all day long an attacker oppresses me;
my enemies trample on me all day long,
for many attack me proudly.
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?
All day long they injure my cause;
all their thoughts are against me for evil.
They stir up strife, they lurk;
they watch my steps,
as they have waited for my life.
For their crime will they escape?
In wrath cast down the peoples, O God!
You have kept count of my tossings;
put my tears in your bottle.
Are they not in your book?

I am not a very adventurous person, so fear is a given in my daily life, just as it is in many others. David said here it is not if he had fear but when he did. David’s trust was already in God, as is ours, but it seems like he had to remind himself of that fact. When fear shows up, it can be hard to remember that God has the ultimate authority over everything. He has already defeated the cause of the fear. We must remember that if our trust is in Him, nothing man or the world throws at us will succeed in bringing us down. Trust in the Lord!
