    What time iam afraid.or when.. .we are weak but he is strong we will have fear at times or he wouldnt have said it
  • Della stinson on Psalms 56:3
    I think psalms 56 means to trust in the lord and don 't be afraid and what ever assignment that he has for us we should stand on God and faith. I like how David handled his situation. ever tho he was out of place he acknowledge God and ask God for his protection.
  • MokingBirdc on Psalms 56:3
    Fear is a tangible force and it is real. Just as faith is a tangible force and is real. Fear can and does come against me but I do not have to go with it. God has made a way of escape. Praise God !! I do not have to allow fear to control me. The devils things are always trying to control but God 's things that He gives are not a controlling force. God does not and will not be a comtrolling force but when I am doing God 's word I am allowing His word to control my actions words and deeds. Which is the way of peace !! What time fear comes against me I will put my Trust in the Lord.
  • Carmie on Psalms 56:3
    This verse remind me of Psalms 23 that says Even the shadow of death I will fear no evil for Thou Art with me If you don t really have the Lord where you put all your trust you surely have this fear coz you really don t where and how your life and spirit ended up to Biblical approach about sin and human they both go together untended or unintended since we are still in human flesh it us who pressurized sin because we yield in which in reality people doesn t have fear about it coz they just have to pray and read His word to get strength to do it Everyday living facing danger that is unknown and uncertainty of what the future will be like is the fear most have
  • Astley Scott on Psalms 56:3
    lets face it as believers in this world we are constantly feeling the pressures of sin and sinfulness all around us and there are times even with us living by faith that these pressures will cause us to feel afraid but God s word is our hiding place from the spirit of fear that these things presents There is peace shalom in the midst of confusion trouble pressure uncertainty my peace my shalom Jesus said I give unto you not as the world giveth give I unto you let not your heart be troubled john 14 27
  • Preston Gravely, Jr. on Psalms 56:3
    The Lord has really encouraged me with this psalm, especially that 3rd verse. I have learned, like David, that we are not immune to fear, but that if we belong to the Lord, we can trust Him to be with us and help us during those times. David does not deny the reality of being afraid, but he knows Who will be with him when he is.
