WHENEVER I AM AFRAID…

I will trust in you. A mediation on Psalm 56

We last left David wishing that he had the wing of a dove so he could flee to the wilderness and find rest. You know you are hard up when your desire is to flee to a desert for refuge! Here we meet him singing to the tune of “The Silent Dove in Distant Lands.” His faith served as the wing he needed. His God came through for him again!

Psalm 55 (https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ps+56&version=NKJV) relates to David’s capture by the Philistines in Gath before he arrived at Adullum (https://tribalminded.com/2021/04/06/revival-in-adullam), as recounted in 1 Samuel 21:10-15. This tender psalm is summarized in the table below.

Psalm 56

I haven’t painted in months and lately I’m so thrilled to stand at my easel again with brush in hand. I’m working on this beauty for my precious friend friend Janet who just turned (ahem…) and has walked in the wilderness in the last few years. This verse has buoyed me of late…
