This I know, that God is for me. Psalm 56:9b What we understand of Him is good and loving. Let us be sure that what we do not yet understand is good and loving too. Alexander Maclaren, 1826-1910, British Baptist expository preacher

Your vows are binding upon me, O God; I will render thank offerings to You. Psalm 56:12 Committed to trust Thee during the storms of night; Lord I gratefully sing Thy praises for bringing me into the morning light.

You have delivered my soul from death, Indeed my feet from stumbling, So that I may walk before God In the light of the living. Psalm 56:13 We must never mistake the process for the result. There is suffering; but this is only the process. God isn't going to stop with the process; He wants to produce the final result. Suffering leads to glory; shame leads to honor; weakness leads to power. This is God's way of doing things. Warren W. Wiersbe

(Psalm of David) Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, For my soul takes refuge in You.. 57:1a I implore you in God's name, not to think of Him as hard to please, but rather as generous beyond all that you can ask or think. Abbe Henri de Tourville, 1842-1903, French vicar, author, semi-public lecturer

And in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge Until destruction passes by. Psalm 57:1b Help me to leave my concerns in thy hands, for thou hast power over evil, and bringest from it an infinite progression of good, until thy purposes are fulfilled. Valley of Vision, Puritan Prayers and Devotions, 1600/1700s
