God is FOR You

I love the Psalms.  What a place to go when you need encouragement in your heart!  I started re-reading the book when my heart was troubled and I have been so encouraged.  I loved the gentle reminders to have a broken, contrite heart before God.  I love how David cried out to God with every ounce of His soul and God called him a man after my own heart.  The Psalms are passionate pleas, gentle reminders of who God is, and heart cries of praise.  This passage stuck out to me today:

Psalm 56:8-13  
You number my wanderings;
Put my tears into Your bottle;
Are they not in Your book?
When I cry out to You,
Then my enemies will turn back;

This I know because God is for me.
In God (I will praise His word)
In the Lord (I will praise His word),
In God I will put my trust;
I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?

For You have delivered my soul from death.
Have You not kept my feet from falling,
That I may walk before God
In the light of the living?

I know that different Scriptures speak to us at different times in our journeys, but I hope this one blesses you today the way it blessed me.
