Warren moved to a small town to pastor a church. After his ministry had some initial success, one of the locals took a dislike to him. Concocting a story accusing Warren of horrendous acts, the man took the story to the local newspaper and even printed his accusations on pamphlets to distribute to local residents by mail. Warren and his wife started praying hard. If the lie was believed, their lives would be upended.

King David once experienced something similar. He faced an attack of slander by an enemy. “All day long they twist my words,” he said, “all their schemes are for my ruin” (Psalm 56:5). This sustained assault left him fearful and tearful (v. 8). But in the midst of the battle, he prayed this powerful prayer: “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. . . . What can mere mortals do to me?” (vv. 3–4).

David’s prayer can be a model for us today. When I am afraid—in times of fear or accusation, we turn to God. I put my trust in you—we place our battle in God’s powerful hands. What can mere mortals do to me?—facing the situation with Him, we remember how limited the powers against us really are.

The newspaper ignored the story about Warren. For some reason, the pamphlets were never distributed. What battle are you fearing today? Talk to God. He is willing to fight it with you.

Welcome to today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread. Today's reading titled facing fear was written by shared invoicing. Warren moved to a small town to pastor a church after his ministry had some initial success. One of the locals turned on him concocting a story accusing Warren of horrendous acts.

The man took the story to the local newspaper and even printed his accusations on pamphlets to distribute to local residents by mail Warren and his wife started praying hard if the lie was believed, their lives would be upended. King David once experienced something similar. He faced an attack of slander by an enemy all day long.

They twist my words he said in Psalm 56 all their schemes are for my ruin.

The sustained assault left him fearful and tearful, but in the midst of the battle. He prayed with this powerful prayer when I am afraid I put my trust in you. What can mere mortals do to me. David's prayer can be a model for us today. When I am afraid in times of fear or accusation, we turn to God.

I put my trust in you.

We place our battle in God's powerful hands. What can mere mortals do to me facing the situation with him. We remember how limited the powers against us really are.

The newspaper ignored the story about Warren. For some reason the pamphlets were never distributed what battle do you fear today. Talk to God. These willing to fight it with you today's Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Psalm 56 verses three through 11 when I am afraid I put my trust in you and God whose word I praise in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me all day long. They twist my words all their schemes are for my ruin. They conspire, they lurk they watch my steps, hoping to take my life because of their wickedness. Do not let them escape in your anger, God, bring the nations down record my misery list my tears on your scroll are they not in your record. Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help by this. I will know that God is for me in God, whose word I praise in the Lord, whose word I praise in God I trust and am not afraid.

What can man do to me.

Let's pray dear God, thank you that we can lay all of our burdens, tears, fears and questions at your feet and for giving us peace and hope even in our most trying circumstances. We pray for those today who are struggling and have lost hope and ask that you would renew their strength and remind them that their life is in your hands, and that you care for them and are fighting for them. Thank you Lord it's in Jesus name we pray.

Amen on today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
