13 For I hear the whispering of many—
terror on every side!—
as they scheme together against me,
as they plot to take my life.
14 But I trust in you, O Lord;
I say, “You are my God.”
Have you ever felt threatened by your boss, a co-worker, or even a disgruntled family member? Sometimes our feelings reflect intended harm when it’s a figment of our imagination. On the other hand, we might have good reason for fear just as David did in this passage of Scripture. Verse 14 tells us to trust in God. I have experienced God’s protection many times in my life and it was only through trusting in the Lord that I remained calm.
