Commentary:  All three of today’s psalms are written by David.  They carry a common theme: turning to the Lord and trusting in Him for deliverance.  Psalm 54 was written after David had been betrayed by Saul.  Psalm 55 may have been written during his flight from his son, Absalom, and after David had been betrayed by a trusted friend.  Psalm 56 was written when David had been captured by the Philistines at Gath.

Focus Verses:  56:1-13  Of what does David write?  What does it mean to you?  How does it inspire you?
