I'm no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
The words God says most to us in His Word are "Do not be afraid!"
For the director of music. To the tune of " A Dove on Distant Oaks". Of David. A miktam. When the Philistines had seized him in Gath.

1 Be merciful to me, my God,for my enemies are in hot pursuit;all day long they press their attack. 2 My adversaries pursue me all day long;in their pride many are attacking me.

Psalm 56:5-6 NIV
5 All day long they twist my words;all their schemes are for my ruin. 6 They conspire, they lurk,they watch my steps,hoping to take my life.
Psalm 56:7-9 NIV
7 Because of their wickedness do not let them escape;in your anger, God, bring the nations down. 8 Record my misery;list my tears on your scroll—are they not in your record? 9 Then my enemies will turn backwhen I call for help.By this I will know that God is for me.
