From NetBible Ps 56:4
In God (I will praise His word), In God I have put my trust; I will not fear. What can flesh do to me?

  • * praise His word = boast in His promise
  • * God’s “word” is here understood as an assuring promise of protection. Another option (2) is to translate, “in God I will boast [with] a word.” In this case, the “word” is a song of praise. The present translation reflects yet another option (3): In this case “I praise his word” is a parenthetical statement, with “his word” being the object of the verb.

.
From NetBible Ps 46:10
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

  • Be still and know = cease/stop striving and recognize, be at peace in the knowledge
    • * To the nations who rage against God and His people, this is a rebuke to stop fighting/ striving against the Sovereign Lord
    • * To God’s children this is a call to trust and rest secure in the Sovereign Lord’s protection
  • exalted means recognized as Sovereign King => The Lord of Hosts, King of Glory(Ps 24:10) who fights and delivers on behalf of His children(Ps 46:11)

From Ps 3:3 bible hub{Barnes Notes}

  • My shield – Not only in these dangers, but in all dangers. The declaration here has a general form, as if he could trust in Him at all times.
  • My glory – My honor, or the source of my honor. That is, He bestows upon me all the honor that I have, and it is my glory that I may put my trust in Him.
  • The lifter up of my head – The head, in time of trouble and sorrow is naturally bowed down, as if overpowered with the weight of affliction. Psalm 35:14 : “I bowed down heavily as one that mourneth for his mother;” (Ps 38:6;Ps 42:5; Ps 44:25; Ps 57:6; Jn 19:30) To lift up the head, therefore, or to raise one up, is to relieve his distresses, or to take away his troubles. Such a helper, David says, he had always found God to be, and he looks to Him as one who is able to help him still.

Grace and Glory

Psalm 119:49-50 AMP … Remember [fervently] the word and promise to Your servant, in which You have caused me to hope. This is my comfort and consolation in my affliction: that Your word has revived me and given me life.

affliction[06040] = suffering, pain, sorrow, trouble
revived[02421] gives life, quickened, restored, refreshed

  • from sickness, discouragement, faintness, death

His word
……quickened
……revives
……refreshes
……restores
……brings hope
……brings life

Psalm 84:11-12 AMP … For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord bestows [present] grace and favor and [future] glory (honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss)! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts in You [leaning and believing on You, committing all and confidently looking to You, and that without fear or misgiving]!

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. -Heb 4:16

Those who know His grace WILL glory again!

Two golden links of one celestial chain:
Who owneth grace shall surely glory gain. -Spurgeon
