“For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.
How long will all of you attack a man
to batter him,
like a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
They only plan to thrust him down from his high position.
They take pleasure in falsehood.
They bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse. Selah
For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
On God rests my salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah
Those of low estate are but a breath;
those of high estate are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
they are together lighter than a breath.
Put no trust in extortion;
set no vain hopes on robbery;
if riches increase, set not your heart on them.
Once God has spoken;
twice have I heard this:
that power belongs to God,
and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love.
For you will render to a man
according to his work.” (Psalm 62)
David knew all too well about the Lord’s provision through tough times. He experienced many trials throughout his life. Yet David knew where he could turn to in those moments. This psalm is another example of the response David had to God’s faithfulness.
God loves us and is with us throughout all the times in our lives, the good and the bad. He is the one we can turn to when the storms come. He provides shelter from the storm. He is our rock and our salvation.
This week, like David, let us put our hope and trust in God through all the times that come to us, good and bad. Let us rest in Him.
