“Truly, my soul silently waits for God; From Him comes my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, He is my defense. I shall not be greatly moved.” Psalm 62:1-2
Sometimes when everything is going well and there is beautiful sunshine outside I forget this concept. I have it all covered. I don’t really ‘need’ God. Not really in the sense of desperate need like when I have no where else to turn. But truly this concept is for now and it is for when there is an urgent necessity. I need God. I need Him to defend me. I need to wait for Him and I need to know that I will not be moved when I rely on Him, my defense, my rock, my fortress, my salvation. He alone can fulfill me, even in the midst of the good times when it all seems so good. And it is rather good. Even while there is still homework and deadlines and end of the year stuff, overwhelming people, lack of sleep from everyone being off kilter, sickness, and uncertain futures. It truly is good. God is good even now.
“My soul, wait silently for God alone. For my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my salvation and my refuge is in God. Trust in Him at all times, you people. Pour out your heart before Him. God is a refuge for us”. Psalm 62:5-8
