1 For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. 2 He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.
Good morning! Your devotional meditation comes from Psalm 62. It does not matter who we are. It does not matter how nice we are. It does not matter if we always mind our own business. It does not matter how much we are used by God for His purpose. There will always be someone who will stand in opposition to us. Do not be surprised by this.
King David’s own son Absalom stood in opposition and rebelled against his own father. It is during those times we are experiencing opposition that we must have confident trust in the Lord our God. David declares that his soul “waits” on God alone for his deliverance. The word “wait” means to have confidence in God alone and to silently expect divine aid in the time of great trouble. David expresses his confident trust in God by using strong metaphors in verses 2 and 4: my Rock, my Salvation, my Fortress. These words express that David put his complete trust in God to protect and deliver him while he was facing hostility. Take this time to read and meditate on this psalm and gain more confidence that God is able and willing to help during times of opposition and whatever trouble we face.
Blessings to you,
