“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” (Psalm 62:1-2, ESV). In another psalm, David reflects on his confidence in God’s protection against the schemes of the wicked. Though enemies assail him, (vv.3-4), he will trust in God’s deliverance (vv.5-7). Notable in this psalm is the repeated reference to God as the only hope, the sole reliance of His people (vv.1, 2, 5, 6). In God alone should we hope; He is able to bring us through every trial.
Even when you must wait, wait confidently upon the Lord. God is compassionate and gracious, matchless in might, faithful and good. He is all the confidence His people need, and He is the only one who never fails. May you face every struggle in reliance upon His infinite strength.
