Once Spoken, Twice Heard

“Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this: that power belongs to God, and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love” (Psalm 62:11-12, ESV). At the end, David underlines the twofold basis of trust in God: His power and His love. Why wait upon the Lord (vv.1, 5)? Why rely upon Him as your stronghold against danger (vv.2, 6, 8)? Because God is able and willing to save. With a little poetic crescendo, David extols God’s might and mercy.

Trust in the Lord, who is strong beyond measure, who is abundant in steadfast love. Make the character of God your confidence—the unchanging, uncontestable might and mercy of your heavenly Father, not the shifting circumstances of this life. Fix your faith upon God, who is able and willing to save
