Good Emphasis

Psalm 62

One of the things I notice about Psalm 62 is that several key ideas are repeated and emphasized for us.

- For God alone, my soul waits
- He only is my rock and salvation (hope); my fortress
- I shall not be shaken

All incredible reminders that God has us and our lives covered. So coming to Psalm 61 yesterday and 62 today was good for me.

So how might we put Psalm 62 into practice in our day-to-day lives? How can we draw on these incredible words and let them be our guide? Tami W.

men are fallible, even if they sound like a Bell or a Warrin, when they deviate from God's clear WORD (Logos), truth in the Lord, hope in His Salvation.


Psalm 62:1-12 (ESV)
One verse per line


My Soul Waits for God Alone
1 For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. 2 He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken. 3 How long will all of you attack a man to batter him, like a leaning wall, a tottering fence? 4 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 5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. 6 He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. 7 On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. 8 Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. Selah 9 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. 10 Put no trust in extortion; set no vain hopes on robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart on them. 11 Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this: that power belongs to God, 12 and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love. For you will render to a man according to his work

This world, just like David's enemies, does try to topple us at every turn. As we draw close to God and rest in Him, our Strong Tower, he guards and protects us, and with His shelter, we won't be shaken.

God promises us that as we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us. What a wonderful promise of His presence!

How can I put this psalm into practice? This life brings so many things our way... good things, bad things, joys, sorrows...

There is one verse in particular that has helped me in many situations. It is verse 8: Trust in Him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before Him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

I need to trust Him at all times. I need to pour out my heart to Him & remember: He is my refuge!
