Trust in God Alone–Psalm 62

The importance of trusting in God alone can not be overstated and is of utmost importance in the life of every person. The psalmist knew this and therefore praised God in both the good times and in the bad. We must remember that our protection, livelihood and eternal salvation comes from Him – and Him alone. Let the powerful words of the psalmist – words of praise, prayer and adoration – align your thoughts, feelings and emotions with unwavering love and trust for your Rock, your Shield, your forever Fortress.

Trust in God Alone–Psalm 62

“Truly my soul finds rest in God;
    my salvation comes from Him.
Truly He is my Rock and my salvation;
    He is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

How long will you assault me?
    Would all of you throw me down—
    this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
Surely they intend to topple me
    from my lofty place;
    they take delight in lies.
With their mouths they bless,
    but in their hearts they curse.

Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
    my hope comes from Him.
Truly He is my Rock and my salvation;
    He is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my honor depend on God;
    He is my mighty Rock, my refuge.
Trust in Him at all times, you people;
    pour out your hearts to Him,
    for God is our refuge.

Surely the lowborn are but a breath,
    the highborn are but a lie.
If weighed on a balance, they are nothing;
    together they are only a breath.
Do not trust in extortion
    or put vain hope in stolen goods;
though your riches increase,
    do not set your heart on them.

One thing God has spoken,
    two things I have heard:
“Power belongs to You, God,
    and with You, Lord, is unfailing love”;
and, “You reward everyone
    according to what they have done.”

[Read, pray, and meditate on these powerful words of praise for your Lord. No matter what happens, no matter how things seem today, keep trusting Him. Keep believing in His love and goodness. Keep praising Him no matter what!]
