Find Rest in God Alone

Today, as so much is raging in our country right now and so much is going on in my own personal life, I feel compelled to do something very different today with my devotional. I want to leave you solely with the words of Psalm 62 in its entirety, as opposed to sharing with you my own mere thoughts. 

Whatever you may find yourself doing through right at this very moment, may these words be the balm to your soul that they have been to mine. God bless you!

"I am at rest in God alone;

my salvation comes from him.

He alone is my rock and my salvation,

my stronghold; I will never be shaken.

How long will you threaten a man?

Will all of you attack[a]

as if he were a leaning wall

or a tottering fence?

They only plan to bring him down

from his high position.

They take pleasure in lying;

they bless with their mouths,

but they curse inwardly.Selah

Rest in God alone, my soul,

for my hope comes from him.

He alone is my rock and my salvation,

my stronghold; I will not be shaken.

My salvation and glory depend on God, my strong rock.

My refuge is in God.

Trust in him at all times, you people;

pour out your hearts before him.

God is our refuge.Selah

Common people are only a vapor;

important people, an illusion.

Together on a scale,

they weigh less than a vapor.

Place no trust in oppression

or false hope in robbery.

If wealth increases,

don’t set your heart on it.

God has spoken once;

I have heard this twice:

strength belongs to God,

and faithful love belongs to you, Lord.

For you repay each according to his works."

~Psalm 62
