Psalm 62 – Day 2

A Quiet, Patient Hope.
(Based on Psalm 62)

I am learning to wait quietly and confidently in the Lord,
Because He is my only source of true salvation.
I don’t find strength, deliverance, or refuge anywhere else.
He alone keeps me from being shaken by this world.
And I have a message for my enemies:
How long are you going to keep attacking me?
You’re all out to break me, but be careful,
To God, your defenses are like an unstable wall or a fence that is about to fall down.
You plot among yourselves about how to bring me down.
You’re nothing but liars, always talking trash about me,
Except when you’re in my company, then you act like my friends.
But I am learning to wait quietly and confidently in the Lord,
Because my hope comes from Him.
I don’t find strength, deliverance, or refuge anywhere else.
He alone keeps me from being shaken by this world.
God provides me with salvation, dignity, a source of strength, and a refuge.
Those who claim to believe in Him should trust Him all the time.
Pour out your heart to Him, because He really is a shelter in the storm.
All men, regardless of their status, are worthless, like a mist.
They deceive and lie, and their combined worth is that of air.
Don’t put your confidence in getting ahead through immoral means.
Even if you’re fortunate enough to gain wealth, don’t rely on it.
I’ve heard it said that true strength belongs to God alone, and so does mercy.
I’ve also heard it said that God pays back men according to their deeds.
He is merciful, but He is also just.
