PS 62

Ps 62:1 Truly my soul silently waits for God; from Him comes my salvation.
:2 He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved.
:3 How long will you attack a man? You shall be slain, all of you, like a leaning wall and a tottering fence.
:4 They only consult to cast him down from his high position; they delight in lies; they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah
:5 My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.
:6 He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved.
:7 In God is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God,
:8 Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah
:9 Surely men of low degree are a vapor, men of high degree are a lie; if they are weighed on the scales, they are altogether lighter than vapor.
:10 Do not trust in oppression, nor vainly hope in robbery; if riches increase, do not set your heart on them.
:11 God has spoken oncem twice I have heard this: that power belongs to God.
:12 Also to You, O Lord, belongs mercy; for You render to each one according to his work.

This is headed as A Calm Resolve to Wait for the Salvation of God.

Where do you go when you need a little peace and quiet? Once in a while we all need time to think, time to pray, time to listen to our hearts and to God. When David needed a little peace and quiet he went to the Lord.

He calls God his rock, his salvation, his fortress, his refuge. Over and over he says that it was God alone who gave him the strength to stand against the pressures of life.
