Psalm 62:8 – Verse of the Day 7/22/13
From beginning to end, Psalm 62 is a song about trusting in God. David wrote this song from the perspective of a person under attack, and he lists a variety of forces that might lead him to fear. Evil people and bad circumstances might surround him, but nevertheless he realizes that trust in the Lord leads to rest for the soul. As a result he exhorts us to trust the Lord at all times, to pour out our hearts to God, and to take refuge in Him because we know he hears us.
Spend some time pouring out your heart to the Lord. Pray out loud, and list the areas of your life that feel under attack. Ask the Lord to help you to trust Him in those areas, and thank Him that he not only saves us by faith, but provides a refuge for us in the midst of our present troubles.
