MARCH 31 – Where is your expectation?
Psalm 62:5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; 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; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.
This gives us the thought that our soul should be fixed upon God. A time of silence and pray will bring us to the point that we will give ourselves to the Lord. We will more readily come to an agreement with God and submit ourselves to Him. Why begin our day without Him when His desire to guide us and have us come into an agreement with Him over the day that is here. Notice that our expectation is from God. What is our great hope? To be in the presence of the Lord. What we are hoping for, our expectation comes from God. He is the author of our expectation.
We no surer foundation that God. When we build upon Him and accept His salvation, nothing can shake us loose. We can suffer sorrow and understand that God is with us to succor us. We suffer attacks and know that God is my defense. We will suffer many things in this life but we are secure on the foundation of God. The defense of God is impenetrable. There are none that can come through His defense.
I consider that I have many brethren in the Lord and I love them, but they are not my salvation or glory. They are not my strength or my refuge. They are weak and fallible just like I am. God is my salvation and I glory in Him. He is the rock that gives me strength daily. He is the one I flee to when I need a place of safety.
Does your soul wait upon the Lord? Do you trust Him implicitly?
