For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation.
When you wait on God, you find He is your salvation and provider of all you need. Only God can fill the need of your soul.
If you are like me, my first response when faced with a significant problem is to gather up all my resources and do everything I can to fix it. The bigger the problem, the more frantic and anxious I become.
King David wrote this psalm during a particularly difficult time in his life. He was facing constant attacks from his son, who was trying to overthrow his rule as king. Instead of gathering his army and advisors, the first thing he did was go to the Lord. David understood that trusting in men was foolish. It was not about his strength or wisdom but God’s deliverance.
David saw God as his only true source of salvation. He stopped everything to get with the Lord. David didn’t come to God with loud cries or pleas for help. He came to God in silence. He waited before the Lord without speaking. When I face a problem, I want to tell God all about it. Too often, I come before Him filled with fear and anxiety. David came before God in complete rest.
David had a quiet confidence that God would see him through.
So often, we think prayer is about what we say and how we say it. If we can just use the right words, God will surely see our needs and answer our prayers. David understood it was not about his words but his faith. When you wait silently before the Lord, it’s not only an expression of your openness to God but a complete dependence on Him. Salvation and deliverance are always gifts of grace from God alone.
David didn’t trust in his strength or the wisdom of others. He didn’t panic and try to fix everything. He went to the source of his salvation and waited silently for Him to provide.
Look at that promise again.
For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. – Psalm 62:1
Make these confessions.
My salvation comes only from the Lord.
When I face troubles, I look to the Lord.
It’s not about my words but about His grace.
I wait quietly before the God of my salvation.
In Jesus’ Name,
When you face a problem, remember that salvation doesn’t come from a brilliant plan but from God’s hand. Go to God in silence and rest in Him.
