My soul is quiet and waits for God alone. He is the One Who saves me. – Psalms 62:1
My soul is quiet and waits for God alone. My hope comes from Him. – Psalm 62:5
I have been in fixer mode, in saver mode – it’s just my nature. However, I have been trying desperately to focus on the truth that this is an impossible task. I am not the fixer or the saver. That doesn’t mean I don’t help, assist, and support, but I am not responsible for fixing and I am not capable of it.
So, my soul is quiet and waits for God alone. This doesn’t mean I am alone, but that God alone is the one who can save us. God alone is the one with whom all of our hope dwells.
I love the poetry of this Psalm in the repetition. These two sentences are just a few verses apart, but I like them together. My soul is quiet and waits for God alone. My hope comes from Him because he is ONLY One who saves me…repeatedly, daily, when I don’t deserve it (and He is the only one who will save those I love).
Sometimes I forget my inadequacies somehow and try to do more than I am able. So, this was a good and timely reminder of where hope and salavation truly lies.
