God’s Truth for Trying Times - 5/14/20


We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).


READ: Psalm 62:1-2

"For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.” (Psalm‬ ‭62:1-2‬)

CONSIDER: It's awesome that God lets us wait in silence for him. He is our salvation. Salvation is only in Jesus Christ. So this is pointing forward to Christ. I love where it says that He alone is my rock and my fortress. In Hebrew a rock would be a place you would take shelter underneath. Like something that was jutting out that has an overhang. Or something you would stand on that is solid. A fortress on the other hand is a strong tower; something high and inaccessible. Something that people cannot get to very easily. What this verse is telling us is that we will stand firm and secure because God is our fortress, no one can steal us from Him. No one can overpower Him. Praise God.


THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?


PRAY:‬‬ Pray these verses to God as a prayer. Pour out your heart in praise to God. Pray for others. Present needs to Him.
