Psalm 62:1-8 – God is our Rock

Psalm 62:1-8
1
Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.
2 He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.
3 How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.
4 They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.
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

-Do you see the progression of David’s faith here?  In verses 1 and 2 he begins to place his confidence in the Lord and decides that his problems may move him, but they won’t move him greatly.  He starts thinking more on his situation in verses 3 and 4, but by verses 5 and 6 he is dwelling on how great and high the Lord is, and his confidence peaks; where once he was resigned that his problems may affect him slightly, now he is certain that they won’t move him at all.  His problems didn’t change; the only difference was a firm grasp on the fact that the Lord is a defense from all trouble.  Next time you feel like telling God how big your problem is, try telling your problem how big your God is.
