Do you ever read the Bible, especially the Psalms, and run across a portion of scripture that has been adapted into a song that you sing in church? Every so often, I do. I find it refreshing, and a bit rewarding, to find that because I’m familiar with the song, I’ve actually memorized scripture without even trying. Psalm 62 verses 5 and 6 is one such example for me. It says:
“Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.”
What a very encouraging verse. God is our rock. He is our salvation. He is our fortress. In him our soul can find rest. And if we truly put our hope in him - the God of all creation, the one who has the power to perform miracles, and the one who is able to save our soul from eternal damnation, our faith will not be shaken. How is your faith today? If it is weak I encourage you to put your trust in God. Remember who he is. Remember what he’s done, and put your hope in him. I encourage you today to let go of your fears and put your complete trust in God.
Let us put our complete trust - our complete hope - in God to the point where we will not be shaken. There is no stronger foundation for our faith. Every other solution is flawed. We can’t trust men, we can’t trust fate, we can’t trust our government, and we can’t trust our financial security. All of these things can fail us. And none of these things are the solution in every situation. But God is. There is nothing to big for him and there is nothing impossible for him. Let us put our hope in the one who made us and everything that we know. Because when God is for us, who can be against us? I encourage you to put your complete faith in him to the point where whatever life throws at you, you’ll never be shaken.
