For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken. Ps 62:1-2
No matter what the trouble, this is the prescription: whether it's inner turmoil, an external threat, or an ongoing physical and emotional trial I'm experiencing, my soul must wait in silence for him. No matter what the difficulty, salvation comes from God. My questions and my struggle and my inner turmoil might even be related to his actions, but salvation still comes from him. I have to cling to him as my rock in the storm. I have to hide in him as my fortress in the battle against sin and faithlessness. With him as my rock and my fortress, I shall not be greatly shaken. Though I might be shaken some, I shall not be greatly shaken.
Lord, let Ian recognize the prescription, too. Help him to wait in his silence for you. Help him to daily recognize that salvation comes from you.
