From him comes my salvation

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.

Lord I come in agreement with Steve's prayer and I pray that this new year will bring even more positive progress in Ian's life. I pray that his family and friends will be strengthened and encouraged as they continue to have faith and wait upon you. May your peace, your love, your joy surround them as they enter a brand new year with renewed faith in you.

AS Ian talks to God in his Silence, so may his family speak about God aloud! May they continue to show the compassion, stregnth of our Lord Jesus Christ in all that they do and to all that they see. May Ian find his way from the silence thru Christ our Lord. May this be the year of his salvation of body to match the salvation of his soul. I pray for the Lord's stregnth to continue to flow thru Ian and his family and friends and give them the stregnth to carry on. KNOW you are loved by Him and many others!
