‘For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation.’ (Psalm 62:1 NRSV)
Let us be like the psalmist and still our souls before God, to wait for him alone!
In the Bible waiting is not passive, but we can still be silent in that waiting, not filling it with ourselves, or with the other junk that is life! If we wait for God alone, he will respond to us, and if we are silent then it will be easier for us to hear him and his still small voice!
Our salvation comes from God! He alone can save us from our sins! Jesus alone was good enough to pay the price for our sins. He alone was sinless, so he alone could pay the price for sinful men and women.
He is ‘the author and finisher of our faith’ (Hebrews 12:2 KJV) so let us look to him alone.
Father God, I thank you for paying the price for my sins, and ask that you will help me not to run away from silence, because there I can hear your still small voice. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
