Psalm 62:1 Waiting Silently

Truly my soul waits for God; from Him comes my salvation. Psalm 62:1

Waiting is something that is difficult for many people. The majority of people want what they want right now or at least faster than what is possible. During times that people have to wait, many will choose to complain about the having to wait and why they have to wait. They will also blame others for the time of waiting, rather than being patient and understanding. Many will then try to take things into their own hands and make it work, rather than wait for the right time or best way.

David states that his soul waits silently for God, because it is from God that comes his salvation.

Going through life, people have many different struggles and difficulties. Sometimes people will see a relief from those problems that is on its way. Once it is seen, they still have to wait for it to arrive.

Waiting silently is very difficult for most people. During the wait there may be pain and suffering, so many people blame God and others and complain about the wait.

Instead of complaining, believers are to silently wait for God to bring about their salvation. This salvation not only includes the saving of the soul and stepping into eternity in heaven with God, but it also includes being saved from troubles in this life. It may be the removal of the difficulty, or strength to make it through the difficulty or it may be bringing one into heaven for eternity.

Complaining is not believing that God is in control and will provide salvation at the right time and in the best way. One has to remember and fully believe that God is in complete control. Everything is done in His perfect timing.

Going through life you will have times that are difficult. You may wonder how long you will have to go through those times. You may wonder why you are going through them and when God will save you from them. Do not allow yourself to complain or get angry that God has not brought about the needed salvation from a problem, but wait silently, trusting that He is in control and will meet your needs at the perfect time and in the perfect way. It is only from God that you true and perfect salvation comes.

Are you waiting on God’s move?

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will know God is in control; that you will wait silently for God to bring about your needed salvation; that you will trust God’s timing and ways; and that you will know it is God alone who brings your salvation.
