David’s words in Psalm 62 point us to God as the source of hope and rest. Are the pressures of life coming at you from all sides? Do you wonder if you can bear up under life’s circumstances? Have you been looking for assurance, direction, or stability? David knew these challenges in every area of his life—within his family and in all his leadership roles and responsibilities. So he writes from experience as he declares “truly my soul finds rest in God” (vs. 1). Where do you need rest?
Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. —Psalm 62:5-6
Prayer: God, thank You for offering rest to Your people. Although I may feel battered by life, You are my rest and in You I find hope. Give me breath to rise again and serve in the life-giving name of Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.
