Put All Our Hope in God

Put All Our Hope in God

January 27

Read: PSALM 62:5-10

“For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken” (vv. 5-6).

Have you ever become exhausted by all your efforts to draw a friend or family member to the feet of Christ? Sometimes we get so tired, overwhelmed, and frustrated that we lose hope and give up.

David wrote many of his psalms in times of war, and it is obvious in his prayers that he was tired. In this psalm though, he does not long for God to deliver him from his enemies—he longs for a time of rest (v. 5).

If we want to recover our family, ourselves, and others, we must stop along the way and look for a time of rest in God. True rest springs from a constant hope in God.

Heavenly Father, I thank you that we can rest in the hope that with you we will have victory in our lives. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayers. In Jesus’s name, AMEN.
