“My soul rests in God alone, from whom comes my salvation. God alone is my rock and salvation, my secure height, I shall never fall.” Psalms 62:2-3.
What if we lived like we believed this passage was true in our lives? We would likely be calmer, more relaxed and available to others in our lives because we would believe that someone more powerful than everyone and everything combined is our friend and our protector. That would be pretty incredible, and we would likely ask ourselves, “What am I afraid of? I have God to protect me.”
Our life may be very different if we chose to live from this perspective. We would likely relax more and trust that everything would work out well. We would probably smile more, allowing ourselves to be more in the moment and less worried about things over which we know we have no control. We would probably be a better friend or spouse, due to our ability to be more present and less distracted by things that don’t matter. We would understand the essence of life: that to live well we must really live, not be a spectator of this experience, but be intimately involved and trusting of ourselves and others.
In order to do this we must believe that God is our rock and our salvation, that He has our best interests in mind and that everything will work out well. We must believe that He is our secure height and that we will never fall. To fulfill this expectation would be an enormous accomplishment for any human being, but not for God. Allow your soul to rest in Him today.
