Psalm Sixty Two is Our Salvation

Lesson sixty one was about the daily vows that keep us mindful of our everyday obligations. They are like a piece of armor and a burden to be carried. Our defenses require a certain amount of effort but they need no thought or faith. Our faith is in our ability to act, to do what need calls for without hesitation.




62. God is Our Refuge

Truly my soul waits upon God, from Him comes my salvation.
He only is my rock and my salvation, He is my defense and I shall not be greatly moved.
How long will you think of mischief against one another?
All of you will die one day, like a tottering wall that must come down.

If it weren’t for conspiring to make trouble you wouldn’t speak to each other,
But you delight in lies, blessing with your mouth but cursing on the inside. So it goes.
My soul, it waits only upon God, my expectations are from Him.
He only is my rock and my salvation, He is my defense and I shall not be moved.

In God is my salvation and my glory, the rock of my strength and my refuge.
Trust in Him always, my friends, pour out your hearts to Him,
For God is a refuge for us. So it will always be.
Surely villains and robbers vainly seek greater riches,

While the vainly rich are living a lie.
They balance each other, and combined they are not worth a thing.
Don’t trust in oppression or expect robbery to give you gain,
If your riches increase don’t let it take your heart.

God spoke to me once, yea twice have I heard it, that all power belongs to God.
To You also, Lord, belongs mercy, for You give to each according to his work.





We are called to battle the forces of evil that would overthrow us. We need more than hope, we need to trust our plan and we need to trust our defense. God is our salvation, but what does that mean? Do we always need to go to the brink of death and be drawn back at the last moment to feel our salvation? We are saved all day long whether we feel it or not. These psalms 61 and 62 are the helmet of salvation which is knowledge and truth.

We have been doing and thinking and feeling all through our journey through the Psalms, first one at a time in cycles of three, then all three together in each lesson. They are three ways we experience the world around us and experience ourselves. What we are making is the being that does those things, the being that needs the armor, the being that salvation creates. This new being waits on God, knows God's salvation, and is not moved by circumstances.

We watch what evil men do in amazement, how can they be so ignorant? They do nothing good by their own efforts yet believe they are powerful and rich because they are able to oppress others. In their vanity they wouldn’t speak to each other but for their conspiring to do harm for gain. They are not worthy of consideration, much less hatred for if they do not learn they will be gone.
