O God My Salvation

My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.
My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.
On God my salvation and my glory rest; The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah.
Psalms 62:1‭-‬2‭, ‬5‭-‬8 NASB

Do you know God as your rock? Your stronghold? Your hope? Your strength? Your refuge? Your trust?

Troubles? Burdens? Feel lost?

🌹Wait in silence for God only. Pour out your heart before Him; God is our refuge.

Reflection

As in water face reflects face, So the heart of man reflects man.

Righteous Rain

Woe to them, for they have strayed from Me! Destruction is theirs, for they have rebelled against Me! I would redeem them, but they speak lies against Me.
Hosea 7:13 NASB

Thus says the Lord to this people, “Even so they have loved to wander; they have not kept their feet in check. Therefore the Lord does not accept them; now He will remember their iniquity and call their sins to account.”
Jeremiah 14:10 NASB

God’s people. Rebelling. Turning away from His way. Seeking our own way. God’s grace doesn’t mean we can live our lives opposite, contrary to His way. God wants a repentant and seeking heart.
Look around you. Are we living in the wake of our rebellion?

You have plowed wickedness, you have reaped injustice, You have eaten the fruit of lies. Because you have trusted in your way, in your numerous warriors,
Hosea 10:13 NASB

🌹Sow with a view to righteousness, Reap in accordance with kindness; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the Lord Until He comes to rain righteousness on you.

God Cannot Be Contained

“Go and say to My servant David, ‘Thus says the Lord, “Are you the one who should build Me a house to dwell in? For I have not dwelt in a house since the day I brought up the sons of Israel from Egypt, even to this day; but I have been moving about in a tent, even in a tabernacle. Wherever I have gone with all the sons of Israel, did I speak a word with one of the tribes of Israel, which I commanded to shepherd My people Israel, saying, ‘Why have you not built Me a house of cedar?’ ” ’
2 Samuel 7:5‭-‬7 NASB

God was with Israel as they traveled (sojourned) across the wilderness and beyond as they entered into the promised land. God moved in a tent, the tabernacle.

Today God is with us in His Holy Spirit residing in us, His people, as we travel this wilderness on the way to the promised land.

Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, “I will dwell in them and walk among them; And I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
2 Corinthians 6:16 NASB

Is the Holy Spirit living in you? If yes, then is He moving freely to accomplish His will in you or are you trying to contain God in “a house made of cedar”?

🌹Our God cannot be contained.

My Salvation

Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; For the Lord God is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation.”

Therefore you will joyously draw water      From the springs of salvation.

An ever flowing spring of salvation pouring out in thankfulness to God for His wonderful gift. A gift that can not be contained.

And in that day you will say, “Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name. Make known His deeds among the peoples; Make them remember that His name is exalted.”

The name above ALL names! The name of Jesus, through whom salvation comes, that can’t be kept quiet. Every knee shall bow, every tongue confess.

Praise the Lord in song, for He has done excellent things; Let this be known throughout the earth.

Cry aloud and shout for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, For great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.
Isaiah 12:2‭-‬6 NASB

🌹Only fear the Lord and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you.
1 Samuel 12:24 NASB

To God be the glory for the things He had done.

Wise and Discerning

O Ephraim, what more have I to do with idols? It is I who answer and look after you. I am like a luxuriant cypress; From Me comes your fruit. Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; Whoever is discerning, let him know them. For the ways of the Lord are right, And the righteous will walk in them, But transgressors will stumble in them.
Hosea 14:8‭-‬9 NASB

🌹🙏 The works of Your hands are truth and justice; All Your precepts are sure. They are upheld forever and ever; They are performed in truth and uprightness.
The way of the righteous is smooth; O Upright One, make the path of the righteous level.
Psalms 111:7‭-‬8 NASB/Isaiah 26:7 NASB

In Jesus name and for His glory amen.

Trust, Cling, Follow, Obey

He (King Hezekiah) trusted in the Lord, the God of Israel; so that after him there was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor among those who were before him. For he clung to the Lord; he did not depart from following Him, but kept His commandments, which the Lord had commanded Moses.
2 Kings 18:5‭-‬6 NASB

What can be said of you? Are you faithful?
Trusting in the Lord God?
Clinging to the Lord?
Following Jesus closely?
Keeping the commandments of God which He commanded?

🌹Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and turn away from evil.
Proverbs 3:5‭-‬7 NASB

Abandoned?

And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O Lord, have not forsaken (abandoned) those who seek You.

John 17:26 NASB

You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
