Words of Encouragement: Psalms 62:5-7

5For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
    for my hope is from him.
 6 He only is my rock and my salvation,
    my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
 7On God rests my salvation and my glory;
    my mighty rock, my refuge is God.

Sometimes the storms rise up against us and the waves seem to hit us from all directions. Sometimes we are tested and tried, tested and tried by every wind that seems to blow our way. These are the times we are called upon to find hope and peace in God who is our Rock. They are the times that we are challenged to discover that God remains our only fortress. They are the times we are called upon to refuse to be shaken, to refuse to give up. They the times we are called upon to stand strong though the reason to stand seems to fade away. At such times we must focus on the power and the love of God the Almighty.

With God as our fortress, our source of protection, we have reason to continue believing. We have every reason to expect and enjoy the quiet rest and the peace from our Lord, our solid Rock. Even when sorrow seems to penetrate our inner being and our hearts seems to sink into despondency. We can still believe that we will yet rise up to the top of the mountain, rise up to joy and victory. We must still believe that we will rise up because the Rock that is higher than us is with us. This Rock is our God, our fortress, our refuge, our salvation!

This Rock is the reason we are able to touch lives and speak the message of love and hope to the broken hearted. Let us keep doing it for in so doing we help them find refuge and healing in the same God.
