Sunday Reflection (January 24, 2021)

In Psalm 62 the Psalmist felt betrayed by those who surrounded him, yet the Psalmist prayed to trust in God alone. It is a humble, confident trust that leaves ultimate judgment to God. If you are struggling to put your trust in God, you are not alone, because it means that you are aware of things and situations in your life that have the potential to threaten your relationship with God and others by causing you to lose faith in God.
May we find the confidence to approach God like this Psalmist and in that regard, I find verse 8 crucial to this Psalm: “Pour out your hearts to God. God is a refuge for us.” Yes, we wait in silence but that does not mean we say nothing to God. God is more than ready to listen.
