Psalm 62:1-2 (AMP)
For God alone my soul waits in silence;
From Him comes my salvation.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
My defense and my strong tower; I will not be shaken or disheartened.
I believe the sooner we learn that only God can truly satisfy us, the better off we’ll all be. Everything else is just a bonus, a filler. If all the things we strove for were truly fulfilling, then we’d stop striving. We can have everything going for us and have everything we could ever want and still feel empty. The reason is we spend so much time pursuing things, people, recognition, worldly success and not nearly enough time pursuing God. We even pursue the encounter with Him more than we pursue Him. How often we forget that everything we need is in the presence of the Almighty God! If we pursue Him first, everything else will be added unto us!
Even though I’m married and have kids, there’s still a place in my heart that only God can fill. My husband, a wonderful man of God, yet still human, does and says things that aren’t always pleasant and my children often do things that don’t make me happy. They are human. No human should carry around the weight of having to make another person happy. For God alone, fills me completely. If I can’t feel His presence or hear His voice, I feel lost. I have to have God. Without Him, I’m an absolute mess. He truly is my rock, defense, my strong tower. It’s only by Him that I’m able to stand and not be shaken or disheartened.
Things are moving slower than I’d like right now but I know without a shadow of a doubt that my God is moving and working. I know this because I know Him. I know His character and I know His word, therefore, I continue to stand in faith and I will see the salvation of the Lord! Make sure that you know Him too!
