Psalm 62:5-7 “I wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him.  He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken.  My salvation and my honor come from God alone.  He is my refuge; a rock where no enemy can reach me.”

Will I wait quietly, and trust in God alone?  Or will I run in a frenzy, and try to “fix” things?

Will I trust God with my “honor,” my reputation?  Will I leave that with Him, and commit to walk in integrity?

Oh, God, You alone are my refuge.  Help me not to try to find refuge in what I can do, or what I can say, or even in who I can get to “like me.”  I can trust You.  I can run to You.  You will take care of me.  No one can snatch me out of Your hand.  I am completely safe with You.  What a Savior You are!

Romans 6:23

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Even though I’ve earned death, God gives me life because Jesus suffered the penalty of the wrath of a just God on all my sins.

What a merciful God!  What a generous Savior! Lord, how could I not give You my life, when You have given so much to me?!
