Psalm 62:1-3 NIV 2011
Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
How long will you assault me? Would all of you throw me down—this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
Knowing the Lord intimately, there were times when David was threatened yet he still trusted God with his protection. Psalm 5:3, “In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.” God was his rock and ever beside him. Psalm 18:31, “For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God?” Like Moses, David knew God stood between him and harm. Exodus 15:2, “The Lord is my strength and my defense…” God remains with His faithful people.
After the sermon on John 3:16-18 this morning, we were asked, “Why does God love us so much?” When I take stock of my life, I wonder why does He love me so much. I’m still a big sinner even though I belong to Him. But then I look at God’s Word I see many flawed sinful men and women that belonged to Him. I then remember God uses people like me daily to bring about His good purposes. Though I am a sinner, God remains with me still.
Where is God using us for His good purposes?
We’re sinners lovingly saved,
