For God Alone

David’s life has brought him many good things, and then they have all been torn away at different times. As a result, the desires of his soul have been purified, and now in Psalm 62 he testifies to the all-sufficiency of God to satisfy his soul. He has rejected power, riches, and mankind, and waits silently for God alone. As we come to worship, let us call upon God to grant us this purity of heart – to wait patiently, uncomplainingly, undemandingly, for God and God alone. Not God and a job, not God and a spouse, not God and more money, not God and healing, not God and… To God alone belongs steadfast love. Trust in him at all times, for God alone is your salvation.
