I have a fluctuating heart. Spiritually speaking. It is calm… then it is not… it is angry… then it happy…it is uncertain… then it is confident. And that’s just during a news segment from BlazeTV. But it’s likely a good description of the heart of many in this world today. We get the rug jerked out from underneath of us on a regular basis if you’re on the side of conservatism. King David understood that. He’s often (if you read this blog you know) my go to guy when I need to sure up the walls around me. So when God gave me the 12 days of Psalm 62 this morning I rejoiced!!! I needed it.

Psalm 62:1-12 KJV

Possibly written when in distress, either through Saul and his armies, or by reason of the conspiracy of Absalom. Either way, he was having a bad day. I feel as if we are in such times of conspiracy. I’m not a conspiracy theorists but I am trying to be more in tune to reality. I have a tendency to go inside my house and pretend there isn’t even a world outside my door. But you can only do that so long before you run out of coffee, cookies and Coke Zero.  It’s a good thing David didn’t have those luxuries in his day, or he’d not have survived. Well, I guess he had the cookies… But for our encouragement today read the 12 verses of Psalm 62 after you sing The 12 days of Christmas according to Psalm 62, a 🎄2020 Christmas Carol🎄

I hope you sang that as I did when I wrote it. That’s good stuff right there, because every day aligns with the word of God. Now read Psalm 62.

[1] Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. [2] He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved. [3] How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence. [4] They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah. [5] My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. [6] He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. [7] In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. [8] Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah. [9] Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity. [10] Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them. [11] God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God. [12] Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.

He will bring us through as victors church! That rock He gave us on day three will cause their wall to come down eventually. I believe it. I don’t know, nor will I guess or profess the timing of it. That’s up to God. But it is as sure as the last minute of life on this earth. Amen? Amen. And that gives me great hope as I start my day. I pray it did you too!
