Wait for God
Verse 1 – Truly my soul silently waits for God; from Him comes my salvation.
Salvation is a lot more than just being saved from hell. The Hebrew word for salvation is Yeshuwah and Yeshuwah means; deliverance, aid, victory, prosperity, health, help and our very welfare. Do you see now why everything we need is in Jesus Christ? Yeshuwah is our salvation. Why would we ever put our trust and faith in anything else?
Verse 2 – He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved.
Verse 3 – How long will you attack a man? You shall be slain, all of you, like a leaning wall and a tottering fence.
Verse 4 – They only consult to cast him down from his high position; they delight in lies; they bless with their mouth but they curse inwardly. Selah
So who is David talking about? The enemy of course. It may have been men attacking him, but we know who the real enemy is, Satan.
Jesus said in John 8 verse 44 that the devil is a murderer and has been from the beginning and there is no truth in him. He speaks only lies. He is a liar and the father of it. So when people tell you things contradictory to what God says, they are dong the devils work. Whatever Satan says may look good temporally, but it’s a lie, only to see you fail!
Verse 5 – My soul, waits silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.
Verse 6 – He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved.
Verse 7 – In God is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength, and my refuge is in God.
verse 8 Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah
Verse 9 – Surly men of low degree are a vapor, men of high degree are a lie; if they are weighed in the balances, they are altogether lighter than vapor.
Verse 10 – Do not trust in oppression, nor vainly hope in robbery; if riches increase, do not set your heart on them.
It doesn’t matter what someone steals or how much, it is not going to make them wealthy in the end.
Verse 11 – God has spoken once twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God.
Verse 12 – Also to You, O Lord, belongs mercy; for You render to each one according to his work.
David is not talking about wages as in working out of obligation. He really is talking about sowing and reaping. We sow into the kingdom of God, not out of an obligation as if it’s a chore, we do it by choice because we love Him and He first loved us.
