Psalms 62

Verses 1-12

Psalms 62:0

Waiting and Trusting

1. He only (Psalms 62:1-2 )

2. Persecuted (Psalms 62:3-4 )

3. My expectation from him (Psalms 62:5-12 )

This Psalm is not difficult to interpret. It has always been food for the saints of God. Faith in God in the midst of adversity and persecution, waiting on Him, expecting salvation, deliverance and defense only from Him is beautifully expressed. Like all these Psalms this one also gives us a prophetic glimpse into the experience of the remnant of Israel. But it has its practical value for us likewise. The first verse literally rendered is, “Only unto God my soul is silence”; that is, hushed in His presence, in confident submission. To expect all from Him, nothing from man, to look away from self and magnify the Lord, is the secret of a life of rest and victory.
