Daily Devotional

by Larry Stockstill

Faith is trust, and trust is faith. When a deposit is placed in a trust account, we can be confident that it is safe. Do we trust God like that? It is easy to trust Him when we are in control, but what about when the situation moves outside our control? Can we trust Him at all times? David went through perilous times, but in each situation he would pour out his heart to God (v. 8) as his chief Confidant and Refuge.

Everyone trusts someone or something, and with many, it is their money. "Don't try to get rich by extortion or robbery. And if your wealth increases, don't make it the center of your life" (Psalm 62:10). Paul told Timothy to "tell those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which will soon be gone. But their trust should be in the living God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment" (1 Timothy 6:17).

We must unplug our trust from anything in this world: our money, the promises of others, even ourselves. We must then transfer our total trust to God and relax, knowing that our deposit is safe!

Psalm 62:1-12

Psalm 62In Hebrew texts 62:1-12 is numbered 62:2-13.

For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of David.

Truly my soul finds restS Ps 5:3 in God;ver 5

my salvation comes from him.

Truly he is my rockPs 18:31; 89:26 and my salvation;S Ex 15:2

he is my fortress,S Ps 59:9 I will never be shaken.S Job 29:18

How long will you assault me?

Would all of you throw me down—

this leaning wall,Isa 30:13 this tottering fence?

Surely they intend to topple me

from my lofty place;

they take delight in lies.

With their mouths they bless,

but in their hearts they curse.The Hebrew has Selah (a word of uncertain meaning) here and at the end of verse 8.Ps 28:3; 55:21

Yes, my soul, find rest in God;ver 1

my hope comes from him.

Truly he is my rock and my salvation;

he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

My salvation and my honor depend on GodOr / God Most High is my salvation and my honor;

he is my mighty rock, my refuge.S Ps 61:3

Trust in him at all times, you people;Ps 37:5; Isa 26:4

pour out your hearts to him,1Sa 1:15; Ps 42:4; Mt 26:36-46

for God is our refuge.

Surely the lowbornPs 49:2 are but a breath,S Job 7:7

the highborn are but a lie.

If weighed on a balance,Isa 40:15 they are nothing;

together they are only a breath.

10 Do not trust in extortionS Ps 12:5; 1Ti 6:17

or put vain hope in stolen goods;Isa 61:8; Eze 22:29; Na 3:1

though your riches increase,

do not set your heart on them.S Job 31:25; Mt 19:23-24; 1Ti 6:6-10

11 One thing God has spoken,

two things I have heard:

“Power belongs to you, God,S 1Ch 29:11; Rev 19:1

12 and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”;Ps 86:5; 103:8; 130:7

and, “You reward everyone

according to what they have done.”S Job 21:31; Ps 28:4; S Mt 16:27; Ro 2:6*; 1Co 3:8; Col 3:25

Psalm 62

For Jeduthun, the choir director: A psalm of David.

I wait quietly before God,

for my victory comes from him.

He alone is my rock and my salvation,

my fortress where I will never be shaken.

So many enemies against one man—

all of them trying to kill me.

To them I’m just a broken-down wall

or a tottering fence.

They plan to topple me from my high position.

They delight in telling lies about me.

They praise me to my face

but curse me in their hearts. Interlude

Let all that I am wait quietly before God,

for my hope is in him.

He alone is my rock and my salvation,

my fortress where I will not be shaken.

My victory and honor come from God alone.

He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me.

O my people, trust in him at all times.

Pour out your heart to him,

for God is our refuge. Interlude

Common people are as worthless as a puff of wind,

and the powerful are not what they appear to be.

If you weigh them on the scales,

together they are lighter than a breath of air.

10 Don’t make your living by extortion

or put your hope in stealing.

And if your wealth increases,

don’t make it the center of your life.

11 God has spoken plainly,

and I have heard it many times:

Power, O God, belongs to you;

12 unfailing love, O Lord, is yours.

Surely you repay all people

according to what they have done.

62 Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.

He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.

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.

They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.

My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.

He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.

In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

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.

Proverbs 11:18-19

18 A wicked person earns deceptive wages,

but the one who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward.S Ex 1:20; S Job 4:8; Hos 10:12-13

19 Truly the righteous attain life,S Dt 30:15; S Pr 10:2

but whoever pursues evil finds death.1Sa 2:6; Ps 89:48; Pr 1:18-19; Ecc 7:2; Jer 43:11

18 Evil people get rich for the moment,

but the reward of the godly will last.

19 Godly people find life;

evil people find death.

18 The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.

19 As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death.
