“My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.” ~Psalm 62:5~
We all have difficulties and trials in our life. Apparently just because we are Believers in Jesus Christ doesn’t mean that we are exempt from the troubles of this world. We all want a secure place to wait upon God.
The Psalmist talks about his troubles and enemies throughout almost each Psalm. That is what draws me to read a Psalm almost every day. I can relate with David (who wrote many of the Psalms) and I am encouraged by how he constantly looks to God instead of staying discouraged from the circumstances in his life.
When you were growing up, did you find that your mom and dad were always there when you hurt yourself or ran into problems? Whatever was happening, I was always comforted by my parents. It seems like they have always been there and I cannot even imagine them being gone from this earth.
As we get older, we come to the realization that our parents can’t fix every problem but it is always so secure knowing they are there.
Experiencing the loss of our parents is a reminder of how we are to find our security in God alone. He is the only refuge you can totally count on in this world.
“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. “~Psalm 91:1,2~

Reflect: When has your family made you feel especially secure or insecure? Have you created security for yourself in some way? How does God’s promise of security differ from the security we find in parents, husband, or friends?
