January 26: I Shall Not Be Shaken

January 26: Psalm 62:5-12

"For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. On God rests my deliverance and my honor; my mighty rock, my refuge is in God." 

When life is challenging, sometimes it can feel like we're barely hanging on and that at any moment, it could all fall apart. The Psalmists wrote during times that were remarkably difficult. And yet they demonstrate an amazing confidence in the unchanging stability of God. 

No matter what we may be going through, and no matter how difficult things get, God remains an unshakable fortress and refuge. While knowing that might not make our problems going away, prayer to our infinitely strong and protective God can ease our burden and make us feel secure. Have we come to God in prayer for stability and solace?
