My Hope: Psalm 62:5-6

5Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.
6Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

Psalm 62:5-6 (NIV)

Psalm 62 is a psalm of David. It is a psalm of confidence, of trust in God. David has bitter enemies, but he has confidence God could and would deliver him. When our souls find rest in God, we give up our worldly concerns and trust God.
Where does our hope come from; our hope comes from God. He is our rock, our salvation. Meditation and prayer strengthen faith and build a strong foundation in the Lord. Like David, we can learn not to be overcome by worries but to stand strong in faith unshaken.

When worldly issues are overwhelming, is God your rock and your hope?

Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, You are our rock, salvation, and our hope. Thanks for being our strong foundation and our shelter during life storms. Teach us to let go of our worldly concerns and put our trust in You. Like the full rose blossoms make a lovely garden, let us be full of hope and reflect Your love. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen

I believe in the power of prayer. If you need prayer, I would be glad to pray for you. Leave a comment or message me on the contact page.  🌺

I pray for the Ukrainian people, I pray for peace, and I pray for the end of war.

  1. Oh may we not be overcome and let Christ be our rock in these times. Looking at the news sure can overwhelm but we need to focus on the Lord and on doing good where we can, it helps us not feel discouraged.
    Thank you Jeanne, a needed reminder.

  3. I just talk to my friend whose daughter, Hope who is living in sin, stop taking care of her daughter, drinking all the time. Please pray she turn from her sin. I couldn’t help but think of the bigger picture today of Ukraine and then hearing of my friends daughter, the smaller picture but as important to pray for as Ukraine. He is the Rock for the small and big picture we live in. Blessings.

  4. I am thankful we can place our hope and confidence in the Lord. Every worry we can cast upon Him. I don’t know what I would do if I could not pour my heart out to God in prayer. Thanks Jeanne ❀️
