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

Who is a rock, except our God? 2 Samuel 22:31-32

31 As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him. 32 “For who is God, except the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God?”

2 Samuel 22:31-32 (NKJV)

31 What a God! His road stretches straight and smooth. Every God-direction is road-tested. Everyone who runs toward him Makes it. 32 Is there any god like God? Are we not at bedrock?

2 Samuel 22:31-32 (MSG)

After the Lord delivered David from his enemies and Saul, he wrote this song/psalm. David depended on the Lord, believed in His promises, turned to Him in prayer, and followed His way. The Lord protected and shielded David, keeping him safe. In this song, David acknowledges that his achievements all came from God. What a God! His way is perfect; there is none like Him.
This chapter in 2 Samuel is known as; David’s Psalm of Thanksgiving, Davids’s Psalm of Deliverance, and David’s Psalm of Deliverance and Manifold Blessings. The verses are repeated with little variation again in Psalm 18.
Verse 32 sums up the power and greatness of the Lord; For who is God, except the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God? Yes, the Lord is our rock, strong, steadfast, and our safe refuge.

Is the Lord your rock? Do you lean on Him during times of trouble like David did?

Prayer; Our Lord, our guide and protector, you are our strength and our shield. We thank Your direction and Your perfect way. Teach us to rely on You and turn to You during times of trouble. Lord, You are our God, our hope, our rock. Like the beautiful iris is nestled by rock and reaching toward the sky, let us lean on You, our rock, and reach upward toward You. In Jesus’ holy and loving name. Amen

All Things Are Possible With God: Mark 10:26-27

26They were even more astonished and said to one another, “Who then can be saved?
27Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”

Mark 10:26-27 (NIV)

In Mark 10:17, a man runs up to Jesus. “Good teacher,” he asks, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” Jesus tells him to keep the commandments, and the man replies I have kept them since youth. Then:


21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” He said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 22 At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad because he had great wealth. 23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!”

Mark 10:21-23

The disciples were astonished, saying. Who then can be saved?


27 Jesus looked at them (the disciples) and said, “With man, this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”

The inner weakness of the rich man was his wealth; his desire for comfort and prosperity kept him from following Jesus. The man put his trust and priority in his status quo rather than in God.

We cannot save ourselves, but God can. God can change a rich person’s heart. He can change anyone’s heart. He reached out to Zacchaeus, the tax collector, and changed his life focus and his heart. Wealth, pride, and self-importance make it difficult for people to rely on God, but when we trust in God and sincerely love, Him; all things are possible with God through His saving grace.


26 Jesus looked hard at them and said, “No chance at all if you think you can pull it off yourself. Every chance in the world if you trust God to do it.”

Matthew 19:26 (MSG)

All things are possible with God. His saving grace is available to all who seek it. Is your heart delight riches, or self-satisfaction, or God?

Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, help us to find our treasure in You. Teach us to seek You always instead of worldly goods. Lord, help us to trust and rely on you rather than ourselves. Open our hearts and eyes to see that all things are possible with God. Like the calibrachoa flowers are gathered together facing upward, help us gather together and lift our face upward reflecting Your; amazing, love. In Jesus holy name. Amen

My Help: Psalm 121: 1-2

1I lift up my eyes to the mountains—

where does my help come from?

2My help comes from the Lord,

the Maker of heaven and earth.

Psalm 121: 1-2 (NIV)

This psalm is considered a song of ascent used by pilgrims traveling upward through the hills to Jerusalem. It also is a blessing for travelers leaving on a journey. Verse one is a poetic question, where does my help come from? The second verse is the answer; “My help comes from the Lord.” Yes, our help comes from the Lord; if we rely on Him, He will watch over us, and He will protect us. As verse 3 states: “He will not let your foot slip – he who watches over you will not slumber;” The Lord is the creator of heaven and earth, He is mighty, vigilant, He will watch over us, He will help us. When we face trouble, God will protect us, and He is with us, His light illuminating the darkness.

God is waiting for you to call out to Him. When you face trouble, do you reach out to God for help?

Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your love, protection, and guidance. You are our hope, our salvation, and our help in time of need. Lord, teach us to turn toward You and rely on Your great power. Let us proclaim that our help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Like the open and vibrant weigela blossoms, let us be open to God’s love and His power and be vibrant in our faith. For our help comes from the Lord. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen
