Psalm 62 is known as “The Only Psalm”. Obviously, it is not the only psalm that exists. It is called the Only Psalm because the word "only" occurs so frequently throughout its text. We read that word six times in its twelve verses.
Psalm 62 is a very simple hymn about dependence upon God. While some parts of the Bible can be very complex, this Psalm is just plain and simple in its picture of God.
"You, only, are my Rock and my Salvation".
This psalm was written when David reached the lowest point in his life. His kingdom was crumbling before his very eyes. His son, Absalom, had gathered an army and was entering the city to overthrow his own father.
David was forced to flee through the back gate. As he fled the city, barefoot and with his head covered in shame, these words came to him as a reminder of who God is and how He loves His people. Even when times are depressing and miserable He is with us and for us.
"My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him."
David placed complete and total trust in God, and God alone, even while fleeing from his own throne.
David would be restored to that throne. His kingdom would be safe again. But, what a tremendous lesson for us all. Even when life throws its most brutal and discouraging moments at us, we can trust in God and know that He is in control!
"On God my salvation and my glory rest; the rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us."
God is faithful and knows when we are in trouble. He has a plan for us. Trust His plan.
