“For God alone my soul waits in silence and quietly submits to Him, For my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation; My fortress and my defense, I will not be shaken or discouraged.” (Psalms 62:5-6, Amplified Bible)
Waiting in silence may seem like a struggle when we are feeling shaken or discouraged. It may seem like we need to do something, say something—scream, cry, blame, go on the defensive, or withdraw into self-pity and fear.
But our soul is ready to submit to the healing presence. Your deepest heart, the true you, yearns to release the troubles and agitation, and to allow God to show His plan, to demonstrate His Love. Right where you are. In the silence.
We can be still and ready. We can let that quietness with God be a rock of steadiness to stand upon and a blanket of comfort to nestle into. God has the answers that our human mind can’t figure out and that the advice of others can’t truly supply.
Our reliable hope is in God, and as we let ourselves quietly and humbly submit to His kindness, wisdom, and protection, we feel encouraged, strengthened, peaceful, and safe.
