God Alone [May 16] Greg Burlile
Series: David’s Prayer Journal
Title: God Alone - Psalm 62
Psalm 62 ESV
1 For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.
3 How long will all of you attack a man
to batter him,
like a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
4 They only plan to thrust him down from his high position.
They take pleasure in falsehood.
They bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse. Selah

5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7 On God rests my salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah

9 Those of low estate are but a breath;
those of high estate are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
they are together lighter than a breath.
10 Put no trust in extortion;
set no vain hopes on robbery;
if riches increase, set not your heart on them.
11 Once God has spoken;
twice have I heard this:
that power belongs to God,
12 and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love.
For you will render to a man
according to his work.
*** DAVID’s TROUBLES 62:3-4
- what was his situation?
3 How long will all of you attack a man
to batter him,
like a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
4 They only plan to thrust him down from his high position.
They take pleasure in falsehood.
They bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse.
slander; possible attempt to overthrow him as king;
possibly He was in a weakened and vulnerable state;

*** DAVID’s MESSAGE TO US 62:1-2, 5-6
“God Alone” or “God only” mentioned 4 times in verse 1-2, 5-6
1 For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.

5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.

**** Jeremiah 17:7 ESV emphasizes this
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.

[Trust in God Himself, not in getting your way, not in an outcome]
**** The BLESSINGS OF TRUSTING IN GOD ALONE

1: My Life Will Have a Firm Foundation
62:5-7 ESV
5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7 On God rests my salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
notice “rock”, “fortress”, “refuge”, “I shall not be shaken”
All indications of stability and not wavering


Matthew 7:24-27 ESV
24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.
26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.
27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”

Ephesians 4:11-14 ESV
11 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers,
12 to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ,
13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ,
14 so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.

2: Those Around Me are Encouraged and Challenged to do the Same
Psalm 62:8
8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us.
3: My Prayer Life is Deepened While I’m Waiting

Psalm 62:8
8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us.
