My big jobs of the day were to pay bills and do a conference call with my sons teachers. These have to be among my least favorite things! By the time the call was over, I just put my head down and thought, “I can’t do another thing without worshipping God!” So, I went to Pandora.com. (I am so thankful for technology!) and clicked on my Jason Upton channel. The first song was Psalm 62 by Shane and Shane. It’s all about resting on Him. I felt my whole being sigh in relief to be in His arm again.
I want to always have a low tolerance for doing “stuff” (even the good stuff) and a high need for Him. God likes it when we realize our extreme neediness and fall into His arms often. If we are able to go very far without really connecting to God, we are likely to starve ourselves without even realizing it.
To be in His presence is to be filled with true life that living in this world drains from us. So today stop and remember to breathe in His life giving love. Everything else is like exhaling.
5My soul, wait only upon God and silently submit to Him; for my hope and expectation are from Him.
6He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be moved.
7With God rests my salvation and my glory; He is my Rock of unyielding strength and impenetrable hardness, and my refuge is in God!
8Trust in, lean on, rely on, and have confidence in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is a refuge for us (a fortress and a high tower). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
