Psalm 62:8 says, “Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah” (NKJV)
How often did David encourage the people to trust God? Sometimes? Every once in a while? When they had no other choice? What about at all times?
He encouraged them to pour out their heart to God. That’s not something that we can trust just anyone with! Ever poured your heart out to someone only to have them soak it all up and pour it back out to someone else? God won’t do that.
David encouraged those who are looking for a refuge to stop looking, to start trusting, to start hoping and to start resting in the God of their salvation (vs. 1-2, 6-7).
What other verses of encouragement (personal or congregational) from the Old Testament or the New Testament can you think of? Feel free to share what you think of.
