Check This Out for Yourself — Draw Your Own Conclusions

Check out these six verses from Psalm 62.  Ask yourself these questions as you read.

1)  What is the point of waiting quietly before God?  Why do it?  What does it look like?

2)  What does the Psalmist say come from God?

3)  What word pictures does the Psalmist use to describe God?

4)  When we trust God alone as our rock, fortress, refuge, etc., what is the result?

5)  Note the word “where” in verses 2, 5, and 7.  What makes this word important in this context?  What does it imply about our position in God?

6)  Note the Psalmist’s transition from “my” refuge to “our” refuge in verse 8.  What makes that transition significant?

7)  How will you practically make God alone your victory, hope, refuge, salvation, fortress, etc. on a daily basis?  What concrete, specific actions will you take to make this abstract idea a reality for you?

Psalm 62

1  I will wait quietly before God, (why?) for my victory comes from him.

2  He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken.

5  Let all that I am wait quietly before God, (why?) for my hope is in him.

6  He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken.

7  My victory and honor come from God alone.  He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me.

8  O my people, trust in him at all times.  Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge!
