Evening Reflection: Love’s Celebration!

Passion Translation Psalm 62:1-8

“Unshakeable Faith”

I stand silently to listen for the one I love,

waiting as long as it takes for the Lord to rescue me.

For god alone has become my Savior

He alone is my safe place;

His wrap-around presence always protects me.

For he is my Champion Defender;

there’s no risk of failure with God!

So why would I let worry paralyze me,

even when troubles multiply around me?

But look at these who want me dead,

shouting their vicious threats at me!

The moment they discover my weakness

they all begin plotting to take me down.

Liars, hypocrites, with nothing good to say.

All of their energies are spent

on moving me from this exalted place.

Pause in his presence

I am standing in absolute stillness, silent before the One I love,

waiting as long as it takes for him to rescue me.

Only God is my Savior, and he will not fail me.

For he alone is my Safe Place.

His wrap-around presence always protects me

as my Champion Defender.

There’s no risk of failure with God!

So why would I let worry paralyze me

even when troubles multiply around me?

God’s glory is all around me!

His wrap-around presence is all I need,

for the Lord is my Savior, my Hero, and my life-giving strength.

Join me, everyone! Trust only in God every moment!

Tell him all your troubles and pour out your heart-longings to him.

Believe me when I tell you—he will help you!

Selah

Verse 11-12

God said to me once and for all,

“All strength and power you need flows from me!”

And again I heard it clearly said,

“All the love you need is found in me!”

And the Almighty said,

“The greater your passion for more,

the greater reward I will give you!”

                                   love me
