Sermon: “Wait on the Lord”, Psalm 62 – Dr Douglas Kelly

April 7, 2010

My Soul Waits for God Alone

62:1 For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation.
2 He only 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.

He referenced this text from The Breastplate St. Patrick:

1.	Christ beside me, Christ before me,
	Christ behind me King of my heart;
	Christ within me, Christ below me,
	Christ above me never to part. 

2.	Christ on my right hand, Christ on my left hand,
	Christ all around me shield in strife;
	Christ in my sleeping, Christ in my sitting,
	Christ in my rising light of my life.

3.	Christ beside me, Christ before me,
	Christ behind me King of my heart;
	Christ within me, Christ below me,
	Christ above me never to part.
