God is my _______.

today's reading.
Psalm 62:1-12    For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation...
Psalms 62:1

think about it.
What is David looking for from God and why (62:1-7)? What happens to the other people or things we often put our trust in (62:9-10)? What is the "bottom line" (62:11-12)? The words "alone" and "only" are used frequently here; what does that say to you about your trust in God?

the blog.
David tells us in Psalm 62 that his soul waits for God alone. He then goes on to describe what God means to him specifically and personally. It's quite a list: God is David's rock, his salvation, his fortress (vs. 2); his hope (vs. 5); and his mighty rock and refuge (vs. 7).

So do you see and describe God as David does here in Psalm 62? Fill in the blank below with as many descriptors that come to mind. God is my _____________. Tami W.

P.S. Our Back to the Bible Israel tour group stopped at En Gedi today. We saw many caves in the hillsides (the same hillsides where we know David and his men hid out from Saul). We also walked up to the spring at En Gedi (a waterfall) which was absolutely beautiful. We've posted a couple of my photos from En Gedi on our facebook page so you can get a glimpse as well.
