Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. 2 He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved. 3 How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence. 4 They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah. 5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. – Psalm 62:1-5
I want to encourage you this morning to train your soul to wait upon God, for He is your salvation. Not just, when you get to heaven, but here on earth. Salvation includes all of the benefits Jesus paid for on the Cross.
Everyday you need to meditate, in your soul, the benefits of the finished work of Christ. If you need a reminder, look to Psalm 103.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: 3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; 4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; 5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. 6 The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
Rehearse these benefits in your soul, daily!
