strength and hope belong to God

Psalm 62:11-12 (JDV)

Psalm 62:11 God has spoken once; I have heard this twice: strength belongs to God,
Psalm 62:12 and covenant faithfulness belongs to you, Lord because you repay each according to his works.

strength and hope belong to God

Jesus has been singing this psalm and it had reminded him that if you put both the common person and the important person on a reality scale, the combined total weight would be less than a breath. So, what matters?

It isn’t your strength, because strength belongs to God. If you have it, it is because God has given it to you, and he can take it away.

God is being faithful to his own covenant of grace. You can have rest in the middle of a troubled life because of his covenant faithfulness. You can look forward to a reward at the restoration of all things because God has promised that reward.

Jesus struggled with many things in his life, but he was able to find peace by meditating of psalms like this, which reminded him that his present strength and future hope were in God’s hands.

Thank you Lord, that our strength and hope belong to you.
