Mother’s Day

Psalms 62:5-8

Hope! (our HELP!)

If we lose you, we lose the family.

  • You are its heart and soul
  1. Find rest in God alone (vs. 5)
  • To be silent

This is a complete surrender of who you are.

  • And who you are must be established in God alone

“Find your rest in God alone”

  • Elohim
    • One who guides and cares for you
    • Psalms 23
      • “Your rod and your staff they comfort me”

Your soul is in need of rest.

  • Strength comes from our soul
  • A soul at rest will be rejuvenated, energized and at peace with itself.

David wrote: “My hope comes from him”

  1. Where does your hope come from?
  2. God is your rock, salvation, and fortress. You will not be shaken (vs. 6)

Having a strong foundation to stand upon will bring you health and deliverance.

“My fortress”

  • An inaccessible place
  • Altitude
  • A place of defense

It is a place that you can go to where you will find the safety of God’s love and peace.

  1. “Not shaken”
  • It is unmovable
  • Unbending
  1. (vs. 7) Your honor depends on God.

God Most High is your salvation and your honor.

Observe what the Psalmist is saying here.

  • My expectation
  • My rock
  • My salvation
  • My glory
  • My strength
  • My refuge
  1. Might Rock

– of my strength

– strong 

It is knowing God well enough that you feel confident in your relationship with him.

  1. (vs. 8) Trust in him

–  Pour out your heart to him

Why? God is your refuge.

“At all times.”

  • There is not a moment or a second in which the Lord is not to be trusted
  • He is to be trusted in difficult times
    • Good times
    • Uncertain times
    • Overwhelming times
  • In our most deep, heartfelt, and unbelievable times
  • God can be trusted to be there with you

Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all of your heart.”

Verse 8 says to “Pour out your heart to him”

  • The desires of your heart
  • Complaints of your soul
  • To plead your case before the LORD

Psalms 102:1-2 NIV Hear my prayer, Lord; let my cry for help come to you.
Do not hide your face from me when I am in distress. Turn your ear to me;
   when I call, answer me quickly.

Psalms 142:1-2 NIV I cry aloud to the Lord; I lift up my voice to the Lord for mercy. I pour out before him my complaint; before him I tell my trouble.

The Psalmist closes with, “For God is our refuge”

  • A place of support and trust
  • A home where you feel welcomed and safe

Conclusion

No matter what the world may think about God, for you, he is a place where you can find comfort, strength, encouragement, and hope.

It is not easy to be a mom today.

It is perhaps one of the most difficult, influential, emotional, time-consuming jobs on the planet.

For all that you go through on a daily basis, may you find God to be your refuge and strength.
