Psalm 62:2 He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.
When reading through the Bible it is often easy to miss some of the most important things written. We look for those big statements that God has made. We search for a paragraph or chapter that will stir our hearts. However, often the most important things written are very small.
If it had to be a phrase, I guess it would be “He only is… my salvation.” This alone is so absolutely true. He is the only one who could bring about my Salvation.
However, if I had to select what I thought were the most important words in this verse today, they would be “HE ONLY.” Not He and, not He or, not He with… just “He Only.”
Today it seems many people want to go through life with the notion that, “God and I have done this or that.” Some live as if they partially trust in God, but also, they partially in what they can do to keep themselves saved. Sadly, for many people there is one word which confuses people into believing they can lose their salvation. They are trusting in “He AND”… instead of “HE ONLY.”
If we really wanted to break it down farther, to simply the one most important word, it would have to be just “HE.” “HE” is my rock. “HE” is my salvation. “HE” is my defense. “HE and “HE ONLY” is my everything. Thank Him today because “HE IS.”
