Psalm 62:5 My soul, wait you only upon God; for my expectation is from Him.

God is our help. It’s not the government, law makers, fundraisers, or even the church benevolence fund. It’s God. Our hope, expectation, and confidence should be in Him. God can use one of these avenues to bless our lives, but our reliance should be on Him.

Problems occur when we rely on a certain person or entity to provide a need only God can provide. Marriages end quickly because a person is disappointed that their spouse couldn’t provide fulfillment. People become angry with the government and politicians because they didn’t do what they promised. People even degrade churches because they didn’t provide something for them or the community. It’s not up to our spouse, the government, or a church to provide a need or desire. Our dependence should be totally on God.

Wait, hope, and totally rely on God.
