What a loaded statement. The full verse in found in Psalms 62:1
“My Soul waits in Silence for God only, from Him is my salvation.”
I think of the falsely accused Joseph, sitting in prison, having revealed the meaning of the dreams of the cup-bearer and the baker (for full story read Genesis 39-41). Joseph asks the chief cup-bearer to “Please remember me and do me a favor when things go well for you. Mention me to Pharaoh, so he might let me out of this place.” (Gen. 40:14)
Later in this chapter, we are told that, “Pharaoh’s chief cup-bearer, however, forgot all about Joseph, never giving him another thought.” God had to teach me this lesson in a very difficult time in my life. Like when we are children and we raise our hand when teams are being chosen, “Oh, pick me, pick me!” Or when our love is not reciprocated. I looked to other human beings to help me, “get a leg up,” and move forward into the call I thought God had for me. but no one answered the call. No one remembered me. No one helped me. But guess what? They weren’t supposed to. That was part of God’s plan, it still is part of God’s plan. Genesis 41:1 reveals this, “Two full years later, Pharaoh dreamed…” Joseph was left in prison, forgotten by the man he helped for two more years. Only when Pharaoh needed someone to interpret his dream did the chief cup-bearer remember Joseph and tell Pharaoh about him.
I see how this was God’s design. Joseph needed to know that only God was his salvation. he needed to live Psalm 62:1 “My Soul wait in silence for God only, from Him only is My Salvation.”
I must wait there too. If God has a work for me to do, then He will bring it to pass in His good time. And His timing is always good, always right, always best. I am so at peace with this now. Though I had to lose much, it was only “stuff.” Now I count it all rubbish for the the surpassing glory of knowing Christ Jesus My Lord. Things that were just so beautiful to think about, are now truths that I’ve actually lived out. And as I look back over those footprints, the ones of following God through the hard times, I realized I have been following Him all along, and He never forgot about me. And He never will. He never forgets you either.
Take comfort in that!
