My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
Psalm 62:5-7 (KJV)
Though it can be tempting to look to people or to circumstances and conditions lining up in a certain way, are called to place all our faith, trust and reliance in God. May we live each day in a way where all our expectation is in the goodness and the faithfulness of our God, and may we rest assured that we will not be disappointed. While God will often work through other people, and while He certainly arranges circumstances and conditions in our favor, let us remember always that He is the rock of our salvation and our strength.
