more than just good words [+] Tuesday E-Devotion

In my reading this morning, I came across a passage you have to read with me.  Here it is:

Psalm 62 (The Message)

God, the one and only— I'll wait as long as he says.  Everything I need comes from him, so why not?  He's solid rock under my feet, breathing room for my soul, An impregnable castle: I'm set for life... My help and glory are in God —granite-strength and safe-harbor-God— So trust him absolutely, people; lay your lives on the line for him.  God is a safe place to be... God said this once and for all; how many times Have I heard it repeated? "Strength comes Straight from God."  Love to you, Lord God!  You pay a fair wage for a good day's work!

That's good.  It doesn't get much better.  Often, real often we need words from God that end up being much more than just good words.  These are words to live by.  Lets hang on to them.  Think about them a little longer.  Make them reality for us.  Think hard and hold tight:

He is --- God, the one and only

Fact about God ---  Everything I need comes from him --- So trust him absolutely, people; lay your lives on the line for him. --- My help and glory are in God

Need to be strong?  Find it from Him --- He's solid rock under my feet --- breathing room for my soul --- An impregnable castle: I'm set for life --- granite-strength and safe-harbor-God --- Strength comes Straight from God.

My response (nothing better than this) --- Love to you, Lord God! 

Chew on that for a while.  God is good...all the time.  More than just good words from God today!
