I read a devotion that was titled “Standing Firm is not the same as Standing Still”. The point of the devotional was that standing firm requires action, not being immobilized and doing nothing. As I read Psalm 62:1, I thought about how waiting in silence is not the same as doing nothing or just remaining quiet. What actions took place throughout the remaining Psalm to show us that in our waiting there are things to do? I will point to just a few actions that I saw. Clinging (v2), hoping (v5), resting (vs7), trusting (v8), pleading (vs8), searching your heart (vs10), and knowing who your God is (vs11, 12).
There is much to be doing while you are silent and waiting. And while you are waiting in silence and taking these actions listed above, you will stand firm!
