“Be Still; Fret Not” (Psalm 62: 1, ESV) by Carley Evans

“For God alone my soul waits in silence.”

“Be still,” says the Lord, “and know that I Am God.” (Psalm 46: 10)

“And your ears shall hear a Word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it,’ when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.” (Isaiah 30: 21)

“Be still before the Lord, and wait patiently for Him.” (Psalm 37: 7) “Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.” (Psalm 37: 8)

“For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from Him.” (Psalm 62: 5) “From Him comes my salvation.”

God is straightforward — He says: ‘Wait on Me; don’t fret over evil. Listen in the stillness for My voice. I will provide clear direction of My path for you. You turn right at this point, and left at that point. Be still, attentive, rapt, restrained and quiet. Your hope comes from Me. Your salvation is Mine.’
