Until the soul is shut up to God alone we will forever be overruled by everything else.
From the tone in the psalm, it’s not hard to see that David is speaking from a place of distress. Still, he never asks God for help, he does not pray for aide, he asks for nothing here.
He seems to have come to the understanding that for some of us it takes a lifetime to realize, that if he has God, he has everything.
This word translated here as ’truly, only, alone’ is used five times in this psalm. It’s a strong emphasis on David’s earnestness to God. It’s a word to underline and declare ever so often, and especially in those days when we are tempted to run after people or things for strength, stability and our salvation. David knows that nothing, absolutely nothing can be the all-sufficient one, Only God. Truly him alone.
Is God your alone rock and refuge?
