Yahweh Alone!


Yesterday I was reading through the Psalms and seemed drawn to Psalm 62:

My soul waits calmly for Elohim alone.
    My salvation comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my savior—my stronghold.
    I cannot be severely shaken . . .
Wait calmly for Elohim alone, my soul,
    because my hope comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my savior — my stronghold.
    I cannot be shaken (Psalm 62:1-2; 5-6)

What seemed significant is that here is one very important word that occurs four times in just those few verses. I am of course referring to the word, “alone.” And, if you read the rest of the Psalm, you will see the same thing being said:

My soul waits calmly for Elohim alone.
He alone is my rock and my savior.
Wait calmly for Elohim alone
He alone is my rock and my savior.

Hey, that is the most important thing we must understand! The ultimate source of salvation and hope is Yahweh Himself! Not Allah; not Buddha; not your zodiac; not the headlines on the day’s news — it’s not even your opinion or how you feel about it. The prophet Isaiah cried out, “Yahweh has become my salvation” (Isaiah 12:2). You won’t find your salvation in religion, even in a creed or a doctrine, or in church membership or how many Bible Studies you attend. Yahweh, Himself, through the sacrifice of His Son Yeshua, is the only source of salvation and it is essential for you to understand that!

Each one of us comes to a time in our lives, to a place where we use that word “alone”; where we say, “Yahweh alone is my hope, my rock, my fortress, and the source of my salvation.” And, when you are able to finally say that, it will become true in your experience.
