Earthquake Country | Psalm 62

Suzanne Faith

I live out in California. Earthquake country. A lot of people in the midwest and east coast are frightened of them, for good reasons, but I’ve lived in many different parts of the world and have found there’s always something to be afraid of.

However, certain words in Scripture resonate to me as unique to California, like this verse:

“My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.”

I was curious about that word “shaken” so I looked it up in my Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance. 

The Hebrew word for “shaken” is mot. It means to slip, fall, totter, stagger, be toppled, to be caused to move, uprooted, quaking, to be continually shaking.

Sounds like the psalmist was experiencing an earthquake, doesn’t it? Or maybe it was an emotional earthquake–something we all experience now and then. How wonderful to ponder these words: “He is my fortress, I will never be shaken.”

Memory verse for the week:

“My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken” (Psalm 62:1-2, NIV).
