God's will is sometimes hard. He asks us to do the right things. He calls us to endure hardship without complaining; to love awkward people; to heed the voice inside us that says, You mustn't; to take steps we'd rather not take. So we must tell our souls all day long: "Hey soul, listen up. Be silent: Do what Jesus is asking you to do."
"My soul waits in silence for God only” (Psalm 62:1 nasb). "My soul, wait in silence for God only" (62:5 nasb). The verses are similar, but different. David says something about his soul; then says something to his soul. “Waits in silence” addresses a decision, a settled state of mind. "Wait in silence” is David stirring his soul to remember that decision.
David determines to live in silence—quiet submission to God's will. This is our calling as well, the thing for which we were created. We will be at peace when we've agreed: "Not my will, but yours be done" (Luke 22:42). This is our first and highest calling when we make Him Lord and the source of our deepest pleasure. “I desire to do your will,” the psalmist said (Psalm 40:8).
We must always ask for God's help, of course, for our “hope comes from Him" (62:5). When we ask for His help He delivers it. God never asks us to do anything He will not or cannot do.

God never asks us to do anything you want or can't do today's Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Psalm 62. Truly, my soul finds rest in God. My salvation comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation. He is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
How long will you assault me with all of you throw me down this leaning wall. This tottering fence. Surely they intend to topple me from my lofty place. They take delight in lies with their mouths.
They blast but in their hearts they curse. Yes, my soul find rest in God my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation. He is my fortress, I will not be shaken my salvation and my honor depend on God. He is my mighty rock, my refuge trust in him at all times. You people pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
Surely the low born are but a breath, the highborn are but a lie if weighed on the balance. They are nothing. Together, they are only a breath do not trust and extortion were put in vain hope in stolen goods.
Though your riches increase.
Do not set your heart on them. One thing God has spoken to things I have heard power belongs to you.
God and with you Lord is unfailing love and you reward everyone according to what they have done. Let's pray dear God, help us to do what David did in the Psalm and fully trust in you. We may not always understand your will, but we ask for help to submit to it. Teach us to trust your good and faithful character and give us submissive hearts. Thank you Lord Jesus name we pray. Amen.
