“Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved (Psalm 62:1-2).”
This statement just jumps out and grabs you. Why? Because it is made with conviction and purpose. Look at the word “Truly.” This word comes form the Hebrew word “Akne,” meaning “Nevertheless.” So David is saying, “Nevertheless what it looks like, I’m going to wait on God.”
Here we have a man that went through trial after trial, tribulation after tribulation but he had enough resolve to wait on God. Here is a man that king Saul was trying to have killed, lost his mentor and friend, lost his wife, lost his integrity and lost his dignity. But in a cave he saw the light and became the leader that he was born to become.
In Psalm 142, he resolved to quit relying on schemes and gimmicks, and promised to rely on God. Why? Because he knew that his salvation came from God. So the question is, will we have a nevertheless mentality. There comes a time that no matter the circumstance, no matter the situation, no matter the trial, will you wait on God.
Isaiah 40:31 says it best “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
So to answer the question “Will we have a nevertheless mentality?” — Yes! Why? We wait because he is always there for us.
