Psalm 61-62, 65; Proverbs 3

You are a stronger refuge than myself, so let me hide in You.
Extend the king's life and reign.

I wait for God while men attack me.
Only God is trustworthy, not money or pressure tactics or power.
Only God is powerful, loving and just, to save me.

You deserve praise!  You hear prayer, forgive sins, establish the earth, still storms, water the fields, and make crops and flocks abound.
We are satisfied by You.

Prov 3
Trust God's wisdom and discipline, not your own.  It'll bring you honor and success, peace and protection.
Don't be contentious or withhold good when you can give good.  These bring disgrace.

How this is about Jesus
Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever - He is a stronger fortress than we are - 61.
Jesus is trustworthy and strong to save - 62
At God's right hand are pleasures (Ps 16:11).  It just so happens that's where Jesus is - He satisfies! - 65.
In the end, disciples of Christ will know honor, riches, protection and life, not disgrace or shame.

Psalm 65:3-4
"            3       When iniquities prevail against me, you atone for our transgressions. 
            4       Blessed is the one you choose and bring near, to dwell in your courts! 
                  We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house, the holiness of your temple!"
