And who is a Rock, except our God?

Wednesday, July 13, 2016
2 Samuel 22: 32-33 For who is God, but the Lord? And who is a rock, except our God? This God is my strong refuge and has made my way blameless.

King David refers frequently to his LORD as his Rock.  What does the Lord want us to understand about Him being described as a Rock?  Our God is unchanging, constant, strong, firm, powerful, present, a solid reality, an underlying powerful foundation, and unshakable. As Robert Murray M'Cheyne said "The sea ebbs and flows, but the rock remains unmoved."  The last words of Jesus in His great Sermon on the Mount calls for us to build our house on the Rock, Christ Jesus.  Let us rest on the eternal Rock, Jesus Christ.  We worship our LORD who will not be moved and Who gives us stability in a world that ebbs and flows.

Father, give us a greater understanding of You as our Rock.  Give us strengthened faith and trust as we understand You as our powerful, unshakable, constant and unchanging LORD.  We call upon You now and ask that You will enter the areas of our lives that we have built upon the sands of our own efforts and replace that sand with You as our established eternal Rock.  Let our faith not be shaken.  In Jesus name, the Rock that saves, Amen.
