Our Rock

Leave a comment

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psalm 18:

Our Rock 2

Rock- a large mass of stone forming a hill, cliff, promontory, or the like. Mineral matter of variable composition, consolidated or unconsolidated, assembled in masses or considerable quantities in nature, as by the action of heat or water. A particular kind of such matter: stone in the mass.

As I read scripture after scripture this morning on “rock” and its place in scripture, it made me think. My mental picture when I say rock are those that I see around in my environment.

Out on the parking lot there are a lot of “rocks”. They are small and sometimes a nuisance. When tilling a plot of land for gardening, I have often found “rocks” that have to be picked up and tossed aside as to make room for the plants.

Then I got to thinking about when we kayaked and the rocks in which we pulled up to…… They were solid and stable and they could not be picked up and thrown aside.

During these biblical times, rocks were the materials in which structures were made. Rocks were places of refuge for those out in the elements.

Psalms 92:15 “To declare that the LORD is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.”

Psalms 62_7 “On God my salvation and my-2

There are dozens of scriptures that point to Him as our Rock. And in Christ, who became our cornerstone…For it stands in Scripture: ‘“Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, cornerstone chosen and precious,’and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.’” 1 Peter 2:6

The cornerstone was the main stone used in the building structure that provided stability and strength.

So is it any wonder that our God is our rock? I am so grateful for that today.

I think next time we kayak and take a break on a rock…I will look at it a bit differently.

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 56 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 40 years, married 37 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. We have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. It wasn't always easy, and I like sharing some insights from those "mommy" and "teaching" years. I also want to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
