I may have told you before. I like rocks. They are beautiful. I like that no one has to change them to make them beautiful either. They just are. The world tries to make everything better, but rocks do not need improving. Rocks are hard, solid, organic, made by God.
Of all the verses about rocks, here is one of my favorites…
Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me. Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me. Keep me free from the trap that is set for me, for you are my refuge. Psalm 31:2-4 NIV
In many of his psalms, David frequently refers to God as His Rock. Psalm 31:2-4 made me chuckle the first time I really tried to get what David was saying in the verses. (See above) How I read these verses…
Turn to me and hear my pleas for help because I need you to be my rock, my rock that listens. And I need you to be a fort made of rock too, because I need saving. And, because you are that to me, please lead me while you are at it and oh yeah, guide me too. Another thing, do not let me get trapped . After all, You are my refuge.
I love those verses! Here are some take-a ways..
1. David talks to God like God is everything to him! David loves his Mighty Rock:)
2. David asked His God, his rock to listen. David’s Rock has ears:)
3. God is solid like a rock fort. It’s a great place to hide! Let’s hide in God! He has our backs:)
4. God is pure, through and through, like a rock. He is pure in all of His qualities. He never changes.
Dear God, Thank You for being strong, unchanging and pure and everything else we need. You are our favorite Rock. We love You! Thank You for Your Word that sets our hearts to rest on all that is true and everlasting. That gives us peace. Amen
Love and prayers to you all. Have a great weekend!
