SPIRITUAL ROCK

Psalm 61:2-4 (NIV): “From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”

It would be great if we could live a life of complete happiness and comfort; but we know that is not possible. We are going to have our ups and downs, moments of sadness and despair, moments of stress and disillusion, moments when we are flat out exhausted, and when our heart is overwhelmed. In these moments, we should trust the Lord, the rock of salvation, for He is our strength, our comfort and our beautiful song. When our heart is faint, lean on Christ, for He is our rock and is watching over us. 1 Corinthians 10:4 reads, “For they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them and that rock was Christ.” Take comfort … if the Lord is with us, who can be against us?

Be strong in the Lord today!
