The Rock of my Salvation!
The Lordlives! Blessed be my Rock!
Let God be exalted, the Rock of my salvation! - >2 Samuel 22:47
In 2 Samuel, and throughout the Psalms, David often called the LORD his Rock. His life was built on knowing God and loving Him with all his heart, strength and soul. David had the evidence of God’s divine intervention in his life. He had years and years of answered prayers and he could not help but to sing out: The LORD lives!
He blessed the LORD for being his solid foundation. He stood on his Rock, throughout his life. David lifted God’s name on high; He was to receive all the glory; His fame was to spread among the nations. God was an immovable, steadfast Rock to David––who blessed him with His salvation.
Our lives need to be built on nothing less than the foundation of knowing God and loving Him with all that is within us. In Deuteronomy 6:5, God’s people were told: You shall love the Lordyour God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.At this moment, how does your life match up to that high standard?
Many people build their lives on the temporary foundations: money, materialism, relationships, entertainment or other personal interests. But it is wise to build our lives on Jesus; the Rock of our salvation. Jesus told His disciples and the people who gathered to hear a parable in Matthew 7:24-27. Jesus paralleled the person who listened to God’s Word and put it into practice to a wise man who built his house on the rock. When the storms came it did not fall. Why?… it was founded on the rock.
Examine the foundation of your life; is it founded on sand or the Rock?
Trust in the LORD forever, For in GOD the LORD,
we have an everlasting Rock.
