As creatures, we all need an object of trust, one on whom we can lean, one in whom we can confide, one to whom we may look for defense and safety.

Every creature has some rocksome object of dependence and trust. For without this, there would be recklessness or despair.

Some make a ‘rock’ of their wealth, some of their talents, some of their station, some of their friends, some of their good deeds, some of their religious observances, some of their name or fame.

But the Christian’s rock is his God–that is, God in Christ. Yes, Jesus is the foundation of his hopes, the source of his strength, the anchor of his safety, and the fountain that supplies him!

In Christ, his Rock, he finds honey. And this Rock pours out rivers of oil for him,

“He nourished him with honey from the Rock, and with oil from the flinty crag.” Deuteronomy 32:13.

This Rock, Christ, is the Rock of his salvation. This Rock of ages, is the Rock of his strength. Of this Rock, he can sing,

“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. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my Savior!” 2 Samuel 22:2-3

Looking around upon all others, he can say: “But their ‘rock’ is not like our Rock; even our enemies concede.” Deuteronomy 32:31

There is no rock like our Rock. None so great, none so ancient, none so durable, none so suited to meet all a sinner’s needs.

On this Rock, we build for eternity!

We have no doubt that our immortal interests are safe. 

To this Rock

We run for safety and smile at the opposition of all our foes.

We hide and are safe from the sword of divine justice, as well as the rage of infernal Hell.

In this Rock, we take shelter and are uninjured by the windy storm and tempest.

From this Rock, we look for all our supplies, and we are not, cannot be disappointed.

Beneath its shade, we enjoy peace and comfort!

In its cleft, we are safe forevermore!

How safe, how happy is the believer, having God for his ROCK; for he builds on a foundation that can never decay, he trusts in a stronghold that can never be taken, and he hides in a refuge from which he can never be expelled!

“The Lord lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God, the Rock, my Savior!” 2 Samuel 22:47

 

Words of Wisdom from the Cloud of Witnesses:  "Cloud of Witnesses" refers to those in Heaven who have run their races and are now with the Lord. Their words of wisdom are filled with faith, hope, love, and joy that warm our souls. Their words present the eternal truths of God that grow us and give us joy. And their words strengthen our souls, equip our minds, encourage our hearts, and empower us to stand firm in our faith and be motivated, ready, and willing to share the hope we have in Jesus.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith...(Hebrews 12:1-2)
