I Go to the Rock!
Ever had a day like this?
My World is Collapsing Around Me
Oh God—what more can go wrong? How much more can this family face? The only certainty I feel God, is that I am certain this trial will never end!~ When will this attack cease Lord? Where do we go to protect ourselves from the tremblings of this battle?
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—from violent men you save me. II Samuel 22: 2-3
While facing mortal enemies, David must have felt that his world was collapsing under his feet; perhaps even ending in death. However, believing that the only true security was to call upon God—His Rock, he did not hide under the rocks of the desert. He took refuge in his fortress—God. Following his victory over foreign enemies, David sang this song of praise to the Lord.
Thank you God, that although my world may appear to be crumbling fast and furious, I can take refuge in you. You are my fortress. You are my stronghold. And should I continue to fall, you will deliver me. You are my unfailing Rock. Please accept this as my song of praise and gratitude for my victory in you!
