“Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.”
What can we do when we feel overwhelmed? Run to the Rock.
“lead me to the rock that is higher than I”
“The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.”
When we are overwhelmed we tend to forget even the simplest truths. Our safety, our strength, our salvation all comes from the Lord, our Rock.
“I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.”
This is not just any other rock or boulder, but the Rock of Ages. Within this Rock is everlasting strength that we can trust to be there whenever we cry unto Him.
“Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength:”
Run to the Rock today. When you don’t know where to turn, He’s there.
