God my rock!

'Sometimes God lets you hit rock bottom so that you realise that he is the rock at the bottom'

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. (‭Psalms‬ ‭18‬:‭2‬ KJV)

I love you, GOD — you make me strong. GOD is bedrock under my feet, the castle in which I live, my rescuing knight. My God—the high crag where I run for dear life, hiding behind the boulders, safe in the granite hideout. (‭Psalm‬ ‭18‬:‭1-2‬ MSG)

Reading this verse I just was thinking about the actual meaning of it, 'the Lord is my ROCK' from the Stone Age rocks have been used for tools. The minerals and metals found in rocks have been essential to human civilisation. So if God is being referred as a rock to us for me it means that everything about God is essential to our lives, that he is our anchor, he is the rock anchoring us when we tribulations come at us to attack. If we only just hold on to him we will conquer all that is to come. He is a steadfast and unchanging God, the same today yesterday and days to come.

'My Fortress', the word/place Fortress is defined as a place or source of refuge and support. Our God is our fortress he is the one we can go to when we are in trouble, we can go to him at anytime where we will find all we need in his presence, there's nothing that the world can give that will replace the peace/support/protection that Lord gives to us his children. He is the one that knows you, every hair on your head! Can you imagine that? He is the one that has joy for you!

The Lord is also our deliverer! Our strength! His strength is made perfect in our weaknesses! We don't have to struggle by ourselves trying to make things happen when our Heavenly Father has offered and given us his help for free asking nothing in return! There's nothing we could ever give to pay God for all he has done for us. The Lord is also our buckler our shield he protects us his children, if us humans as evil as we are can protect our children what about the father who created and made us how much more will he do for us? If he has his eye on a sparrow what about you? His perfect creation!

So I pray that you may have and encounter with God and real experience of the real God! Not of people's opinions. I pray that the Holy Spirit may guide you and speak to your heart so you may have a personal experience with God so may learn more about him and share him with others! I pray that you may make God the rock of your life!

In jesus name. Amen
