Living On The Rock

Living On The Rock by Kirk Hunt


And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;   The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.   I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

2 Samuel 22:2–4 KJV

For the first time, in years, there was no morning war council.  The scouts and surveillance agents had nothing to report.  Peace and quiet held sway over the kingdom.


How would you react?  David had spent many years, one step in front of various hangmen.  David’s enemies were not just Philistines, or King Saul and his family.  His own son, Absalom, had attempted to kill him.


The sudden absence of pursuers pulled a response out of David.  In gratitude and praise, he wrote a song to his God.  Given a chance to celebrate peace and security, David worshipped.


No matter the hardships of your life, you can rest easy.  God has protected you up until now.  The spiritual bedrock of God is your security and safety.   Today and tomorrow, He will save you from enemies foreign and domestic.


Think:                        No matter what is going on, God is the rock I live on.


Pray:              “Lord, help me to remember to live on the Rock of You.”
