“To you, Lord, I call; you are my Rock, do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you remain silent, I will be like those who go down to the pit. Hear my cry for mercy as I call to you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place.”
Rocks are hard. They don’t move. They are stable and strong. When we describe God as our Rock, we are counting on the fact that He will not change. He will always be the same yesterday, today, and forever.
But rocks don’t do a great deal of talking. They are the strong silent type.
Our God is very much like a rock. He is strong, steadfast, unchanging, but He is not silent. He speaks. Without God’s voice, His leading, His help, David knew that he was as good as dead.
We can be like David and cry out to the Lord to speak. But we can also go every day to our Bible. God speaks every time we read it.
Our God is a Rock, strong, stable, unchanging, but not silent.
Lord, I am so grateful for Your Word. I can go to it every day, every time I need to hear from You and I know that You will speak. Thank You.
