“God my Rock”
The Lord Lives!
Blessed be my Rock!
Let the God of my salvation be exalted.
Trials and Victories. A time to weep and a time to laugh. When you look at this verse it just explodes out of Psalm 18! In Psalm 17 David is pleading his case before the Lord vs 3: You have tested my heart, you have visited me in the night; You have found nothing.
Psalm 18, David begins to remind himself of who God is in his life and what He has done for him in the past. Suddenly he bursts out with this “The Lord Lives!” “Blessed be my Rock!” “Let the God of my salvation be exalted!” It bursts out of his heart like the waters of Mount Horeb, the Rock that provided water for Moses and the Hebrew people in Exodus 17:6. This was the first time that the word rock was mentioned in the bible. Jesus was the Rock and still is to this day, 1 Corinthians 10:4 For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.
How Can a Rock follow you? And how can you drink out of a Rock? Well it’s simple when you know the character of the Rock. Sometimes when you’re going through the trials in life remind yourself and God of what He has done for you in the past and Thank Him. I’ve done this and the presence of the Holy Spirit brings peace to you knowing He won’t fail this time either. Remember He is the God of your salvation, and salvation means victory.
He is: “El Sela”
