Wednesday’s Word – Rock

Rock - Psalm 18
Picture taken in Czech Republic

Sometimes I wonder how I get the energy to do all that I do – then I remember, God does it. I rest in Him. He is my Rock.

“He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand” (Psalm 40:2, NIV).

So many times I feel like I am slipping – with tiredness, with lack of focus, and sometimes just in a fog. Then I remember – He is my Rock. And I say to myself:

He set my feet upon a Rock. I can stand up;
I can stand firm; I will not fall.

Sarah Young in Jesus Calling says this:

“To get your mind back in gear, just turn toward Me, bringing yourself and your problems into My Presence” (April 9).

When the going gets tough I realize I have slipped off that rock and I must conscientiously climb back up – focus on Jesus and let Him do the rest.

And I love the song Jesus is the Rock of my salvation, His Banner over Me is love by the Cedarmont Kids.

Look at the leading words to each verse:

The Lord is mine and I am His

He brought me to His banqueting table

He lifted me up into heavenly places

He is the vine and we are the branches

Jesus is the Rock of my salvation

There’s one way to peace through the power of the cross

And a final Scripture that sums it up:

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39, NIV).

  1. Awesome photo and post, Janis! His timing is always right and His purposes superior to ours — may we always be sensitive to follow His lead at the moment of His leading!

  2. Dear sweet Janis
    Yes, we need His grace and strength everyday. I know that with the Fm/CFS, I cannot even think of opening my eyes in the morning without our dearest Lord! Romans 8 is one of my favorite, most comforting passages in the whole Bible. The key to this verse, I have found to be “in Christ”. For in Him we live and move and have our being. Let us always not only run to Him, but abide in Him forever and ever! Thank you for again being our gracious hostess.

  3. I forgot I was here to linkup as I read your post first and was so blessed as it so totally met my immediate need TODAY. Thanks for hosting and I hope you have time to share this over at WholeHearted Home today…I realize how time is of the essence.

    1. Thank you so much for this comment. As I wrote this after a very hectic day I prayed for the words. Thanking and praising God for giving them to me.

I love to connect with you.
