Lord, YOU are my ROCK….My Strength!
(The Lord my strength - Psalms 28:7)
“My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever. “ Psalm 73:26 New Living Translation (©2007)
Read Psalm 28 & Psalm 73
As we have daily encountered the circumstances of life, we have realized that we have only maintained the ability to yet be triumphant because of an inner strength that has been and always will be prevalent. This strength is not our strength, but the strength of the Lord.
The word strength in the above text translates as “rock”. Therefore, Lord, may I remember that you are my perpetual “ROCK”. When all else fails—you, Lord will remain constant. Even if there comes a time when my health, wealth, and spirit become temporarily overwhelmed—you are still my strength. Daily may I never attempt to stand in my own strength. Daily may I acknowledge you, Jehovah Uzzi, in all of my ways. Daily may I remember that I CAN do all things through your strength which is that rock, that pillar and that fortress who will remain faithful, forever in my life.
So Lord, when everything: every foundational principle, every prop, every support system, every ideology, every concept, every belief system –EVERYTING… that has been erected in my life—is shaken….may I never, never, never forget that YOU are my strength…..my rock.
May I fully understand and cling to the essence of an old favorite hymn which states:
“On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand”.
Several years ago, Dottie Rambo wrote the song below that has influenced many other song artists to re-record it entitled, “I GO TO THE ROCK”. Why not permit the lyrics of this song to minister the healing, peace, and the stability that only a rock can confirm……and LEARN to lean and totally depend on your Jehovah Uzzi.
I Go To The Rock
Where do I go when there's nobody else to turn to? Who do I talk to when nobody wants to listen?
Who do I lean on when there's no foundation stable?
I go to the rock - I know He's able - I go to the rock.
The Lord is the rock I go to the rock for my salvation; I go to the stone that the builders rejected,
I run to the mountain and the mountain, He stands by me.
When the Earth all around me is sinking sand. On Christ, the solid rock I stand,
When I need a shelter, when I need a friend….. I go to the rock.
Where do I go, where do I go; When the storms of life are threatening?
Who do I turn to when those winds of sorrows blow? And is there a refuge in the time of tribulation?
I go to the rock - I know He's able - I go to the rock!
