Where Do You Go???….“I Go To The ROCK!” 

Lord, YOU are my strength! 


(The Lord my strength - Psalms 28:7)


(O Lord my strength - Psalm 19:14)

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)



As we have daily encountered some of the adverse circumstances of life; we’ve 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 in the above texts for strength translates as “rock”. Therefore, Lord, may I remember that you are my perpetual “ROCK”.  When all else fails—you will remain constant.  Even if there comes a time as Psalm 73:6 references; when my health, wealth, and spirit become overwhelmed—you will always still be my strength.  Daily may I never attempt to stand in my own strength.  Daily may I acknowledge that you are my power source.  May I never attempt to exhort my own ideologies, methodologies, concepts or precepts – outside of the perimeter of who you are – but acknowledge your strength in all of my ways.  Daily may I remain cognizant that I CAN do all things through YOUR strength which is that rock; that pillar and that eternal fortress forever established in my life. 


So Lord, when everything: every foundation, every prop, every support system that has been erected in my life - is shaken….may I never, never, never forget that YOU are my strength …..my rock.  Therefore, I can Never fail nor fall…..because I’m anchored on the 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”.   You, O Lord are my Jehovah Tsuri…..You are my Jehovah Uzzi……You are MY ROCK!!!


I Go to the Rock – Dottie Rambo (also recorded by Whitney Huston)

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.
