Rest in the Rock

Rest in the RockFind rest, O my soul,

it comes from God alone;

for He is my Rock,

the true foundation stone.

He is my fortress,

in Him I will not shake;

my own salvation,

and honor He does make.

He’s my mighty Rock,

my refuge through the storm;

the place of safety,

my soul kept safe and warm.

Trust in Him always,

O people of the Lord;

He’s our Protector,

powerful shield and sword.

One thing He’s spoken,

and two things I have heard;

You, O God, are strong,

and Your love is a verb.

For our great reward,

bestowed from the Son;

is eternal hope,

for life’s race that we run.

(Responding to Psalm 62:5-8, 11-12)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are our Rock and our Refuge. Thank You that we may take shelter in the shadow of Your wings. Thank You that when we place our trust in You, we will not be shaken – even in the strength of the storm’s full fury. Forgive us for not fully trusting You in all things and at all times, and teach us to trust, as You alone deserve all of our trust. May we walk out our days trusting in Your strength, not our own; and may we live lives of love, just as You love us. Let those who are looking, see Your light shining through our love. In Your mighty Name, amen.
