SAA Notes

Reflect on the words in Psalm 29: The voice of the Lord, and tie them in with the Word of the Lord – Jesus. In Psalm 28, David uses the image of the Rock! A concordance will help you trace references to this important image – e.g., Exodus 17:6, 33:22, Isaiah 8:14, 32:2, 1 Samuel 2:2, Daniel 2:2,3.

SJA Notes

“To you, O LORD, I call; my rock, be not deaf to me, lest, if you be silent to me, I become like those who go down to the pit.”

In one sentence David shows us both the reality of his foundation (the Lord, our Rock!) _and_ cries out his cares and worries.

This is a wonderful encouragement to us, that we too can do the same.

There is a good order of foundation here to see. That David first acknowledges God, then casts his cares on Him.

As we wrestle with life, whatever may beset us – We can be reminded here of how to approach our God.

* God Above,

You are our rock, our salvation, our shield and our defender!

Please do not forsake us.

Thank You for the good news of Jesus – That in Him we who were once enemies are now counted as friends!

We are not forsaken if we are found in Christ.

Thank You Lord!

Amen.
