SJA Notes

“The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my delivered, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,”

Here is David that we can replicate, glorifying God, bringing praise to the Lord, showing a depth of faith and understanding that is a blessing for all who read these words, time after time, over and over.

This is a Lord’s Christ psalm, a Messiah song. One written by a king that the Lord blessed mightily, a king who conquered the enemies of God’s people.

This song points us to Jesus. We see the truths found in His word, that the cords of Sheol entangled Him, the snares of death confronted Him.

And at the cross and in the tomb the LORD bowed the heavens and came down!

“In my distress I called upon the LORD; to my God I called. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry came to his ears.”

As well though, this is a servant’s prayer, a song for the disciple of Jesus.

“He rescued me, because he delighted in me.”

“He is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.”

“The LORD lives, and blessed be my rock, and exalted be my God, the rock of my salvation,”

This is a most wonderful reading, a song that we can sing and wrestle with – Onwards, often and always. There is so much depth here, hope and love and wisdom.

What a wonderful heavenly Father we have, the He would give us encouragement such as this, from His word down through the ages.

Hallelujah!

* God Above, Heavenly Father,

You are the God who lives, is alive, the only and true and real God.

You are the rock of our salvation – You and You alone.

You are the only one worthy and deserving of our worship.

Lord please forgive us today for our sin, the muck and the bad decisions, the folly chosen and the error of our ways as we walk this road.

Please aright our hearts today, set our minds on You – Please Lord God, show us Jesus today, and may we point others to Him.
