The scripture for today is Psalm 95, NIV.
1 Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before him with thanksgiving
and extol him with music and song.
3 For the Lord is the great God,
the great King above all gods.
4 In his hand are the depths of the earth,
and the mountain peaks belong to him.
5 The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands formed the dry land.
6 Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;
7 for he is our God
and we are the people of his pasture,
the flock under his care.
Today, if only you would hear his voice,
Rocks have been used in ancient times for tools and weapons. They even named a period of ancient history the Stone Age. Rocks are often cut and used to build foundations, roads, and mighty buildings. Drill bits and jewelry are made from diamonds. Rocks are not easily destroyed because of their hard nature. Rocks contain minerals that are used to heat our homes and run factories and are part of so many machines and chemical processes. So, it’s easy to say that rocks have been important throughout human history. The Bible refers to God as the “Rock of our salvation”. The only truly sound foundation in this life is God. He should be our source of strength, love, mercy, and salvation. Psalm 62 says, “My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will never be shaken.” Psalm 62
Dear God, You are my God, my rock, my salvation. Your love and mercy overflows and your promises are steadfast and true. Amen
