It’s finally the weekend. Deep breaths.
The Bridge can’t get “I Go to the Rock” out of it’s head. Share this with a friend who loves the slow part.
Whether you’re having coffee, driving in a car, commuting to work, at your job, in a busy city surrounded by thousands, hustling to meet deadlines, cleaning your house, doing laundry, or just in the chaos of your own mind—no matter where you are or what you’re doing—you can go anywhere in your mind.
Go to the ROCK.
Ain’t No Mountain High Enough . . .
Jesus knows every trial, hurt, and doubt we face. He knows every question of why? We can we have peace in our hearts when our world is turned upside down.
Talk to Jesus.
His peace is beyond all understanding, and He will set your heart at ease. He is there, waiting.
Alexa, Play Go to the Rock
This past weekend, Brother Nobles talked about David saying the Lord was his rock and about Psalm 51 and keeping a contrite and broken spirit – not just when we need forgiveness. God is looking for a contrite and humble spirit in us. We looked at the pattern that David was presenting (also Psalm 31). The psalms give us emotional support, touch our heart, get in deep and move us, and give us correction.
David lived Psalm 34 at ALL times — when he couldn’t see his way out, he was afraid, and didn’t know where to turn, He went to the strong rock and fortress:
“In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness. Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me. For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name’s sake lead me, and guide me.”
When You See Mercy in God’s Eyes
David worked to have this pattern in his life and a contrite mindset, which he kept. He had a strong revelation of who God is and what He’s done, and he knew when he cried out to God with a clean heart, there would be times heaven would come running and he would see mercy in God’s eyes. We are developing the same spirit knowing when we call on God, He will hear us and deliver us — not wondering if He will.
If you stop and think how far His grace has carried you through life, you can’t help but respond with a heart, broken and contrite.
