Rock Solid - October 11, 2010

Psalm 62 (New International Version)

1 My soul finds rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from him.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

3 How long will you assault a man?
Would all of you throw him down—
this leaning wall, this tottering fence?

4 They fully intend to topple him
from his lofty place;
they take delight in lies.
With their mouths they bless,
but in their hearts they curse.

Selah

5 Find rest, O my soul, in God alone;
my hope comes from him.

6 He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

7 My salvation and my honor depend on God;
he is my mighty rock, my refuge.

8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.

Selah

9 Lowborn men are but a breath,
the highborn are but a lie;
if weighed on a balance, they are nothing;
together they are only a breath.

10 Do not trust in extortion
or take pride in stolen goods;
though your riches increase,
do not set your heart on them.

11 One thing God has spoken,
two things have I heard:
that you, O God, are strong,

12 and that you, O Lord, are loving.
Surely you will reward each person
according to what he has done.

Nothing is better than a firm foundation. As a faithful believer, where would you be without your reliance on God? I have had many conversations about how God rescued this person or that person from lives that were on a path of destruction. By the grace and mercy of God, He rescued them in their distress, and now they have a "rock solid" relationship with the Creator of the universe. He is someone that you will always be able to depend on. Turn your life over to Him; as David says in his psalm above, "He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken."
