Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.
The words “always” and “eternal” go together. We can trust God eternally because he is always our Rock! And David describes what a Rock is...
I love you, Lord;
you are my strength.
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior;
my God is my rock, in whom I find protection.
He is my shield, the power that saves me,
and my place of safety.
I called on the Lord, who is worthy of praise,
and he saved me from my enemies.
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, my protection, my shield, and my place of safety as David described. It is easy to think these are all only invisible attributes until we keep reading and see that David was literally saved by actual enemies too. God protects all of our visible as well as invisible components. He protects the heart, mind, soul and strength of every person who trusts in him.
Interestingly enough, the Greatest Commandment (Luke 10:27) addresses the same elements: You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind. And he is our Rock, our protection, so we can do just that!
Thank you for being concerned with every single bit of me. Thank you for keeping me safe physically, emotionally and spiritually. I love you so much and appreciate your loving concern over my life, and I pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
