The Rock around the Clock of Life (Thought for Feb 2019)

5 Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.
6 Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7 My salvation and my honour depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.

The three verses above are encouraging words from Psalm 62. Written by King David, who was a fugitive at the time, fleeing to save his life.
True character often shows itself in times of trial and this was the case for David. His trust in a time of intense trial was in God.
I recently read, and quoted one Sunday morning, words written by someone who had gone through a desperate time of personal trial. The point they made is that rather than weaken their faith, it strengthened it.

This is what they said. “Yet, there was one thing I knew for certain: God was still with me. No, I could not see Him or sense Him. But I held on to the hope that knowing Christ had instilled in me: that I could go nowhere from His presence, His care, or His grace even when I felt utterly, desperately weak and broken.”

Somehow, in the most ironic way and despite everything falling apart, my confidence in God actually deepened.

I wonder. Does this describe you?
