UPON HIS ROCK

1 Peter 2:5
You also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

I was at a Gideon meeting with my husband a few months ago and they were talking about God, our rock. As I listened to the verses that were quoted it made me stop and think about my life. The times I've blundered about thinking I was going to do things on my own only to find out I needed to lean on God to help me through.

Our children sing a song about building your house upon the rock. It will always stand firm. God is that rock. He is always there to listen to your needs, wants, and most of all, your praise.

God is my rock, He is my shield, and protector. 2 Samuel 22 says The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer. I've thought about the times I got up, went about my daily grind, and didn't take time to talk to God first. Oh things went alright, but I could feel something was amiss. Like there was a burden laying on my shoulders. A voice tugging at my side saying. "Come to me. Talk with me, walk with me, and I will give you peace throughout the day."

As soon as I sit down, open my Bible, and talk with God a feeling of elation fills my body.

Gracious Heavenly Father You are my rock and my Redeemer. Forgive me when I start my day out with out You. Lead and guide me always. Amen.
