BIBLE VERSE: "He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken" (Psalm 62:2)
TRUTH: There is a running theme to the first six of these 31 days of Biblical Truths. We are the light of the world to reflect Christ and we must stand for the Faith through Godly discipline and love. But what are we standing on? This verse guarantees that the Promises of God are not just “yes and amen” but set in unbreakable concrete. Look at the words used by the psalmist, under inspiration from God – “Rock”, “Salvation”, “Defense”. These are powerful Truths straight from the Heart and Mouth of God.
He is not a pebble which can be kicked around. God is a Rock Who will not move. He is as fixed as the North Star. We know He is our Salvation. His Spirit living in real Christians is living Proof. But He is also our defense. It may not appear so when we see our brethren persecuted, but it IS so! Every day you wake up in good health. He is your Defense. Every day you arrive at your destination, He is your Defense. When we do something stupid and don’t get in any kind of trouble at school, or on the highway or at work – He is your Defense. When you walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, and you fear no evil, He is your Defense.
All of these facts should fortify our souls and cause us to boldly proclaim “I SHALL NOT BE GREATLY MOVED”!
