A rock is a solid structure that only grows stronger with time. It can take thousands of years for a rock to change.
When I chose new flooring for my house, I chose a good grade of plywood because I wanted a solid floor—one that would last for a while. The strong pyramids of Egypt were made of limestone rock, and they stood the test of time. Builders trust construction foundations made of rock and stone because they provide a sure foundation that will last.
The psalmist compares the Lord to a rock. Moses referred to the Lord as a rock because of the mighty strength and power He demonstrated to the children of Israel when He delivered them from the mighty hand of Pharoah.
Paul compares Jesus to a rock. He says our fathers of old drank the same spiritual drink because they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them and that Rock was Christ.
Our Savior is strong and powerful like a solid rock foundation. Not only is He mighty and powerful in physical strength, but He is also tenderhearted like a newborn baby—forgiving seventy times seven.
Our God—who is strong enough to wipe us all out in a moment—wants to have a loving relationship with His sons and daughters. He’s not the bad guy.
God is a merciful, loving Savior in whom you can put all your trust.
