Lifted Up on the Rock of the Word
The Bible, the Word of God, is our only infallible source of hearing the voice of God, wouldn’t you agree?
With our culture of “information overload,” it’s sometimes good to get back to the basics.
The Bible contains God’s wonderful bedrock of established Truth (Truth with a capital, “T”)!
I’ve been meditating upon Psalm 27 a lot recently. The Psalmist wrote prophetically of Jesus Christ, our Savior:
“In the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me upon a rock, and now my head will be lifted up above my enemies round about me” (Psalm 27: 5-6a).
Wonderful! You are hidden in the secret place with Jesus. He is symbolized here as a ROCK upon which you can continually come, and with His perspective, be lifted up above your enemies, and re-align yourself with Truth.
Here is a short list of just 5 “needs” that you might currently be facing. On the right is “the answer” of that need, some “Truth with a capital T” for you to memorize.
Whatever the need, there are answers in the Established Word!
The Need // The Answer
Healing // Isaiah 53: 4-5, I Peter 2:24
Encouragement // Psalm 27, 2 Corinthians 4
Repentance // Psalm 51, I John 1:9
Peace // Psalm 23, Philippians 4: 6-7
National Crisis // 2 Kings 19: 14-19, Revelation 12: 11
Develop a daily discipline of study of the Word, memorizing certain passages, and spending quality time in the presence of the LORD meditating upon His Word! Be lifted up upon the ROCK!
