He only is my rock and my salvation. -Psalm 62:2
“My rock!” What a history the rock might give you of the storms to which it has been exposed; of the tempests which have raged in the ocean at its base, and of the thunders which have disturbed the skies above its head; while it, itself, has stood unscathed by tempests, and unmoved by the buffettings of storms. So with our God. How firm hath He stood-how steadfast hath He been-though the nations have reviled Him, and “the kings of the earth have taken counsel together!” By merely standing still He hath broken the ranks of the enemy, without even stretching forth His hand! With motionless grandeur like a rock He hath broken the waves, and scattered the armies of His enemies, driving them back in confusion. Look at the rock again: see how firm and unmoved it stands! It doth not stray from place to place, but it abideth fast for evermore. Other things have changed, islands have been drowned beneath the sea, and continents have been shaken; but see, the rock stands as steadfast as if it were the very foundation of the whole world, and could not move till the wreck of creation, or the loosening of the bands of nature. So with God: how faithful He is in His promises! how unalterable in His decrees! how unswerving! how unchanging!
How noble a title. So sublime, suggestive, and overpowering. “My Rock.” It is a figure so divine, that to God alone shall it ever be applied.~ C.H. Spurgeon
