Our God – the Rock

        One of the most beautiful descriptions of our God in the Bible has to be that of a Rock.  “The Rock, his work is perfect, for all his ways are justice.” (Deuteronomy 32:4).  “For who is God, but the LORD?  And who is a rock, except our God? – “ (Psalm 18:31).  “Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.” (Isaiah 26:4)

       This beautiful metaphor illustrates the unchanging nature of our God.  “For I, the LORD do not change.”  (Malachi 3:6).  God is described as having “no variation or shadow due to change.” (James 1:17).  And Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”

      What a comfort this is to the Christian’s heart!  To know that seasons change, people change, circumstances change and trends change.  But the attributes of God are forever unchanging.  Our God is forever faithful, forever true, forever merciful, forever love.  “[His] steadfast love endures forever, his faithfulness to all generations” (Psalm 100:5). 

      Dear Christian, are you unsettled by the ever changing nature of these fluctuating times?  Come rest your soul upon the never-changing God. A.W. Tozer writes, “In a world where men forget us. . . is it not a source of wondrous strength to know that the God with whom we have to do changes not?. . . His attitude toward us now is the same as it was in eternity past and will be in eternity to come.”

Truly this is cause for the Christian to sing:
    On Christ the solid rock I stand

    All other ground is sinking sand
    All other ground is sinking sand
