How You are Known (4) – The Stone of Israel

The Stone of Israel

“But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel.” (Genesis 49:24)

Oh, “Stone of Israel”, chief Cornerstone, rejected by the builders, Stone of Stumbling, Rock of Offense, Foundation Stone, on which alone we build aught that shall stand, make me a polished, living stone; built in with other stones; perchance a pillar to go out no more, but always a part of Thy temple, for Thine own dwelling. Thrice Holy Lord, self-offered for my peace; through death that I might live, through fire that I might become indestructible – enlighten me today till I perceive Thy peace that passeth understanding. Amen.
