How You are Known (17) – My Strong Rock

“Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an hour of defence to save me.” (Psalm 31:2)

No sorrow of man is so deep and dark and bitter as to be without a refuge, a rock, a safe retreat. My soul, however deep thy sorrow, however dark thy sin, however hopeless thy lot among men, the Man of Sorrows bore thy sin in His own body on the tree. He carried all thy grief. He is thy “Strong Rock”. A strong safe house, in which I am defended from myself, the world, the devil.

Rock of ages, cleft for me,

Let me hide myself in Thee. Amen.
