February 10: Rock Climbing

February 10_rockB“From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”  (Psalm 61:2)

No matter where we are, no matter how far we are from home, we can cry to Him for help and He’ll hear our cry. Wherever we are, we have access to the throne of grace where we will find help in the time of need. That’s a promise, one that will lead us to the Rock every time there’s a need. One commentator said, “That which separates us from our other comforts should drive us so much the nearer to God, the fountain of all comfort.”

No matter how overwhelmed our heart may feel at times, it must be lifted up to God in prayer. There is no other solution for life’s problems, and He’s always there with arms opened wide; many times He’s waiting for us just to ask for His help.

The next time you’re at the end of your rope, or your circumstances seem to be swallowing you up, or problems are overwhelming you, be sure to run to Him in prayer … no amount of wishing and hoping and positive thinking will rescue you like the arm of the Most High reaching down and guiding you to the path of deliverance from your situation.

Remember, if He leads you to the rock (and He will), you will be on top of your problems and see your circumstances from a far different perspective. This Rock is Christ, and we are safe if we are in Him.

Father, I must confess that many times I am overwhelmed, but I thank You and praise You for the assurance that there is a Rock that is higher than I, amen.

“The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.”  (Psalm 18:2)
