“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. (KJV)
There is a rock called the Rock of Gibraltar located in the British overseas territory of Gibraltar, near the southwestern tip of Europe on the Iberian Peninsula. It is a massive island rock, and has been a picture of strength, power, and stability for many years; maybe even centuries and millenniums. There is a Rock that stands for all eternity, and that Rock is Christ Jesus.
David said this of the LORD, that is YaHWeH, and He is GOD. GOD is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Our Lord Jesus Christ is said by the apostle Paul to be the Rock that was with the children of Israel through the wilderness (1 Corinthians 10:4).
When we are faced with an enemy; whether the devil and his legions of Hell, or the neighbor next door; Christ Jesus is our Rock. I can say with David, the the LORD is my Rock. I can stand on Him, and never fear of being without Him, because He has said I will never leave you.
He is my deliverer. He is my strength. Without Him I can do nothing; with Him I can do all things through Him that glorify His name. One of the things about Christ being our Rock is He is everything we need. As the high tower we need not fear what may be in our future. The future is not mine to know, but to know Christ is to leave it in His hands because He can see all things and has control over it.
“The LORD is my rock, and my fortress…” because He made a way for me. He made a way for us to know Him, and that is through the cross upon which He bled and died.
