The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
– Psalm 18:2 (NIV)
by Dave Whitehead, Author of Making Sense of the Bible
The Psalmist gives us language that should grab all of our attention. When we run into hardship, we need to go to God and not away from God. When we do, we find that God is a stabilizing factor that gets us through the pain and trials that we all face. When you are overwhelmed, do you run to your Bible to grab onto the promises of God? If not, you are missing one of the greatest ways that God has strengthened His people for generations.
