At times we feel as if the world and its troubles are about to sweep us off our feet. Before we begin to fear the floods of life are about over our head we are wise to head to Jesus, the Rock higher than our circumstances.
I Run to the Rock
Open up our eyes Lord to see,
When the truth is blocked by our enemy.
Allow our hearts to be free,
From lies and deceit.
We seek Your divine protection,
Guard our life from deception.
When the world magnifies lies dressed in truth’s garb,
Help us detect it and come against the deception hard.
Help our minds to absorb what the Word says is right,
And push every other thing away and out of sight.
When opportunity arises give us the words to say;
That testifies truth to others to show and lead the way.
In the world’s confusion and its shaky ground,
I will run to the rock and rest on truth sound.
In the winds and rain that threatens to flood my land,
I depend on Jesus’ helping hand.
I will walk with Him on murky waters if need be;
Because on Him I depend and He is strong in me.
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.
Jesus is the reason we are able to live the Word. He is God’s Word that reigns in our life. If we rely on His help and His wisdom we are living according to His will. Since all our strength comes from God all the glory goes to Him too. He is the rock and strength in our heart.
Rock and Strength of Our Heart
Strength comes to those that depend,
On Jesus the Rock and trust in Him.
Strength is by God supplied,
Each day a new portion comes from God on high.
Stand strong on God’s Word, it is forever true.
When you stand on the Word, He stands strong in you.
Feed upon Scriptures goodness it is good to taste,
Not one word will fail or cause you disgrace.
Speak the Word; allow the truth to reign strong.
Your heart will burst into praise and worship song.
Walk the Word, the world becomes a better place,
For it is covered with mercy and colored by grace.
Live the Word, in its holy atmosphere,
Jesus the Word in you is very near.
His strength is mighty; one breath of His favor causes increase.
He is Living Water, He is Prince of Peace.
Strength comes by digesting His goodness and living tall without fear.
With the God of Salvation; fear disappears.
He is Rock-solid in His redeemed eternally.
Jesus is indeed all you will ever need.
2 Samuel 22:2-3
And he said,The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; The God of my rock; in him will
I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge,
