“The LORD is my rock. and my fortress, and my deliverer.” 2 Samuel 22:2
In the Bible God is sometimes called, “The Rock” — in other words, our help, our shield, our strength, our deliverer, our stronghold, and our Saviour. He will help us and will be our rock if we trust in Him, and do whatever He asks us to do.
Working with rocks is one of my passions. When I find the right sort of stone, I’ll cut it on the diamond saw and most of the time the results are outstanding, and bring me great satisfaction. I also enjoy learning about stones, where they came from, how they were formed and so-forth. I’m always looking for more things to learn about rocks.
What spiritual lessons can we learn from rocks? Well, Christianity and God are just like stones. When you are trying to tell someone about Jesus and they are not interested, they are looking on the outside of the stone. They see Christianity and God as a dirty, uninteresting stone. People need to be shown the inside of the stone, the wonderful things God has done, the things that He will do, and the provision of eternal life. Then, with God’s help, they will be fascinated and will want to find out as much as they can about Him.
Stones have taught me both physical and spiritual lessons. All we need to do is trust in Jesus as our Lord and Saviour and do what He wants us to do, and NOT what WE think is best. In the Bible it says, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Proverbs 14:12
May God be our Rock. “The LORD lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let God be exalted, the Rock of my salvation!” 2 Samuel 22:47 NKJV
