I am having a ball in the Psalms this time through the Bible. The word pictures just keep jumping off the page and into my life. Like this one:
“Lead me to a rock that towers above me” (Psalm 61:2 AAT).
You never have to teach your kids (or grandkids) to climb on rocks. From parks to the zoo to a creek or the each, take them anywhere there are rocks and they will automatically begin climbing.
Why is that so appealing? Is it the physical challenge? It is the sense of accomplishment when you get to the top? Is is a chance to be higher and taller than the grown-ups? Or is it for that moment when they can announce, “Look at me! I’m all the way up here!”
For David, these words were his prayer for help against an enemy. The top of a rock was a good defensive position, a strong tower of protection. There’s no better rock and no more secure tower than God himself!
You’re never too young to begin and never get too old to keep climbing on the Rock!
