The Rock

I’ve been thinking about life experiences. Some are mountaintop experiences where I’ve stood in joy and strength on the solid rock of the summit. Others are very low experiences where I’ve sunk to rock bottom.

But here’s a bit of truth that is truly a beautiful thing: whether we are standing high on the rocks of the mountain or low on rock bottom, the Rock is still there. Do you get it? The Rock. Jesus. He’s there for our joys and he’s there for our sorrows.  He’s a solid friend who is just as present in sorrow as he is in celebration.

Rock Bottom

I don’t know about you, but I know what it is to hit rock bottom. There’s something very reassuring about knowing that you’ve hit rock bottom and re-surfaced. Some people don’t re-surface though, and I believe that’s because their feet have never actually touched the Rock at the bottom. We can be sinking and sinking, but if our feet eventually make contact with the Rock at the bottom, we can then use that Rock as a springboard to push our way back up.

The Bible says that Jesus is the Rock of our Salvation. He’s strong and solid and dependable. If today is a mountaintop day, plant your feet on the Rock and rejoice! If today is a rock bottom day, keep praying and seeking the Lord and your feet will settle on the Rock that will spring you back to the surface.

“Oh come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation” (Psalm 95:1).
