With my hands in dish water and gazing out the window at the birds gathering at the feeders the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart "Psalm 62".
I resisted, but the Spirit persisted (that I too be fed), "Psalm 62" was the message resounding now. I sighed, dried my hands, and I read as I underlined and "starred" selected verses...
"In God is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God." verse 7 NKJV
I was immediately elated, and just had to share this with others! Then, all "hell" broke loose - the whole week was just one episode after another in a long drawn out drama until the devil had me right where he wanted me - deflated; but, praise God - praise God... not defeated!
Because the Holy Spirit spoke again, "Psalm 18" and this time I went right to it! I read, underlined and "starred"...
"The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer." verse 2 NKJV
At this, the second part of what seems now to be a two part message, I finally got it, loud and clear!
"Live it!", "Live Life for God and in God!"
"Stand on the Rock" don't look for one to hide under...
Psalm 18 is a song of victory...
When God truly becomes the rock we stand on, truly is the fortress in which we are, and we truly recognize Him and Him alone as our Savior and Protector then we can truly live abundantly, because without Him, we are vulnerable and exposed to everything else that the world (the devil) will throw at you.
