Exalted be my God, the rock of my salvation. ~ 2 Samuel 22:47
愿 神 ─ 那 拯 救 我 的 磐 石 被 人 尊 崇 ！ ~ 撒 母 耳 記 下 22:47
What a huge rock is in that picture! If you tried to push it over, do you think you could? Do you think you could slide it to another place on the beach? Do you think the wind or rain can knock it over? No? I don’t either.
Our verse today says that God is like the rock in the picture. No one is stronger than he is. No one and nothing can move him or knock him down. “Salvation” means saving, and God does that too. He sent his son Jesus to save us from being alone and from doing things that hurt us and others. “Exalt” means to lift someone up high so you can honor them.
Here is how the Contemporary English Version of the Bible translates this verse: “You are a mighty rock. I will honor you for keeping me safe.” Let’s do that this week.
Our Father, thank you that you sent Jesus to save us and keep us safe. Thank you that you are big and strong and that no one can push you around, because that means that I can trust you completely. I praise you for being my solid rock. Amen
