Psalm 18:2 – The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in Whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
A Living Rock is strongly supported by this Bible passage. It is not that we set ourselves on the level as His, but we can make Him smile on our very own simple ways. He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus to be our model. He is the TRUE LIVING ROCK. We call Him in times of need and we rejoice with Him in every great and happy moment.
(Insert Bible verse)
We too, are His sons and daughters, His soldiers, servants and in Him we surrender everything.
My prayer always includes, “Teach me, Lord to be more like Jesus every day.” And because I am a follower of Him, I prefer to live a life full of His presence. Each one of us is being used as an instrument in fulfilling His works. Through us, His plans are being perfected. (Read: You are the Answer)
How to be a Living Rock?
You and I… can be a living rock. How? Let’s consider this scenario.
One day, a friend of mine was in trouble and frequently asking my advice. I, myself have no idea what to tell her except for a little piece of advice and cracking some corny jokes just to draw smiley on her face. She was absolutely and terribly in trouble. Since, I have no experience and totally no idea to what she’s been going through, I just decided to be with her. Simply be there, thinking that my presence will, somehow ease her pain.
On a different situation, I was the one who needs someone to lean on. I wanted to scream. I wanted to cry. I am deeply and madly in pain physically and emotionally. I am suffering from spiritual dryness but, of course, I felt the need of prayer. “Lord, I need you.” Then a friend from a distance, beep me by sending a message “how are you?” And the rest was another story of healing.
My friend, on the first case and I are now okay.
“A Living Rock” is YOU.
You are not literally a rock. Don’t be too hard for yourself. Do not throw at you and store all the negativity inside you. The world will test you and will be glad watching you deeply burdened by his force. So…
Most importantly, you have to plant a seed of faith and follow wherever it will lead you. It is not about you. Rather, you plus your soul. Your faith will lead you on how to properly respond to so many things.
