Prayer Mentoring with David (Psalm 62)

If you want to read Psalm 62 you can click HERE.

Last week (Psalm 57) the imagery that was in David’s mind was that of a refuge as he was hiding from King Saul in a cave. This week the imagery in his mind as he thinks about God is that of a rock:

My soul finds rest in God alone;
    my salvation comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

3 times in this Psalm David refers to God as his Rock. It would appear from reading this Psalm that things were on somewhat shaky ground in his kingdom. David knew that he could cling to THE Rock even when “all other ground was sinking sand.”

We all need a Rock to cling to. Often the ground under our feet is shaky. Sometimes we even get that sinking feeling. Praise God that He is our Rock.

A few years ago I wrote a song in this regard. I will share the words with you (and spare you the audio version). As I was thinking about God as my Rock this is how I expressed it. I would encourage you to ponder the great truth that God is your Rock and find a way somehow to express it.

You are a Rock

You are a Rock that refreshes
You are a Rock that I find refuge in
You are a Rock that has redeemed me
A Rock that has released me from my sin

And I will praise you
I will praise you
I’ll praise your holy name
Your greatness I’ll proclaim
I will praise you
I will praise you
I’ll praise the one who is the solid Rock.

You are a Rock I can rely on
You are a Rock that has rescued me from hell
You are a Rock that I can run to
A Rock that I can rest in when I fail
