That Rock

Psalm 61
1
Hear my cry, O God;
listen to my prayer.
2
From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3
For you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the foe.
4 See the source image
I long to dwell in your tent forever
and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.[b]
5
For you, God, have heard my vows;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6
Increase the days of the king’s life,
his years for many generations.
7
May he be enthroned in God’s presence forever;
appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
8
Then I will ever sing in praise of your name
and fulfil my vows day after day.

There has and will be times that we need God to protect us from the devil because we are only human and from time to time things are sent to tempt us, sinful things. It’s at times like these we need the Lord the most and we should come to him in prayer and sing his praises once again

 

Why don’t you lead me to that Rock that is higher than I
Oh lead me, yes Lord lead me
Why don’t you lead me to that Rock that is higher than I
Thou hast been a shelter for me
Well if you go down in yonder fold and search among the sheep
My brother thou hast been a shelter for me
Well you’ll find Him there so I am told with those He loves to keep
My brother thou hast been a shelter for me
If you’ll go in to the wilderness where dying ones are lost
My brother thou hast been a shelter for me
Well you’ll find Him there to heal and bless no matter what the cost
My brother thou hast been a shelter for me

Isaiah 40 New International Version

25 “To whom will you compare me?
    Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One.
26 Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens:
    Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one
    and calls forth each of them by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
    not one of them is missing.

27 Why do you complain, Jacob?
    Why do you say, Israel,
“My way is hidden from the Lord;
    my cause is disregarded by my God”?
28 Do you not know?
    Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
    and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
    and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
    and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.

“He Will Give The Weary Strength”

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength
They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint
And like a flight upon an eagle’s wings, He will give the weary strength

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength
They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint
And like a flight upon an eagle’s wings, He will give the weary strength

So lift your eyes up to the sky
To the one who hears you when you cry

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength
They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint
Like a flight upon an eagle’s wings, He will give, He will give
He will give the weary strength
