He shielded him and cared for him;
he guarded him as the apple of his eye,
like an eagle that stirs up its nest
and hovers over its young,
that spreads its wings to catch them
and carries them on its pinions.
Five times, in Deuteronomy 32 we see the word Rock used in the description of God.
4 He is the Rock, his works are perfect,
15 He abandoned the God who made him and rejected the Rock his Savior.
18 You deserted the Rock, who fathered you;
30 How could one man chase a thousand,or two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them
31 For their rock is not like our Rock,
Why a rock? Rocks are strong. They can be unbreakable. They are used as building foundations and weapons. They can be used for warmth (take one out of the fire and put it in your bed … you’ll stay toasty). They’re used to hold things down, keep them in place.
Why not place your faith into the hands of one who describes Himself as a Rock?
Father let me accept Your invitation to take Your hand and stand on the rock that you are, being the foundation I need to make it through each days trials.
