Jesus, my rock and fortress

In You, O LORD, I put my trust;
Let me never be put to shame.
Deliver me in Your righteousness, and cause me to escape;
Incline Your ear to me, and save me. Be my strong refuge,
To which I may resort continually;
You have given the commandment to save me,
For You are my rock and my fortress.
PSALM 71:1-3

In our trust in the Lord, there is not shame. We make a conscious decision to follow the Lord through our submission to Jesus Christ who is our Advocate to the Father. We need to trust that He is our Advocate and Savior and that we are set apart from the rest of the world in Him.

We are saved and take refuge from a harsh world and there is no shame in our commitment.

We are in a world that can hold tightly on our soul and mind. So much so, that escape is necessary as if in a prison. Being separated from God is being held captive to that which is fleeting. His ear hears our call as we plea for help, forgiveness, guidance, and salvation. He hears, He sees,

He is righteous – cry out for Him.

God is our Rock, our Cornerstone, and the foundation of our life. We have safety in His fortress. That is our trust and our hope. He came as a man and God so we would know – so we would have the chance to hear and see the living God. Not all will see or hear Him. Some will cause us to feel shame because of our commitment. Rise above all that is of the world and seek the treasures in heaven given by our Lord who has an ear to hear the bleating of we who are lambs who need not be sacrificed because Jesus already covers us all with His blood. He awaits us now.

LORD, You are my rock and foundation of my life. In You I put my trust. I resort to You continually – today and forever. I pray in Jesus’ name, AMEN

  1. AMEN! Jesus IS my Rock and my Salvation. Whom shall I fear. He is my strength when mine is failing. He is always there to take my right hand.
