For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God? 2 Samuel 22:32
All throughout the world there are many different religions that follow many different gods. With so many different ones, many people will question who is the real god. Along with following and worshipping false gods of the various religions, many people will make gods out things in an attempt to have a solid foundation in their lives.
People are constantly searching for who or what is in control of this life. Their foundation is constantly changing or being renewed as something different.
David sings a song of praise about God and asks the question of who is God and the Rock besides their Lord and God.
While many in the church claim to believe in Jesus, many do not actually allow Him to be Lord and their Rock in their lives. Instead of relying upon Jesus for everything, many will trust in their own strength, position, abilities, and others for what they need or want.
Being the Lord, means that He will be the absolute Master or controller of their lives. Anytime a decision is to be made, the true believer will seek God to make the decision. When God tells them to do something, they will immediately obey without question or hesitation.
Along with being Lord, true believers will allow Jesus to be the Rock in their lives. This is a solid foundation on which they stand. It is on God and His word that they will base everything that they say and do. God and His word never change with the times and whims of the people but stays the same forever as a solid rock and foundation.
God is the only true Lord and solid Rock in this fallen world that will last for eternity.
Each day you must be willing to ask yourself who is Lord/Master over your life. Do not allow it to be yourself or anything of this world, whether other people or things. Make God your one true Lord.
Then stand upon Jesus and God’s word as the solid rock or foundation in your life. God and His word will never fail you or wash out in a flood of troubled times, but will remain solid through it all.
The things of this world will fail and disappear over time, but God and His word never will.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will stand upon God as your solid foundation; that you will trust in God alone; that you will base your entire life upon God’s word; and that you will see God’s hand at work in your life.
