Everything around us is moving, isn’t it? A week ago we had been sitting on fewer than 2 new coronavirus cases a day in Croatia for over a month. Although we all knew a second wave could start any time, you’re not ready for it when it happens. Yesterday, 20 new cases. Today, 90+ already.
How is this going to affect our plans for the summer, for next week…for tomorrow?
Things are swirling.
There are protests and riots in the States. Mexico is trying to recover from a devastating earthquake. The coronavirus is wreaking havoc around the world. Lebanon‘s currency is tanking among nationwide protests. Mass graves have been discovered in Libya. And this is just from a few of today’s news headlines.
We all have stuff spinning around us. Life is so fluid, so difficult to grasp, so vaporous.
That’s why the biblical description of God as a rock is so helpful.
I need a rock. Don’t you?
Someone who doesn’t move when everything else does. Someone who is solid, strong, and stable. Someone who can save us from the fluidity of the world we live in.
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.Psalm 62:2
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock in whom I take refuge.Psalm 18:2
Be to me a rock of refuge, to which I may continually come; you have given the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.Psalm 71:3
