Isaiah 12:2a
‘Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.’

David knew one thing for sure and that was that God was the Rock on which he could rely and stand firm. He may have been shaken and rattled by the magnitude of his situation and circumstances, but he knew that there was a Rock. He knew that God was faithful, and he knew that God was a Refuge in the time of storms. Our family comes from the Eastern Cape of South Africa. At a particular spot on the coast there stands a large rock that juts out into the sea. Legend has it that years ago a ship ran aground in the area. The survivors decided to walk back to Europe following the coastline. Fortunately for them they spotted a passing boat and climbed up this exposed rock and managed to alert the boat to their presence and they were rescued. In the process they were spared what would have been a certain death trying to walk back to Europe. Had it not been for this rock they probably would never have been noticed and their fate would have been sealed. Had it not been for the Rock we have in God, we too would be lost, without hope. The problem is that sometimes in the storms of life that want to overwhelm us, it can be difficult to find the Rock we so desperately need. Our own doubts and fears can cloud our judgement. The Rock (God Himself), which we so desperately need in our lives, would be of little use to us if the Holy Spirit had not showed us which way to go and gently pushed us in His direction.
We are so prone to rely on ourselves and our own thoughts and plans that we need to be led to the Rock on Whom we can rest secure. Even if we are overwhelmed and can’t see the way clearly, His Holy Spirit can lead us to our Rock of refuge. So, David prayed this prayer: ‘Lord, lead me to the Rock!’ In essence he was saying: ‘Lord, I cannot do it on my own, help me to get to You and to be able to find my security and hope in You!’ Regardless of the storms that may be overwhelming you in your mind and in your heart, you can do what David did. You can cry out to the Lord from wherever you may find yourself and you can ask Him to bring you to that place of confidence and hope in Him and in His endless love and power.

Psalm 18:2‘The LORD is my Rock, my Fortress, and my Saviour; my God is my Rock, in Whom I find protection. He is my Shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.’
