Daily Devotion: Who is a Rock?

Bible Reading: II Samuel 22:29-37

Key Verse: Verse 32- “For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God?"

Key Words: and who is a rock, save our God

The word rock symbolizes strength and power. So David asked, who is a rock (Who is our strength and power?) save our God (only Jehovah).

Voltaire, the French philosopher, was a pagan who cursed God. He believed that there was no God. He believed that thinking about God was an exercise for people of lower intellectual ability. Voltaire ridiculed the thought of God. But then as it goes for all men, it came time for him to die. He lay there on his deathbed desperately in need of God. He screamed and hollered. In fact, Voltaire’s nurse is recorded as saying that she never wanted to see another man die like Voltaire because this man died in agony, foaming at the mouth with hell looming before his eyes. Here was a man who cursed God and God’s Word.

Now, if you go over to his house today, it’s a Bible factory where they make Bibles that are sent around the world. God can take folk who cuss Him out and use the place they used to cuss Him out to write His Word and distribute it to other people. He is a God who can take evil and make it turn out for the good. God could take men who condemned Jesus to death, and then use their condemnation for our salvation. They can allow sinful men to pin Him to the cross so that you and I might be redeemed. So don’t get upset because evil men are doing evil things. Just tell your King to use His power to take their evil for your good. That’s the kind of God you have.

God’s power is unlimited. God’s power is potent. He is our Rock.

What to do:
✞ Take comfort in the Rock of your salvation.
