Jesus Is Our Rock

“When my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For You have been a shelter for me, a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah (Pause and think about this).” Psalm 16:3-4, NKJV

Did you know that the word “overwhelmed” means “to pour down upon and bury beneath?” Think about this for a minute…. When we are experiencing overwhelming obstacles we often feel anxious and as if something heavy is resting on our chest. When we feel overwhelmed it is as if our problems are pouring down on us and we are buried beneath them. Anyone else been there?

BUT according to the scripture above, when our emotions and thoughts overwhelm us, Jesus(The Rock) is higher than our circumstances! He can take us from overwhelmed to overflowing! He can show us His viewpoint on our situation and guide us on what to do. Jesus and His Word is our shelter from the enemy and in Him we can trust! He is a Rock that is stable and can handle any situation that comes our way.

No matter what you are experiencing right now -Jesus wants to lead you to The Rock (His Word) that is higher than yourself and your circumstances! He can pull you up from the state of being underneath your circumstances to a place high above the earth through His Word! We do not have to live our lives overwhelmed! Jesus is our Rock and He is greater and above ALL circumstances here on earth!

Lord, I commit every overwhelming circumstance in my life to your this day. I entrust my emotions to you and declare that you are greater than my emotions and thoughts and know ALL things. I ask that you lead me to see my problems from Your viewpoint which is above and not beneath. Thank you for being my refuge and shelter this day. You are everything I need. I praise you for being my ALL THAT! Amen.

  4. He is ALL that! What a great reminder that we need to go to His word to find the contrary about our circumstance, and marinate in it for a good long time in prayer, study and thought. I need to hear my own words! 😉 Blessings…
