Jesus - The Rock

Something I have keep seeing at the moment is Jesus as the Rock.  Something and someone in which cannot be moved no matter what comes against it.  There is just such a strength, a stability, a force to be reakoned with, an immovability and it is encouraging me that no matter what is going on in my world there is strength in knowing that Jesus is my rock.
2 Sam 22:2 says "The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer.  The God of my strength in whom I trust.  My shield and the horn of my salvation.  My stronghold and my refuge.....v47  The Lord lives!  Blessed be my Rock!  Let God be exalted, the Rock of my salvation."

Psalm 61:2 "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."

I am thankful and reminded again that He is my strength and the one sure stable thing that never changes admist all the change around.  God is the same, yesterday, today and forever, He is higher than I, higher than my circumstance, higher than everything that is coming at me and that as I learn to trust him, he leads me by those still waters, the places of safety and refreshing, those places where I can feast in the midst of whatever is going on around me.
