Day 128- Richmond, Virginia: Our Rock
As we prepare for our journey with God we are packing our bags in preparation for the big day that is upcoming tomorrow. Everyday is a blessing and as we begin to wind down from today, we are getting ourselves ready either consciously or subconsciously. When we go on a trip what do we usually pack in our suitcase, a toiletry kit, undergarments, cold or hot weather clothes depending on where we are going, etc. As we walk with God we are doing the same things except we are not packing a physical bag, rather we are a preparing our heart, mind, and soul for God’s use.
The main way that we prepare ourselves psychologically through our relationship with Jesus is by expressing our appreciation and love to our Lord and Savior through our prayers. The grind of life can beat us down and that is when we need God as the “Rock” of our lives in the same way that a flower needs water to grow. Without our energy source from God we do not have a purpose and lose focus, which usually sends us walking in circles in a panic considering how we will make it.
Crying our to God and expressing our desires is not a bad thing as we are getting “ready” for what is to come next. Maybe we all need a better point of reference to fully understand this concept that comes from Psalm: “A Psalm of David the servant of the LORD, who spoke to the LORD the words of this song in the day that the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul”, as He said “I love You, O LORD, my strength.” The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold”. God is not only helping us prepare for the day ahead with Him by our side, but also He is our refuge when we think we cannot take another step forward.
