Sermons on refuge
This image of God as our rock and refuge is prevalent in our psalm today. The psalmist implores God to be his strong rock, a castle to keep him safe, affirming that God is his crag and stronghold. I understand what that means after my scary traverse in the canyon last year. I understand the importance of finding a crag to hold onto, I understand the protection offered to me by that sturdy rock. I understand how much I wanted the rock I was hanging onto to be permanent, not permeable, to be solid and un-moveable. This is the God I also want and need, especially in times of trial.
