Who But Our God Is a Solid Rock

Psalm 18:30-36 – God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. For who is God except the Lord? Who but our God is a solid rock? God arms me with strength, and he makes my way perfect. He makes me as surefooted as a deer, enabling me to stand on mountain heights. He trains my hands for battle; he strengthens my arm to draw a bronze bow. You have given me your shield of victory. Your right hand supports me; your help has made me great. You have made a wide path for my feet to keep them from slipping.

    A very encouraging scripture today, Carol. Your image is a very unusual rock formation. It would be interesting to see time-lapse photography of how it came to be. Wouldn’t it be great if there were home movies and slideshows in Heaven and we could watch history since time began?

    • I think we will do all that and more. Who knows. Our great almighty God may show us His mighty works in real time! We have eternity to spend doing whatever He has planned. I know we won’t be disappointed.

      Thanks for stopping by and for your interesting comment. I, too, thought that was an unusual rock formation. Blessings to you, Patti…

  2. Few know “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” was written by Martin Luther 500 years ago

    • I know “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” and I love it. It’s a beautiful song that is often sung in Lutheran churches. When I was a child, there was a Lutheran church across the street from my grandparent’s house. My grandmother sent my sister and I to the church. Instead of Sunday School, I would often detour to the adult service. I was quiet and was never asked to leave. That’s where I heard the song. My grandmother didn’t attend, but when we were visiting her on the weekends, the Lutheran church was part of it for us. I’ll always love that song. It is also occasionally sung by the choir in my Baptist church.

      Thank you for your comment. Blessings to you, Carl…

    Reminds me of Psalm 91:2-3 “I will say of the Lord He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him will I trust. Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler and from the noisome pestilence.” Thanks for the post Carol! Be blessed!

  5. A favorite scripture. Have you ever counted how many times the word “Rock” has been used in reference to God and/or Jesus Christ in the BIble? Great metaphor of an aspect of God’s character.

    You might enjoy the song, “Jesus is a Rock in a weary land.” I will send it to your e-mail if you give me your e-mail addy.

    I wish you enough. . .

    • I’ve never counted how many times, but I read the Bible constantly, and the reference is all over the scriptures, especially in the Psalms. I am very familiar with “Jesus is a Rock in a Weary Land.” It’s a beautiful old hymn. My email address is carolannhoel@gmail.com. I cannot remember all of the lyrics, but I remember the tune.

      Thank you for your comment, Paula. Blessings to you…

    I love knowing God as my Rock…my Shield, my Fortress, a Mighty Tower…(as you might guess, I appreciate feeling safe…)

    I love these verses…and here it is in The Message:
    30 What a God! His road
    stretches straight and smooth.
    Every God-direction is road-tested.
    Everyone who runs toward him
    Makes it.

    31-42 Is there any god like God?
    Are we not at bedrock?
    Is not this the God who armed me,
    then aimed me in the right direction?
    Now I run like a deer;
    I’m king of the mountain.
    He shows me how to fight;
    I can bend a bronze bow!
    You protect me with salvation-armor;
    you hold me up with a firm hand,
    caress me with your gentle ways.
    You cleared the ground under me
    so my footing was firm.

    blessings,
    jane

    • I like the reading these verses in The Message. Cool! Thanks for taking time to type it in. Others may enjoy reading it as well. I like to feel safe, too. And I do. God is so mighty, so completely strong, mightier than any adversary, Creator of the universe! We know He will keep us safe. Even in troubles, our God is in control. Even in death, we are safe in passage to Eternity Blessed where faith becomes sight at last.

      Your enthusiasm for the LORD is exciting and contagious! You are setting the world on fire, good fire. Holy Spirit fire! 🙂 Blessings to you, Jane…

    I so agree with you. God is our true shelter and God’s way are perfect, its we human beings that meddle with it and then try to call it as God’s actions.
