The Rock That Is Higher Than I
click above to play 2-min devotion
Hear my cry, O God;
listen to my prayer.
From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the foe.
I long to dwell in your tent forever
and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
For you, God, have heard my vows;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
Dear Father, I am greatly strengthened and secure because anytime, anywhere, in any condition I can call to Jesus, the Rock That is Higher Than I, and He is listening. I am so grateful that He is always higher and stronger and wiser than me or anyone or anything that threatens to overcome me. He cleansed me of ALL my sin and hopelessness. He is all-powerful, all-knowing, all-present and eternal. I confess that sometimes I have not been willing or able to cry out to Him in times of need, so I pray that Your Spirit will always lead me to the Rock That is Higher Than I, and help me climb upon Him and cling to Him. Please help me, my family members and an increasing number of His other followers to know more and more about the Solid Rock, so we will become completely dependent upon Him. And, I pray that You will lead millions of unbelievers—who really have nothing for their faint hearts—to Jesus. I ask these things in His “more-than-able” name. Amen.
