MY ROCK AND MY SHEPHERD

Psalms 28:1-9
We read in the Bible that no man has seen God at any time but several times we see Him portrayed to us as a rock.  David, in verse 1, refers to the Lord as my Rock.  In Psalms 1:1 David declares in a I think a very personal way, “The Lord is my Shepherd” and here he declares The Lord is my Rock.  What a blessing it would be to understand both of these deeply as David did.  There is uncertainty as to what time in David’s life this Psalm was written but this way of referring to the Lord as a rock was a definite thing in David’s life.  David’s words in 2 Samuel 22:47; “The Lord lives!  Blessed be my Rock!  Let God be exalted, The Rock of my salvation!”  Quoting Riddle, ‘The title “Rock” indicates immovability and strength as opposed to the uncertainty and weakness of idolatry.  It is a divine title.”  God’s names and titles are one of the ways we learn of Him and show our reverence for Him and I think David sets a good example for us to follow.  
The last two to three years have been a difficult time for my family now spanning four generations as the youngest; Mylah Rae Harp lay comatose and unable to respond until she went peacefully into the Lord’s preference on May 18, 2020.  Several days ago in my daily reading I came to the verse below which I am committing to memory.  It also speaks of The Rock and I think provides us with understanding, hope and encouragement.  
Deuteronomy 32:4 He is the Rock,--- His work is perfect,--- For all His ways are justice,--- A God of truth and without injustice;--- Righteous and upright is He.
