This is the song that comes to my mind when I read this psalm. When I get to verse 2 where it states “lead me to the rock”, for some reason I substitute it with “lead me to the cross”.
I guess vs. 2 also makes me think of this song. It states very specifically that God is our strong tower. Boy, strong towers were so important in David’s day. They provided safety, refuge, a fortress which could even be impregnable. That is what we want our God to be.
Isn’t it something how we are able to relate to music in a way that probably we can’t relate to in words. Everyone of us learns God’s truths in different ways. Some of us can only experience the lessons and the words will fall on our deaf ears. But music does something that at times words cannot express.
On Tuesday we were at Presbytery and the person who preached, Doug Good, shared this song with us. It is one that we sing in worship often.
Today is a song day. We are asking God to lead us to the cross, for Him to be our strong tower, which He is, and that He would sustain us even when we feel as if the waters have risen over our heads. Enjoy today!
