As for the Rock

Rising Joy, by Vicki Matheny

As for the Rock, his work is perfect, for all his ways are just. He is a reliable God who is never unjust, he is fair and upright. Deuteronomy 32.4

This verse is found in a song that Moses recited to the whole assemble of Israel shortly before his death. His description of God is faithfulness.

He referred to God as the Rock. A rock is solid and firm. It was the foundation sometimes used in construction. It is steadfast. In 1 Samuel 2.2, Hannah prayed, “No one is holy like the Lord! There is no one other than you! There is no rock like our God!”

God is perfect. He is complete. All his work is perfect. On the sixth day of the creation, Genesis 1.31, God saw all that he had made and it was very good!

Moses stated that God is reliable, fair and does what is right. It is very reassuring to have someone reliable on our side. We know that as long as we are faithful to him, we can count on his care for us.

It is comforting, in these times of uncertainty and corruptness, to know that God is just and that he is good to his people.
