Higher Than All Of Us

1

Habakkuk’s life is tough.

And it’s about to get tougher.

But Pastor Derek reminded us Sunday Habakkuk had a Rock, Habakkuk 1.12.

And Pastor Matt prompted us to praise The Rock.

God.

I love King David’s own experience and calling us to The Rock. (And David knew something about troubles, 1 Samuel 18-31 for instance.)

"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."

Psalm 61.1-12

Our God is higher than all of us. Unshakeable. Beautiful.

How about sharing your praise for the The Rock?

And--His ways are mysterious!

I loved the reminder in a past sermon by Pastor Gary: Is our faith in how we HOPE God will answer our prayers--or is our faith in the goodness of God and what He has ACTUALLY PROMISED He will do? If our faith is in our own hopes for answered prayers, we will be disappointed. If Habbakuk's faith was in God not sending an evil people to discipline his own, then Habbakuk would surely have been disappointed. It's good to be reminded that God is not obligated to answer my prayers or solve my problems the way I think He should. God is only obligated to be true to His Word; i.e., that He will work all things for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. Praise God--He is the Rock, our only hope, and He is faithful!
