Mountain Moving Monday: Rock

Monday, March 03, 2014

He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.” (Psalm 62:2)

Word Study: Rock

The original meaning of rock in this verse is taken from the Hebrew word Tsur, which means boulder, sharp rock, refuge, mighty One, stone of security, strength.

Let’s look at the word rock in the scripture above to see how it applies to our lives.

Loss sometimes makes us feel weak. We become weak in the knees. We get weak stomachs. Our hearts even become weak when we’re grieving something or someone who has been taken from us.

Weakness that comes from loss is a mountain that could stand to be moved from our lives.

The scripture says, “He only is my rock.” God is a rock more solid than a mountain of weakness, and because it is inevitable that we’ll face loss, He has secured Himself as a source of strength during our seasons of grief.

In our weakness, we have a rock who is able to move us away from our misery.
In our weakness, we have a rock who is able to lift us from our losses.
In our weakness, we have a rock who is able to strengthen us when we’re suffering.

We’re often told to “be strong” during times of loss, yet our strength should lie completely in the rock, our stone of security. There's no way we can get through what we're going through without the ROCK. When we think of how weak we feel when we experience hard times, remember God's strength is made perfect in our weakness. We don't have to muddle through the mourning alone. He may not take away the loss, but He will definitely give us the might we need as we manage to cope through it.


Father, when we suffer loss in our lives we feel weak. We feel weak and lost and many times confused. Through our weakness you fill us with your strength and we are thankful for your incessant measure of might. It helps us to make it through days when all we can do is cry and shake our heads in disbelief. God, we pray that you help us gather and collect ourselves daily as we fight through the pain of loss. Lord, we need your comfort and we seek your strength now, more than ever. In the mighty name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

How will the rock move mountains today?
