When the rushing water pushes us, piling us up against the rock do we find our solace in the sturdiness of the rock? Do we see the respite from the river that has been pushing us to this point? Do we brace and face or do we turn and cling?
Much like those leaves, we may be piled up against a rock, having been pushed there by a raging current or rise in water and force. But are we seeing the rock for what it is? A foundation, a refuge, a firmness with which we can once again steady for the flow.
Reconsider where the river has pushed you to today. Has it piled you up on a firmament? Find solace in the Rock today. It is keeping you from being swept up into the river currently.
There is none holy like the Lord:
for there is none besides you;
there is no rock like our God.
1 Samuel 2:2 (ESV)
