This Week, Worship Our Lord As . . .

ROCK OF ISRAEL (Eh-ven Yis-rah-el)

"But his bow remained steady, his strong arms stayed [a] limber, because of the hand of the Mighty One of Jacob, because of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel, because of your father's God, who helps you." (Genesis 49:24,25a NIV)

Dear God,

You are the only One who makes my hands strong. I shall not trust in my energy, brains, resources, contacts or anything else. I shall trust in You, Rock of Israel. What a mighty defense You are! You have done it before for me, and You will do it again.
