Psalms 62:2 -- On God as our Rock

"He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved."
Psalms 62:2

I love the idea here of not being moved.  God is our center, our core... our home.  And no one can pull us away from that place we belong.  We can choose to leave, of course, but just like God's hope is an anchor to our souls (Hebrews 6:19; Ether 12:4), God's solidity, strength, and stability in our lives will always be there when we need it, and if we hold to it with all that we are.

That isn't to say, of course, that we won't change if we stick with God.  If fact, we will change.  God wants us to reach our potential and to grow into more than we could ever hope to be, or probably even comprehend yet.  He isn't a rock that chains us in a prison, but one that shelters us and gives us confidence that we can weather any storm, and always find our way.

Today, let's trust in God's strength and solidity.  Let's have faith that with him, we can face whatever comes, and still be okay.  And with that confidence and companionship, let's be willing to go out into the world and try new things, and learn a lot, help and serve others, and strive to reach that potential.
