God’s Name: High Crag Where I Run For Dear Life
I love you, God— you make me strong.
God is bedrock under my feet,
the castle in which I live,
my rescuing knight.
My God—the high crag where I run for dear life.
Psalm 18:1-2 MSG
Steps on Your Journey to Know God More Intimately:
- Psalm 144:1-2 in The Message says, “Blessed be God, my mountain, who trains me to fight fair and well. He’s the bedrock on which I stand, the castle in which I live, my rescuing knight, The high crag where I run for dear life, while he lays my enemies low.”
- Merriam-webster.com defines crag as, “a steep rugged rock or cliff.”
- One of my favorite places to hike here in Colorado is called The Crags. It does have steep rugged rocks and cliffs. When you get to the top of the hike, you are on top of the mountain, on a huge solid rock. From there you can see for miles around.
- How is God like a High Crag? If you’re not sure, ask Him to show you.
- Do you run to God for dear life? If not, why not? If you do, what have you experienced when you’ve run to Him?
A Prayer for You:
God, thank You for being a High Crag where I can run for dear life. You are my protector. I’m so glad I can trust You no matter what may come into my life.
Blessings on you as you get to know God more intimately,
