Who Is Jesus?

Jesus is referred to many names in the Bible. In Isaiah 26:4, He is named the “Rock Eternal.” The verse says: “Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the rock eternal.”

When I think about Jesus as being the rock, I think about Him as being firm, steadfast, secure, powerful, solid, unswerving and true. When I think of Jesus as being the “rock eternal,” I think about Him as being true to His promises, certain of who He is.

He promises life abundantly, peace and security in the midst of trouble, and a secured place in heaven if the decision is made to follow Him, trusting and believing His promises. We are held up by His mighty power and He is the rock of all ages.

Psalm 139: 7 – 10 David says: “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens you are there; if I make my bed in the depths you are there; If I ride on the wings of dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me fast.”

Yes, He is worthy of our praise, faith and love and expectations of answered prayers. The Bible says to be thankful in all circumstances of life. Who feels like praising God when we find ourselves in the heavy trials of life? Very few perhaps but our faith allows us to trust no matter what the circumstances are and since Jesus promised that He will never leave us or forsake us, we can learn to rely on Him for strength and guidance. We learn to trust and acquire faith; we learn to lean on the solid rock!

Take a look at 2 Samuel 22:1 – 4 to discover that He is a personal God?

My rock,
My deliverer,
My source of salvation
My stronghold,
My Savior.

Praise God he is a personal rock!

“From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” (Psalm 61)

For daily need there is daily grace, for sudden need there is sudden grace, and for overwhelming need there is overwhelming grace!

Who is Jesus? He is the rock that is higher than I.
He knows my needs and yours.

May we all learn to place our trust in Him in all circumstances of life!
