“Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in thy tabernacle forever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.” Psalm 61:1-4
We cannot handle this world on our own. If we try, we will surely find ourselves overwhelmed and eventually overcome. The good news is, that in Christ, we never have to face anything in this world alone. God is always with us. He will never leave us. He hears our cries in all circumstances. Call on His name. He will never let you down, He will provide a way out of temptation. He will protect you from evil. He will be your comfort in tribulation. He will be your strength in weakness. He will be your joy in sorrow. Stand up, confident on the Solid Rock that will not fall. Christ is the rock that is higher than us. He will never crumble. He will always be a firm foundation to build your faith upon. Abide in Him. He will bring you up higher. He will bring you to the Father.
