Drinking from the Rock that is higher than I.

Posted by appolus on October 25, 2022

1Co 10:4 ……. for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. 

Jesus is the Rock that is with us. Even in the wilderness, especially in the wilderness, He is the Rock that never leaves us nor forsakes us. He causes the cloud to cover us from the searing heat of our trials and tribulations, and He causes the fire to light up the night so that we may see our way through and not be overcome by the cold. He leads us and He guides us in the ways that we should go. He waters our thirsty souls and feeds our spirits where there seems to be no water and there seems to be no food. Not only do we survive in these conditions, we begin to thrive. Our circumstances may be unstable in all their ways, but the Rock beneath our feet immovable. Our lot in this life may be poor in comparison to the earthly riches of this world, but we are rich in the treasures of heaven and of the Kingdom to come. We store up our spiritual riches here in this world that we may be rich in the things that are important to God in the next.

You would think that all who were offered such gifts from heaven would thrive. Yet, even in the most difficult of circumstances, where it would seem natural to reach out and take the hand of God, so many turn this hand away. They complain and they grumble and are disobedient to the God that they know. They desire in their heart to return to where they came from, like the dog returning to its vomit. Imagine desiring to be enslaved just so you knew where you next crumbs were coming from? Rather than continuing to trust the God who has helped you over and over again and in whom you have witnessed His delivering power. We who stand should always take heed lest we fall. A heart full of thanksgiving, one that is obedient to follow His lead is a heart that thrives even in the harshest desert. And if we can do this in the wilderness, just imagine what we shall do in the land to come that shall be overflowing with milk and honey.

    “For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried. Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins. Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.” Ps. 66:10-12

    The wealthy place is the result of our going through the trials of life… not the result of untested teachings.
