ROCK

Risen Omnipotent Crucified King

Have you ever heard the phrase, “hitting bottom?” Hitting bottom is when you have reached your lowest point in your particular circumstances. Even though this phrase has its origins in the field of chemical dependency, many of us can identify with being in a predicament that seems to have no positive resolution. It seems you have nowhere to go and no way out. All is dark, and you see no solution. It brings to mind another idiom.

 

Another well-known description of distress is thought of as, ”caught between a rock and a hard place.” Most of the time we want to avoid these types of incidences; but let me offer a different spin on this familiar adage.

I used to think of a rock and a hard place as an existence that was futile and unsolvable until one day I came across a thought provoking greeting card. The card said, ”When you are between a rock and a hard place, choose the Rock!” A rock is something steady, solid, and secure. I can attribute these same characteristics to Christ. The Rock that the card was referring to is our heavenly Father. I look at my Rock as my Risen Omnipotent Crucified King. The Bible makes this illustration much better than I can.

Psalms 62:2

He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress. I will never be shaken.

II Samuel 22:2-3

… “The Lord alone is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock in whom I take refuge…”

Isaiah 26:4

Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord is the Rock eternal.

Hitting bottom enters most everyone’s life in some form, and in many cases we will experience the metaphorical squeeze between two difficult options more than once in our life times. So the next time you or a friend is in the middle of something that appears to be unsolvable, be reminded that help is close at hand. The hard places may not have the solution that one needs, but the Rock sure will. The Rock can take us from …

Despair to Deliverance

Disappointment to Delight

Dull to Dazzling

Destruction to Discovery

Darkness to Dawn

Dislocation to your Destiny

Deterioration to Determination

Disillusionment to Direction

Disbelief to Discernment

Down-trodden to Dynamic

Christ can make all the difference in one’s life. If you know Jesus as you Risen Omnipotent Crucified King, be not dismayed. We will all face challenges in which the assistance of a qualified earthly professional can be beneficial. In some cases, it is a struggle in a marriage, finances, substance abuse, personal/spiritual contemplations. In your case, the challenge may present itself in an entirely different form. When the next struggle comes into your life, know your options. When you have hit your bottom and you are between a rock and a hard place, choose the ROCK!

 

New International Version

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

Psalms 18:2

More about Scottie Moore
I love words, but more importantly I love The Word. Being able to offset my college instruction time with writing is great fun for me. I find poetry, acrostics, homophones, and dictionaries are intriguing. Combining my father’s love for gospel music and my mother’s background as an English teacher are two of the key factors that have contributed to my style of writing.
