He Is My Rock.
Psalm 62:6 KJV: “He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defense; I shall not be moved.”

As we pondered in prayer about God’s word to His people for the coming year, 2024, the Lord revealed to us through a dream that “Jesus is My Rock.” In the dream, two young adult women were in a classroom writing affirmations such as “I heal myself” and “A powerful aura of energy and light surrounds me” on a large chalkboard. As I sat in the teacher’s chair, the Holy Spirit said, “Tell them that I am their Rock, and I am the only affirmation they need.” He further instructed me to “write it on the board,” which I did—end of the dream.

In short, this revelation emphasized that our trust should not be in humanistic and self-centered affirmations, or “name it and claim it,” but instead, our trust should be in the “Rock of Ages”—the One who is faithful, righteous, and the source of our strength. We are to declare the goodness of the Lord and affirm what is true in Scripture and how it applies to our lives.

The term “sela” in Hebrew, which translates to “rock,” is used to describe a fortress built into a rock. In ancient times, people would seek refuge in a “sela” or a fortress, especially one built into a cleft or an opening made by a split in the mountain. This was considered one of the safest places to hide.

In a literal sense, a “cleft” refers to an opening or crack, particularly in a rock or on the ground. A cleft in a rock can provide shelter and protection from the elements or potential threats, similar to how a fortress would in ancient times. Thus, the concept of a “cleft of the rock” can be seen as a metaphor for finding solace and safety amidst the storms of life by seeking refuge in a secure and stable place.

The phrase “cleft of the rock” in the Bible: In the book of Exodus, the phrase “cleft of the rock” is used when God tells Moses, “While my glory passes by, I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with my hand” (Exodus 33:22). This signifies a place of divine protection and safety, demonstrating God’s nurturing nature. The “cleft of the rock” is thus associated with the presence of God and His protective care.

This is a metaphor for Jesus Christ, symbolizing His eternal presence, strength, stability, and protection. Jesus, through His sacrifice, provides salvation and eternal life to believers.

King David, a man after God’s own heart, expressed his deep faith in God, his Rock, salvation, and defense in many of his psalms. For example, Psalm 62:6 KJV says, “He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defense; I shall not be moved.” David is steadfast in his faith, relying on God’s strength and protection amidst trials. Similarly, Psalm 92:15 KJV says, “To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.” This verse is a declaration of faith in God’s unwavering nature. It encourages reliance on God, the Rock, for strength and stability. It assures that the Lord is always truthful, faithful, strong, stable, pure, and righteous.

As we enter the new year, these verses remind us to put our trust in the “Rock,” who is the Lord. Rather than relying on humanistic and self-centered affirmations or other unstable grounds, we should anchor our faith in the Rock, the unshakeable, unmovable foundation. This trust in the Lord will provide us strength, stability, and protection throughout the coming year. This is a message, we believe, the Lord wants to impart to His people for the year 2024.

May you have victory in HIM today!
