Key Verse: 2 Samuel 22:2
And he said: “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer…”
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord Jesus, I run into Your loving arms. You are my Rock, my Fortress, and my Deliverer. Keep me, I pray, from foolish human pride which would make me think, even for a moment, that I can go it alone. In Your strong Name, Jesus, I ask for Your grace 24/7, Amen!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
David burst into song when he realized all God had done for him. I’ve done the same just now. As I sing, “Rock of Ages, cleft for me. Let me hide myself in Thee,” I think of my dear friend, George Beverly Shea, who earlier this week, at the age of 104, went into the immediate presence of his Rock, his Fortress and his Deliverer, the Lord Jesus. George, or Bev, as he became known, was raised in Canada’s capital region and was a graduate of Annesley College in Ottawa, where my parents served. As Billy Graham’s soloist, he has probably sung to more people in person than any one else (click here to hear him sing about “The Solid Rock”). I can never read 2 Samuel 22 without also singing a children’s song, the words taken from this Scripture, and the music composed by my son-in-law, Bruce Stacey. My great-grandchildren began singing this when they were two years old (click here for the God Rocks team singing “The Lord is my Rock”).
Yours, singing for joy at the knowledge that “He is my Rock,”
P.S. You can see a one-hour special Saturday night on CTS TV at 9 p.m. It’s a documentary on George Beverly Shea. I had the honour of being the narrator for the show. Up until last year, George watched the 100 Huntley Street telecast daily on his computer in his home in North Carolina. If you cannot watch the special on CTS (over the air, cable, or satellite signal), then you can watch it online. It will be streamed online at the same time it is being broadcast…9:00 p.m. EST. It will be available on the CTS website at www.ctstv.com (you can watch a preview of it right now). Tell everyone about this, and join me tomorrow night.
