“He’s the Rock, and His work is perfect; everything He does is right. He’s the God who can be trusted, who never does wrong because He’s righteous and upright.” Deuteronomy 32:4 The Voice
This is the first time that God is referred to as “the rock” in the Old Testament. It is used 6 times in this chapter. I think God is trying to make a point! So what does that mean?
- God is a rock: He is an impenetrable shelter. An everlasting foundation. When we operate according to His principles, they cannot be shaken. A very safe place!
- God’s works are perfect: Jesus is perfection. His life is our model.
- Everything God does is right: Nothing He does can be changed. What He starts He will finish.
- God can be trusted: He is faithful. We can rely on Him. He cannot lie. He keeps His promises.
1 Samuel 2:2, Psalm 18:2, Psalm 62:7
