Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

Jesus, my Rock & Redeemer

Psalm 71:1-6 NLT

[1] O LORD, I have come to you for protection; don’t let me be disgraced.

[2] Save me and rescue me, for you do what is right. Turn your ear to listen to me, and set me free.

[3] Be my rock of safety where I can always hide. Give the order to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.

[4] My God, rescue me from the power of the wicked, from the clutches of cruel oppressors.

[5] O Lord, you alone are my hope. I’ve trusted you, O LORD, from childhood.

[6] Yes, you have been with me from birth; from my mother’s womb you have cared for me. No wonder I am always praising you!

Reflection . . .

The Psalms look to their fulfillment in Jesus Christ in everything they speak about! So when the Psalmist writes about God being our rock and our redeemer, we look to Jesus who is the complete fulfillment of God’s glory.

In Him we find . . .

  • Verse 1: Protection & Honour
  • Verse 2: Salvation, Justice & Freedom
  • Verse 3: Safety & Fortress
  • Verse 4: Rescue from Evil
  • Verse 5: Hope & Confidence
  • Verse 6: Faithfulness & Care

As you watch the video below, take some time to pray and give praise to the Lord for all that we find in Him!
