Message of the Day: Put Your Entire Confidence in God, The Rock of Ages

Trust in the Lord forever,
For in Yah, the Lord, is everlasting strength
.” (Isaiah 26:4, NKJV)

Isaiah 26 is a continuation of the song of the preceding chapter. The “strong city” (v. 1), with God’s salvation as its protection, stands in contrast to the “lofty city” (v. 5), the stronghold of the wicked. It is a city for the righteous, an external dwelling place for those who have experienced the perfect peace that comes through complete trust in God.

Those who trust in God have stability and security, but those who trust in themselves are overthrown. God’s city stands for ever; the world’s city is smashed to the ground and trampled in the dust.

“Everlasting strength” in the original Hebrew translation is ‘The Rock of Ages.’ The idea is that, God is firm and unchangeable like an eternal rock; and that in him we find protection and defense for everlasting ages.

Let our confidence in God on no occasion fail. Let no calamity, no adversity, no persecution, no poverty, no trial of any kind, prevent us from putting our entire confidence in God, the Rock of Ages!
