Psalm 61:2 - Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I...

NIV From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
KJV From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

David needed a rock of protection, one that was higher than his troubles, a divine protection. He was physically and emotionally drained, so he cried out to the "rock that is higher than I", knowing this was a place of safety with God. David was not literally at the end of the earth, but he was in a place where safety and deliverance seemed obscure.

We've all walked, or will walk, through days of despair. During those days, weeks, or years, we must cling to God or sink further into desperation. Cling to the Rock through your days of trouble and He will grant you peace.

John 14:23-24 - If anyone loves Me, he will obey My teaching

NIV Jesus replied, "If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me."
KJV Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.

True love of God is exhibited in a life of obedience to His Word. James 1:22 says, "Do not merely listen to the Word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says."

Jesus never had His own agenda. From the amazing miracles He performed, to the words He spoke, He was about the Father in everything He did. Jesus is the ultimate example of love and obedience.

The all powerful God invites us to know Him intimately through our love and obedience to Him. He promises to dwell within us if we do so. Do we have our own agenda or His agenda today?
