Clefts in the Rock, a custom fit

Just about a year ago I journeled short responsive thoughts to the hymn “He Hideth my Soul” and I’m including that journal entry below. The enduring truth of His abiding care grows more precious every day.

Just as His mercies and compassion are new every morning – and we know that they are freshly crafted to demonstrate His faithfulness in the challenges of each new day – so, too, are the places of shelter that He provides.

His clefts in the rock are …….
…… created by hands familiar with our individual yearnings and frailties.
…… carved out to specifically to reinforce our unique weakness and vulnerabilities.
…… custom fit for what each rotation of the world brings to us.
…… molded around us so that we are strategically protected and provided for.

As Spurgeon says in Feb 1 Morning and Evening:
Never shall my soul forget those chambers of fellowship where Thou hast unveiled Thyself to me. Had Moses his cleft in the rock, where he saw the train, the back parts of his God? We, too, have had our clefts in the rock, were we have seen the full splendors of the Godhead in the person of Christ.
Precious Lord Jesus, give us a fresh draught of thy wondrous love to begin this new (circumstance) with.

Almighty God, we are desperate for a cleft in the rock for this new day.

For He will hide me in His shelter in the day of trouble; He will conceal me under the cover of His tent; He will lift me high upon a rock.  Psalm 25:5

Lamentations 3:22, 23
Exodus 32:22
