God is My Fortress and Strength

Location: Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach

Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach is a landmark. It has literally been a presence for visitors for centuries. Despite the relentless pounding of the waves and whipping of the wind, it has remained as a clear point of reference, undiminished in its invitation to admirers. It stands as a symbol of strength, despite all the forces that pummel it.

Our lives are as exposed to the ‘elements’ as Haystack Rock. If we do not have an internal strength offered by God’s gracious presence, life can wear us down. Psalm 46 is a wonderful reminder that God is our refuge and strength and it invites us to be still before God. In this posture, we receive God’s strength and this is what others can see.

God is our Rock. And if we’re still, we can reflect. Reflect on His presence in our lives. And reflect Jesus’ love throughout His walk on earth.
