Psalm 61: 1-4: “Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For You have been a shelter for me, a string tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.” The imagery of God as a Rock for the believer was introduced by Moses and is developed elsewhere in the Psalms. The idea of God as one’s shelter or refuge is seen in a number of passages in the Psalms. Such verses present the psalmist’s strong affirmation of the protection and deliverance to be found in God.
