In God is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Psalm 62:7
Almost since its founding in 1875, Prudential Financial Insurance Company has used the Rock of Gibraltar as its logo. Meaning, an investment with Prudential is as solid as the massive limestone mountain in Gibraltar. Indeed, “solid as the Rock of Gibraltar” signifies anything that is solid, dependable, and immovable.
The actual Rock of Gibraltar has stood for millennia on the southwestern tip of the Iberian Peninsula, overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar that separates Europe from Africa. It is nearly 1,400 feet high with a sheer face that illustrates the idea of “solid as a rock.” Such an image was common in biblical times—the psalmist pictured God as “my rock and my fortress and my deliverer” (Psalm 18:2). It’s easy to see why God would be pictured as a rock: He is strong, immovable, and affords protection to all who take refuge in Him. Thousands of years of carnage and culture have not moved the Rock of Gibraltar—nor have they moved our God.
God and His Word are the only immovable shelters in a world of uncertainty. Renew your trust in Him today and live an immovable life.
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand: all other ground is sinking sand. Edward Mote
