Turn with me in your Bible to Psalm 62, verses 6 & 7,
as we see that "God Is Mine." God is the greatest
Person in my life, my greatest Possession, my greatest
Intimate, my greatest Friend. GOD IS MINE!
In these two verses we read the word "MY" seven
different times. Verse 6, "He only is my Rock and my
Salvation: He is my Defense; I shall not be moved."
Verse 7, "In God is my salvation and my glory: the
rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God."

Redeemer," says the Psalmist. Jesus Christ spoke to
Peter and said, "From now on your name, which has been
Simon, will be Peter which means 'a Rock'.” God is a
Rock in order that you may be a "little rock."
We look at life today in our society as unstable for
many. Look at the children today who go astray. Look
at children who become dope addicts, or ones who allow
liquor to take hold of their lives. They are hooked
before they know anything about it. Why? They are
unstable. They are not fixed. They go running after ...
