Water from the Rock

Adonai Lives,
Blessed be my rock.    --Psalm 18:47(46)

You will need to look very close at these photos to see Mt. Fuji, but it is there.
A huge mountain but in the photos only a tiny bit of the top of the mountain is visible over the clouds from the airplane to Tokyo.

I have taken this trip many times over many years and have come to be able to spot Mt. Fuji even if it appears just as a spot.  Looking at this view I connected to the week"s reading of where Moses was asked by God to speak to the rock to bring forth water for the children of Israel.  Instead, Moses hit the rock.  Because he did not trust in ADONAI so as to sanctify Him in front of the children of Israel, he was not able to bring the Children of Israel into the promised Land.  (Numbers 20:1~13).  

Seeing all the water almost spilling forth in this scene, and the huge "rock" of Mt. Fuji that was there, and yet barely visible, made me think of these scriptures and  the importance of obeying God's voice and sanctifying His name in our hearts and lives.

For who is God but ADONAI?
Who is a Rock but our God?      ---Psalm 18:32 (31) 


  1. Amen, thank you Sandi and have a blessed week!

  2. Thinking of Mt. Fuji as the rock, is quite a vivid imagination on your part.

    1. Thank you Duta :)) Your comment makes me smile!
      I saw Mt. Fuji again on the way home by plane from another trip to Tokyo, I was there twice in the recent weeks (probably will post something about the trip)!! And that time Mt. Fuji appeared much more clear and big, but just for a split second, so I couldn`t photograph this time. The great mountain/rock in the clouds!! Hope you have a blessed week.

  3. I've always loved photos of Mt. Fuji. I've never seen it in person. When I look at mountains so many verses of scripture come alive. I'm glad it's that way for you too. Blessings.

  4. Glad to hear that Joyful! Hope you might come to Japan and see Mt. Fuji one day. Yes, so exciting when the verses of scripture come alive! You must have majestic mountains there where you are!! I climbed Mt. Fuji once. It was amazing. Always exciting to catch a glimpse of it from the train or the plane or the land....!! Blessings!♡
