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)
