How is God a rock? (Psalm 18:2; Psalm 18:31; Psalm 19:14) The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. (Psalm 18:2) For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God? (Psalm 18:31) May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. (Psalm 19:14, NIV) IS GOD A ROCK IN THE SAME SENSE THAT KING DAVID REFERRED TO IN Psalms 61:2?

I would say that different passages of Scripture liken God to a rock from the standpoints of strength, solidity, protection, and advantage. As a rock is massive and static, God is infinite and eternal (1 Kings 8:27; Psalm 90:2). As a rock is solid and unshifting, God is almighty (Revelation 1:8), holy (Isaiah 43:15), unchanging (James 1:17), and a firm foundation (Isaiah 28:16; Matthew 7:24-25). As a rock is impenetrable and unyielding, and thus useful as a refuge, God provides shelter and protection to those who rely on Him (Psalm 91:2). And as a rock offers a position of advantage because of its height and bulk, God is a fortress and resource in our fight against the efforts of the world, our flesh, and the devil (Psalm 18:2).
