You are My Hiding Place

March 25, 2021

We used to sing this song all the time in our worship services back in Missouri:

"You are my hiding place

You always fill my heart

With songs of deliverance

Whenever I am afraid

I will trust in You

I will trust in You

Let the weak say I am strong

In the strength of the Lord"

Psalm 32:6-8 (KJV)

6 "For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.

7 "Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.

8 "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye."

I will continue to hide myself in the secret place that God has provided for me. My God is a good God, and He has filled my heart with gladness. When I look at Verse 8, He says that He will instruct and teach me in the way that I should go, and that He will guide me with His eyes. This fills my heart with songs. 

When I ask the Lord for direction He always answers me. Praise God! He has never left me in a place where the enemy could destroy me because He protects me. At the end of Verse 7, he uses the word “Selah," which means to take a moment to pause, and think about what was just said. 

“You are my hiding place...” “Selah!"

Father, I am ever mindful of how You protect me and keep me in Your secret place. I pray for my friends that are going through tough times in their lives, that You will cover them with Your mercy. That you will continue to teach them how to walk in Your ways with understanding, and that all fear will be taken  away from them. In Jesus's name, Amen.

Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come.
