Hiding Place

Updated: Feb 24, 2022

To everyone who hunger and thirst for God's Presence. Take a sip of these enigmas.

“You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah” Psalm 32:7

The kindness and mercy of God toward the sin in our lives are depicted in Psalm 32. He didn't have to, but He chose to do so in order to bring us back to Himself. Like a kind Father, he took our sins upon himself and died on the cross. "For you died, and your past has been hidden with Christ in God," according to Colossians 3:3. Because Christ was judged on our behalf, this is the hiding place: the area where we aren't judged at all.

Pray that you will be able to hear the songs of deliverance that the Psalmist promises God has prepared for you to hear. You are no longer tied by addictions, disappointments, or false accusations that keep you from being united with Jesus Christ. Put your trust in Him.

What Is A Hiding Place?

Instead of having to flee from God, we now have the option of fleeing to God, our Hiding Place, and knowing that we are secure! An old story tells of a wagon train traversing the prairie, which came over a hill and was scared to find a prairie fire rushing in their way as they approached. It appeared as though they would be devoured by the flames in no time at all. The caravan's leader, on the other hand, rode to the back of the caravan and set fire to the dry grass behind them.

The same winds that blew the raging fire at them were also responsible for fanning this fire away from them. They were on their way to the burned-out area in minutes. In response to the increasing intensity of the heat and smoke, a small girl shouted out, "Are you sure we're safe?" When the wagon master replied, "Oh, absolutely," he meant that they were safe since they were standing where the fire had previously been!

Christ has borne the brunt of God's wrath, and if we "take shelter in Him," we will be protected for all of eternity as well (Ps 37:40-note). Keep in mind that those whom God keeps are always well kept. "Should storms of sevenfold thunder roll, And shake the globe from pole to pole; No fiery bolt could daunt my face, For Jesus is my HIDING PLACE." "Should storms of sevenfold thunder roll, And shake the globe from pole to pole; (From J Brewer)
