“My Hiding Place”
You are my hiding place; You protect me from trouble. You surround me with joyful shouts of deliverance. Psalm 32:7
King David faced MANY adversities in his life and his family. He fought battles of his beloved country, and he fought battles of his own making. But David KNEW in his HEART that he could run to God, and be safe from his enemies.
Oh, there were times when David had to face troubles, but he KNEW that the ALMIGHTY GOD was with him, and would eventually provide DELIVERANCE for him. Even though David sinned grievously against God, he was still a man after God’s own heart. And whenever he would CONFESS his sins and short-comings before God. God would DELIVER David from the GUILT of his transgressions.
And He, the Lord God, will do the same for those, who are His TRUE CHILDREN. When we fall short of God’s Will and have a DISOBEDIENT attitude towards Him and His Word, we like David, try to HIDE our transgressions, but it is IMPOSSIBLE, because God is ALL-KNOWING, He knows EVERYTHING we think, say or do, even BEFORE we THINK, SAY or DO it. And yet He waits, with OPEN ARMS, for us to come to Him and CONFESS our DISOBEDIENCE. Then He provides DELIVERANCE for us. Yet, we MUST FACE the CONSEQUENCES of our transgressions.
And like King David, we can CONFESS that the ALMIGHTY, EVERLASTING GOD is our HIDING PLACE, the PLACE we can run to and find SHELTER in the midst of the RAGING STORMS of LIFE. And we can JOYFULLY PROCLAIM the BLESSED ASSURANCE of His DELIVERANCE. “Let all who take refuge in You rejoice; let them shout for joy forever. May You shelter them, and may those who love Your name boast about You.” (Psalm 5:11) Do you need a Hiding Place?
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you DEFINITELY NEED this Hiding Place, because you are headed for an ETERNITY in Hell with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY to ESCAPE. In order to ESCAPE such a DESTINY, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. You MUST CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS, GOD’S ONLY SON, died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and let Him be YOUR HIDING PLACE. And receive DELIVERANCE from your present DESTINY. And JOYFULLY PROCLAIM that: “God is your HIDING PLACE.” Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
