Sometimes we need a place to hide.
We look for comfort and protection in all kinds of places — from people or possessions or things that wind up possessing us.
But one of the great truths of God’s love story for us is that He knows we need that, that our hearts crave protection and care.
In Genesis chapter 15, He told Abram, “I am your shield.” Abram had just gone out and beaten a bunch of kings who messed with his family; he wasn’t a chicken (like I feel sometimes) but he needed a shield.
Other scriptures refer to God as a refuge, a hiding place, even being like a mother hen who covers her young under her wings.
Today, I’m going to nestle into that hiding place. Other times, He may call us to other things but the One who told us to go and make disciples also told us that when we feel heavy-laden we can come to Him and He will give us rest.
The psalmist in Psalm 32:7 says, “You (God) are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.”
And here is that message in song.
