You’ve Never Failed Me Yet

My Hiding Place
Psalm 32: 7
Psalm 27:5

Song extract: “ Storms of life come rushing hard oh God, in you I can hide”

The word of God throughout the scripture talk about times of trouble, and Sooner or later everyone experiences those times. As we can observe in our lives, those times come often.
Now more than ever our world is conditioning us to hide and loose consciousness of the trouble. We seek refuge in things that num our conscience but cannot save. Work, busy lives, friends, projects, friends, alcohol, drugs and list goes on. David declares “ The righteous person faces many troubles, but the LORD comes to the rescue each time.”
When we seek refuge in God, he does not just momentarily make us feel better. He is a resting place. He protect us from danger while we keep consciousness of the trouble.

At some point in my own life I thought to myself, it seems like the times of trouble outweigh the time of peace and tranquility. I’ve come to realize that The lord is not surprised by the frequency of my troubles, nor by their nature, nor intensity. He is not surprised, or overwhelmed by our circumstances. He delight in being a refuge for the oppressed.
Often times we find it fairly easier to run to God when the trouble we are into is not caused by our own actions. It becomes more difficult to run and hide in God when we’ve sinned against him. God encourages us to run and seek refuge in him regardless of what caused our trouble. David’s life is a wonderful example of this truth. David’s guilt over his sins has always drove him to runnand confess his sin to God and plead for pardon. He could hide in God no matter what the storm is. What ever the cause or the source of the storm you are facing today, God is a constant and sure refuge. He will cover you with his wings, if you would just run and hide in him.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing from your own life experiences. I needed to hear about running to Him when my trouble is caused by my own sin. Thank you and God bless and encourage you!
