You Are My Hiding Place
Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne:
"You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance"
Psalm 32: 7
God is our hiding place. When we enter the inner court, our inner room, to worship our "Father Who is in secret" (Matthew 6:6), we are in our hiding place. This is where we praise God and minister to Him in His presence and this is where He protects us, strengthens us and surrounds us "with songs of deliverance." We have seen many times where David expressed His desire, saying "I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord" (Psalm 27: 6). Now in this verse, we see David declaring "You surround me with songs of deliverance." What I see is this, when we come before God’s presence regularly, to sing to Him and minister to Him, we are putting ourselves in a spiritual environment where we are able to hear God surrounding us with His "songs of deliverance."
In ministering to the Lord each day, we are blessed to know that, even as we sing praises to Him, our Lord God is surrounding us with songs of deliverance, always ready to minister to us when we are in need. How beautiful is this! What are these songs of deliverance? God floods us with the truth of His word, Spirit, lovingkindness, and power as we are in His presence ministering to him and this erupts in songs of deliverance, from our innermost beings, flowing forth from our own hearts and mouths in the declaration of victory and the praise of God. God gives us these songs in His presence. Hide a while with your Lord today and minister to Him, for He is worthy, and let Him surround you with His songs of deliverance. Hallelujah!
