You are my hiding place. You will preserve me from trouble. You will surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.
Promise #348: I will keep you safe from trouble for I am your hiding place.
In today's promise, we are reminded that God is our hiding place. He is a refuge for us when we need to be safe from trouble. I love how the Amplified Bible translates Psalm 32:7... You are a hiding place for me; You, Lord, preserve me from trouble, You surround me with songs and shouts of deliverance. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! (AMP)
I love how David puts the word 'Selah' at the end of this verse which the Amplified Bible says it means to 'pause, and calmly think of that!' So let's all take a short 'Selah' break and think about the idea that our God and Father is our hiding place and that He surrounds us with songs and shouts of deliverance when we need to be rescued.
What challenges are facing you today that you need refuge from? God is inviting you to run to Him so that He can be a place of safety and security for you and ultimately the place where He will deliver you from all your troubles. May each one of us take time to pause (Selah) in our busy lives to calmly think of today's promise.
