You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.
As Christians, we have a hiding place in God who will preserve us from trouble. His great mercy surrounds the righteous. We can live each day confidently knowing our mighty God is with us and will one day take us home to live with Him forever. We will not face the eternal troubles that will befall the ungodly.
What a blessing this is! So, too, is the blessing of forgiveness which God, through His Son, Jesus, so graciously gives to us. Because, there is not one of us who is blameless.
All have sinned.
All have missed the mark.
All are in need of our loving, awesome, and amazing Lord!
And, when we seek God as our refuge and strength, our hiding place, He is faithful to deliver us. Forgive us. Instructing and guiding us along our life's journey in His ways and His will.
So, let us reflect on these things today:
- God is a forgiving God who takes away our sins.
- He shelters us from evil.
- He teaches, guides and counsels us through His Word.
- He leads us in the paths for His righteousness sake.
- He loves us more than we could ever imagine.
May this Lenten season bring you into a closer walk with the Lord.
Psalms 30, 32 or 42, 43
