You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your Word.
“I wish I could just disappear for a while and then come back,” wailed Sara. “I’m sick and tired of all that the world keeps throwing at me!” she continued.
Isn’t it true? So many things that can cause us to be insecure, fearful and insignificant, affecting our feelings to an extent where we mindlessly may wander off from the ‘City of Refuge’ as in the case of Abner. (2 Sam 3:33)
Whatever it is you feel like running away from, run towards His presence. Get so immersed in His Word that you get lost in it…so lost that you are hidden from all that the world throws at you. He is your shield, so even while you are hidden, the Lord Himself is your mighty protection that shelters and safeguards you!
Infuse His Word into your being by meditating on the Word…try it…take a couple of quiet moments, close your eyes and shut yourself from the distractions. Let this be your WORD for today-You, dear Lord, are my hiding place, my shield; I will put my hope in Your Word. Do it as many times a day as it benefits you and builds your hope. There is nothing as stable and unshakable as His Word! Build your life on this, just like the wise man who built his house upon the ROCK!!!
