July 2018 – Your Month of Perfection and Divine Security
Thanks be to the Almighty God for His faithfulness throughout the first half of year 2018.
You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Psalm 32:7
Those who make God their hiding place are enjoying the stability, security, and serenity that come from God’s care and protection. They have positioned themselves in a place of divine blessing. They are blessed because they have submitted and put themselves under God’s care. They are dwelling in the secret place or under the shelter of the most High.
When our lives are right with the Lord, we enjoy the delight of deliverance. Part of that delight comes from having security and safety in the Lord. David hid himself in God, and he was delivered from all his foes. God is our hiding place.” Rock of Ages, cleft for me. Let me hide, myself in Thee”. When God is our hiding place, we can enjoy His peace, closeness, and security. When we make Him our shelter, then our hope is in Him.
Psalm 119:114—Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.
Psalm 91:1—He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Highest shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
When the Lord is our hiding place, He preserves us from trouble. The Lord guards us, watches over us, keeps and protects us. Thank God for His protection and care for us. He guards us against trouble, against distress, adversaries, and affliction 24/7.
True freedom is found in following Christ, while the pursuit to be free to live in sin leaves us bound and in tight, distressful circumstances. We lose, and get lost when we pursue impurity, iniquity, and the insanity of rebellion against God. You don’t have to go through a miserable life. Make the Lord your hiding place. He will surround you with His joy and songs of victory. We need to lift our hearts in praise to God for His great love and mercy.
