Psalm 46: 1 God is a safe place to hide, ready to help when we need him.
Tilly giggled softly to herself as Ebow went by her hiding place. Oh this was fun! Whenever Ebow and Adadzewa came to visit Piloloo was one of their favourite games to play and today was no different except Ebow was yet to find her. Tilly had changed her hiding place. As soon as she had heard that her cousins were coming to visit, Tilly tried out new places to hide so she couldn’t be found and she had discovered the perfect spot! Ebow came by her secret place once more, scratched his head and left. Tilly was safe from discovery a little while longer.
Running into God can be a bit like playing Piloloo or Hide and Seek; when you have a great hiding space nobody can find you and you’re safe. What makes God an awesome hiding place is He is everywhere and anyone can run into Him; whether or not someone is already hidden in Him. The King James Version puts it this way;
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Not only does God keep us safe but He makes us stronger as we hibernate in Him; so that when we come out, we can face the world.
Think About This
Is God the first person you turn to when you’re in trouble? Why not give Him a try.
When things come rushing at me or I get scared and need a safe place to hide please tuck me into Yourself and keep me safe. Please give me the strength I need to face whatever lies ahead of me. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
