You are my hiding place; You protect me from trouble. You surround me with joyful shouts of deliverance.
God is My Hiding Place
I love the way this promise begins. You are my hiding place. The psalmist declares his confidence in God and God’s ability to protect Him.
You have a hiding place, a place of refuge when problems and troubles come your way. That place of refuge is personal to you. God is not a hiding place, but your hiding place. When you enter that hiding place, it feels welcoming, strong, and familiar. Your hiding place is safe and made just for you. It feels like home.
Sometimes troubles and difficulties seem to pile up all around you. You may be going through such a time right now. Problems can sometimes feel like they are seeking you out and hunting you down. At times, life has a way of wearing you down. During those times, remember, you have a hiding place of protection and restoration. When stress seems to overwhelm you and the enemy is attacking from all sides, you can run to your hiding place.
Not a Location but A Person
Your hiding place is not a location but a person. God is your hiding place. He covers you on all sides and protects you from the attack of the enemy. He is always available and always ready to come to your aid.
As you run to Him, you will find protection, security, and restoration. Your troubles will have no lasting effect because God’s protection covers you.
Song of Deliverance
Because you have a secure place of protection, you can lift your voice in praise and thanksgiving. Because God has placed a wall of protection all around you, you can sing of your deliverance in Him. He is bringing healing and restoration to you today.
When troubles and problems are chasing you, run to your hiding place, the Lord Jesus. He is your security and protection.
Look at the promise once again.
You are my hiding place; You protect me from trouble. You surround me with joyful shouts of deliverance.Psalm 32:7

In Jesus Name,
When problems surround you, and you feel like you can’t gain victory, you have a hiding place in God.
