“You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word,” (Psalm 119:114, Holy Bible, King James).
Hide and Seek, a favorite childhood game of my nephews who lived on a farm, wasn’t my idea of fun. They loved to play in darkened, seldom-used outbuildings. Not me. I hated dust mites. I shuddered when I stumbled into large spider webs. I tried to get caught early in the game, leave the musty hiding places, and return to safe sunlight.
Not all hiding places are scary. The Psalmist offers the assurance that hiding in God is a place of safety, a shield against enemies. I am not afraid as I hide there today.
Prayer: Lord, I have hope in Your word. You are my hiding place. Amen.
