You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. (NIV)
You Are Protected
When I was a kid I remember walking in a crowded parking lot of the shopping center with my mom. She would want me to walk closest to the parked cars in the lot. She would position herself between me and any vehicles driving through the lane as we were walking. When I became a parent and my kids got old enough to walk alongside me, whether it was a parking lot, or on a sidewalk, it was just a natural thing for me to put myself between my child and any oncoming traffic. You’ve probably done the same.
So it is with our Heavenly Father. God gives us a place to know we are safe when there is danger present. And He goes even farther in helping us to know His comfort. See if you can just envision what Psalm 32:7 reveals to us. “You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.” What a beautiful picture of His peace surrounding us when there is trouble nearby. He surrounds us with songs of deliverance! How many times have you and I heard the right song at just the right time?! What if that is the Lord singing a song of deliverance over you at just the moment you need it most?!!
What does God say about you? You are protected.
