Hiding with the Lord
Psalms 143:9 NASB
Deliver me, O Lord,
from my enemies;
I take refuge in You.
Every morning we are at the beginning of a new day.
And every morning it is unknown to us what awaits us on this day.
David, the poet of Psalm 143, was surrounded by enemies.
Some think that David was persecuted by Absalom, others think that Saul was persecuting him. Whoever it was, David was allowed to take refuge with the Lord in the midst of the danger: “In thee I take refuge.”
How poor are you, if you do not know this shelter
And how rich you are, if you, by grace, may know and practice this every day.
The dangers are many, and in God’s child there is no strength at all.
The old corrupt existence continues to stir us.
But with the Lord there is a good hiding place.
The Christ has acquired this refuge for us.
For Him there was no refuge from the wrath of God, that He might be to His Church as a refuge from the wind and flood.
Home-made shelters are like the housings of spiders.
The hiding places of religion, and good works, will disappoint.
But whoever may take refuge in the Christ will never be ashamed.
