Sony’s Thoughts: Jesus–Your Hiding Place

“You are my hiding place. You always fill my heart with songs of deliverance. Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.”

As I sing this song, I feel a sense of peace and security. The words are true and they resonate in the depths of my soul; yet, when push comes to shove, why is it sometimes so hard to trust that God knows what He’s doing? I have no doubt that He does; yet my actions and thoughts try to assume the position of one who has everything under control. In reality, I don’t. I couldn’t get through a single day without God so why don’t I take more time to let Him know I know that?

Scripture tells us over and over not to fear, not to worry about tomorrow, yet how many professed Christians do those very things which Jesus commanded us not to? Could it be that we don’t know Him as intimately as we need to? If you truly knew the heart of my Savior, there’s no way you could doubt Him. You would know that His plans for you truly are good, that He truly is a hiding place where you can go to get away from your troubles. He will truly take your burdens if you would but give them to Him. God’s Word does not lie. If you’re worried about your future, get in the Word. Read God’s promises to those who trust Him and are willing to give their lives to Him. He didn’t promise we wouldn’t go through hard times but He did say, “Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
