You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. NIV
I am pretty certain that this was the verse that Corrie ten Boom claimed when she was imprisoned in a concentration camp during WWII. I seem to remember reading a book about her that was called something like “The Hiding Place.” While I can’t remember its exact title, and did not spend the time to look that up this morning, I do remember that her story had an incredible impact on me as a child.
Corrie ten Boom trusted God. Compared to her, I really don’t have any problems. And yet, the same promise is made to both of us … God will be our hiding place, he will protect us from trouble and surround us with songs of deliverance. If I will surrender all of my problems to Him and stand firm on the rock of Jesus Christ with my faith and my trust aligned, all will be right with my world … regardless of my daily circumstances.
