Ever have one of those days where you feel like curling up into a little ball and hiding from the world for maybe a decade or two? I’m having one right now and the day’s only a few minutes old.
There’s no need to fear anything this world tries to throw at you. Seek God with all your heart. He’s the ultimate hiding place:
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord,
“He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
“Because he loves me,” says the Lord,
“I will rescue him; I will protect him,
for he acknowledges my name.
He will call upon me,
and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
(Psalm 91:1-4, 14-16)
