Hiding in God

PSALMS 32:7 (READ THE ENTIRE PSALMS)

7 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.

LOUDNESS OF LIFE’S CIRCUMSTANCES WILL DROWN THE SOUND OF THE WORD THAT IS IN YOUR SPIRIT IF YOU DO NOT GET INTO YOUR SECRET PLACE AND HAVE THOSE “SELAH” MOMENTS. NOT THE “CALGON TAKE ME AWAY MOMENTS”, BUT THOSE QUIET TIMES IN HIS PRESENCE.

DAVID’S LOUDNESS IN PSALMS 32 WAS AN ISSUE WITH SIN THAT WAS NOT CONFESSED TO GOD. HE WAITED AND WAITED BUT THE THING BECAME HEAVIER AND HEAVIER……WE CAN BE IN THIS SAME PLACE BUT SOMETIMES WE JUST HAVE AN OVERFLOW OF PRESSURES IN OUR LIFE THAT ROBS US OF OUR PEACE AND LEAVE US FEELING LIKE WE HAVE NO SAFE PLACE TO REST. THAT SAFETY IS FOUND IN HIS MANIFESTED PRESENCE.

WHY CAN’T I GET THERE? IT IS A MIND THING! ROM 12:1-2: WE MUST COMMAND OUR MINDS TO BE STILL AND THINK GOD’S WORD AND MEDITATE ON HIS WORD. DAVID HAD AT LEAST 3 SELAH MOMENTS IN THIS SHORT PSALM. HOW MANY DO WE HAVE IN ONE DAY OR EVEN ONE WEEK! SOME CHANGE CAME ABOUT WITHIN HIM. (DAVID). GOD BEGIN TO REVEAL HIS POWER TO DAVID SO THAT DAVID WAS ABLE TO KNOW AND BELIEVE THAT “THOUGH THERE MAY COME TIMES OF GREAT FLOOD WATERS, THEY WILL NOT COME NEAR MY SPIRIT” IN OTHER WORDS-THESE TROUBLES CAN’T TOUCH ME. THEY CAN’T ROB ME OF MY PEACE AND JOY. NOTE THIS: THIS MAN WAS HIDING FROM GOD BECAUSE OF A SIN ISSUE, NOW HE IS HIDING IN GOD!!!!!!!!!!!! SIN ALWAYS HAS THAT EFFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HEARD HIS STILL SMALL VOICE? ANXIETY AND WORRY ROBS US OF THESE TYPES OF MOMENTS WITH HIM. WHEN WE SIT DOWN TO ENTER HIS PRESENCE, IT SEEMS LIKE HE’S JUST NOT ANSWERING. WE MUST EVENTUALLY GET TO THOSE MOMENTS WHERE WE SENSE HIS NEARNESS, EVEN WHEN WE ARE NOT SPEAKING TO HIM AND HE NOT SPEAKING TO US, BUT WE KNOW HIS PRESENCE IS MANIFESTED! NOW THAT IS INTIMACY.
