Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. (Psalms 32:7 KJV)
Think of yourself in the midst of a great battle, surrounded by an enemy who is closing in on you with an overwhelming arsenal. It looks as though you are greatly outnumbered and that your foe will soon overtake you! But what he does not know is that you have an Ally ready to rescue you.
The Lord is your Ally, your Deliverer. You have nothing to fear, for He will help you defeat your adversaries and I will rescue you in mighty fashion, just as He has done for countless believers before you. He is your shield and your refuge. Take shelter in Him and know that He will save you.
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. (Psalms 46:10 KJV)
