The Hiding Place

As I prayed today, the Lord spoke clearly to me from Psalm 32:7: “You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah” (NKJV).

As chairman of the board of the Corrie ten Boom Holocaust Museum in Holland, a part of our ministry which we restored almost 30 years ago, I am pleased that we have been able to keep the doors open at no charge to visitors. When I met Corrie ten Boom over dinner in 1972, the first words out of her mouth were from that Scripture God spoke to my spirit this morning. That is why she called the secret room behind her bed “The Hiding Place.” It was there that 800 Jewish lives were saved. Some of them are still living in Israel today thanks to the ten Boom family, most of whom gave their lives to save the Chosen People.

Thanks to your love and generosity, we have opened the first Christian museum in Israel to tell the story of Corrie and her family—and so many more. This is a great lighthouse of love for the nation of Israel and the entire world.

When David referred to a hiding place, he was referring to a den, a cave, or a secret chamber where a man could hide from danger. Beloved, we have a hiding place from stress, a heavenly shelter in the time of storms where you can be shut in with God in a secret place, there in the Spirit beholding His face. That hiding place is the Lord. David declares, “There the Lord surrounded me with joyous songs of salvation, deliverance.” Go to your hiding place, that place the angels of the Lord inhabit.

The Hebrew word “preserve” means to guard, protect, and keep. You are kept by the precious blood of Jesus and the Word of the Living God and the sweet Holy Spirit. In the fall when I was young, I would help my mother as she canned pickles and fruits. The seals were very tight to preserve the food through the winter months. She always had me tighten the lids on the jars to seal them for her. You are preserved through the winter seasons of your life through the precious nail-scarred hands of the Savior. Rejoice today in His goodness for you!
