“You are my hiding place, You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.” (Psalm 32:7).
The meaning of the term Selah is uncertain, but it is likely that it indicates a place to pause and reflect on the words read or heard.
David knew from long experience of fleeing from Saul’s ill-tempered mistrust just how secure a hiding place he had in the Lord. He knew that he was not promised a life from which trouble was absent, but that when trouble came, he could find refuge and security in His Lord.
Whatever the troubles, challenges and difficulties you may face as 2021 continues in the shadow of Covid-19, political unrest, natural disaster and conflict, may you know the certainty of our Lord and Father’s faithful presence below and around you, and with you in the midst of it.
Yours in our Lord Jesus Christ, The Müller Prayer Team
