There’s a Secret Place

IDOK DEVOTION FOR FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2008

Oh soul are you weary and troubled? No light in the darkness you see?

Read Psalm 31. Here’s a portion:
20 You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence
From the plots of man;

Just that verse alone is glorious – He is hiding us from the plots of ‘man’ in the Secret Place of His Presence! His Presence alone secrets us from entrapments of evil.
You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion
From the strife of tongues.

In His Presence the wagging tongues of your enemies do not reach you. In His Presence their words fall short of the mark of pain.
21 Blessed be the LORD,
For He has shown me His marvelous kindness in a strong city!
22 For I said in my haste,

Oh, yes sometimes I have spoken too soon and have said
“I am cut off from before Your eyes”;
Nevertheless You heard the voice of my supplications
When I cried out to You.
23 Oh, love the LORD, all you His saints!
For the LORD preserves the faithful,
And fully repays the proud person.
24 Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart,
All you who hope in the LORD.

Yes be of good courage today – HOPE IN THE LORD, HE IS YOUR STRENGTH.
