7 Ways That Christ Is Our Hiding Place

He is a Safe Hiding Place.

“a shelter from the storm” (Isaiah 32:2). “In the cover of your presence you hide them from the plots of men; you store them in your shelter from the strife of tongues” (Psalm 31:20).

Note the three “froms” in the above verses as showing that from which the Lord saves.

He is a Sure Hiding Place.

“For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock” (Psalm 27:5). Note the two wills. There is no uncertainty.

He is a Secret Hiding Place.

“You are a hiding place for me;you preserve me from trouble” (Psalm 32:7). The word hiding” in the above is rendered “secret” in some of the Scriptures before us, and is so given in 1 Samuel 19:2, which may be taken as an illustration.

He is a Comfortable Hiding Place.

“Let me dwell in your tent forever!Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings!” (Psalm 61:4). The young birds find the covert of the mother bird’s wings a place of comfort.

He is a Strong Hiding Place.

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty” (Psalm 91:1). Note, it is the Most High who is the Shelterer.

He is a Secure Hiding Place.

“You are my hiding place and my shield;I hope in your word” (Psalm 119:114). He assures us in His Word what He is, hence our security.

He is a Communing Hiding Place.

“O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the crannies of the cliff, let me see your face, let me hear your voice, for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely” (Song of Songs 2:14). The Lord is not a cold hard rock in which we hide; He is a living Person, with whom we have conversation.
