In This World Of Increasing Electronic Surveillance
IN THIS WORLD OF INCREASING ELECTRONIC surveillance, privacy can be hard to come by. Safe places are also in short supply. So when you feel surrounded by trouble, remember this: I am your Hiding Place. Call out to Me, and I will protect you from trouble. I will even surround you with songs of deliverance.
One of the best ways to draw upon My strength is to sing praises to Me. I actually dwell in the praises of My people. So when problems are weighing heavily upon you, break free by worshiping Me—in songs, in shouts, even in whispers. These sacred acclamations decimate the darkness and invite Me into your awareness, brightening the atmosphere around you. Problems fade into the background while you are engaged in worshiping Me. Awareness of My Presence strengthens you and fills you with Joy.
When you praise Me in the midst of a hard day, both you and I are blessed. I come near, and I hide you in the secret place of My Presence.
Rescue me from my enemies, O LORD, for I hide myself in you.
You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.
You are holy, O You Who dwell in [the holy place where] the praises of Israel [are offered].
You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the plots of man; You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
