In the Day of Trouble

In his shelter in the day of trouble,

That’s where you’ll find me,

For he hides me there in his holiness.

He has smuggled me into his secret place

Where I’m kept safe and secure–

Out of reach from all my enemies.

Triumphant now I’ll bring him my offerings of praise,

Singing and shouting with ecstatic joy!

(Psalm 27: 5,6  The Passion Translation)

Sometimes we can see the answers to our prayers in the secret place with God before we see the answers show up in the place where everyone else can see them. Faith means having the freedom to praise God for evidence conceived in hope but not yet birthed.
