Hiding Place – Don Moen

This song never goes away, Hiding Place, by Don Moen. I love it. It is not a new song, and I’m pretty sure everyone knows it.

But this is what I call a ministration. It plays in my head over and over, again and again.

The lyrics are very powerful for my soul, yet so simple.

YOU ARE MY HIDING PLACE
YOU ALWAYS FILL MY HEART
WITH SONGS OF DELIVERANCE
WHENEVER I AM AFRAID
I WILL TRUST IN YOU
I WILL TRUST IN YOU
LET THE WEAK SAY I AM STRONG
IN THE STRENGTH
OF THE LORD

Oh, I’m going off with these words…

They capture essentially how we cannot but trust in Lord. We are sure to have hard times and the sorrow will tend to crack us. We become afraid in the eye of the storm.

But…

We hold on to the God of all comforts, our Saviour and Redeemer who can sleep through and rest our hearts. That’s the one we trust, the God that gives us freshness and newness and a new song when life is throwing a tantrum.

We can safely look away and look to Jesus. He’s the source of all comfort.
