For years, one of my favorite verses in Scripture was David’s song in Psalm 32:7: “You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance.”
It’s a beautiful song and it conveys God’s comfort and protection and the way He sings over us (Zephaniah 3:17). But I recently realized, for the first time, that these words of David’s are in the middle of his song of repentance — He was confessing to God the sin he had been trying to hide from God.
No longer wanting to hide anything from God, David said he wanted to hide himself IN God. And then he tells us what happens next. God will “preserve me from trouble” and “surround me with songs of deliverance.”
