There are times in life when no matter how much we try to avoid trouble; trouble has a way of finding us. No matter how much we try to go the other way or how much we look the other way, trouble can sneak up on us before we know it. What should we do we when trouble finds us, do we panic and try to ward off the trouble, or do we simply trust God to see us through it? The Scripture reminds us that, in the time of trouble God will hide us in His pavilion in the secret of His tabernacle He will hide us, and set us on a rock. I encourage you today when trouble comes to allow God to hide you in His pavilion. God has a place for you when trouble comes. You do not need to go to friends and family to help you out of trouble, but go to God and allow Him to hide you in the time of trouble. God already has a hiding place for you, and when you allow Him to place you there you will find that there is joy and peace in His pavilion. In His pavilion you will find that you can have rest from your trials and tribulations, and peace in the middle of your storm. When trouble arises in your life, run to the secret place God has prepared for you. When you can go to His secret place He will place you on a rock. You may feel like you are on shaky ground, but when you go to Him, He will place you on a rock to stay. I thank God for hiding me in the time of trouble, in a secret place that only He and I know, and it is there I find all I need in Him. Since I run often to His secret place He has for me, I know without a doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord thank you for hiding me in a secret place, and setting me up on a rock to stay. Thank you for always being my Rock. In Jesus Name Amen.
