Hiding Place


There are some small ponds so well hidden they seem to be only known to God, the snapping turtles and frogs.What shields this small slice of land from human invasion is not so much its remoteness but its quiet unique location. Standing just 100 feet away you would ever know of its existence. No matter the dryness of the season its natural springs constantly fill again and again this tiny corner of the lower field.  Our quiet place where we rest in the presence of our Father needs to be the same. The press and constant noise of this world would crowd out and drain away our relationship with God if it could. We need to guard that quiet time and treasure the quiet Hiding place of His presenceIMG_4891e because only there will we discover endless springs of heavenly water. This pond is a reminder to me of God’s invitation for a moment…the heavenly Selah Pause and consider deeply the value of what has just been spoken to our hearts.

Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. Psalm 32:7

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
