I liked Church fellowships
when I was a boy. After the meal, the kids always ran outside to play in
the backyard of the church. It adjoined cotton fields to the south and
east. We waited until it was pitch dark, then we started playing "hide
and go seek." The cotton fields were "out of bounds," but
there were plenty of bushes and alcoves to hide in.
You remember the game, don't
you. The person who is "it" hid their eyes then counted to 100
while everyone else finds hiding places. If "it" finds and touches
you, you lost and became "it." However, "it" could
not "get you" if you ran to "the safe place."
I remember the sheer terror
when "it" walked past my hiding place. I never liked someone
pursuing me. It was a creeping feeling. I'd hold my breath and try not
to make a single peep. "It" wanted nothing more than to get me
. . . I knew it and did everything I could to keep from getting "got."
There are people in real
life who think they are "it" and are out "to get you!"
They don't like you, and will do you harm if they get the chance. It may
be a jealous co-worker, a hostile ex-spouse or a feuding family member.
Where is God when your enemies
pursue you? Does He care? Yes! He is your "safe place." Moses
experienced God's protection. God said: "When my glory passes by,
I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until
I have passed by." (Exodus 33:22) Call on God and let Him "hide
your soul in the cleft of the rock."
