BIBLE READING: Psalm 26, 40, 58, 61-62, 64
Superhero movies are very popular these days. I think part of the reason is that so many of us as children fantasized about having a superpower. If asked, most people would want the power to fly. But, according to Psalm 64, if David had been asked that question, I think he would have wanted to be invisible so it would be easier to hide. In verse 2, he says, “Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked, from the throng of evildoers.” I’m sure we all have had days like David, when the world becomes so heavy and chaotic that we just want to run and hide (to be invisible) and let the bad people and bad things pass on through. While we may not be able to hide, we do have a master that comforts us and is a shelter in the storm. In Matthew 11: 28, Jesus says, “come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” So, the next time you need to “hide,” go to Jesus and let him give you the rest your weary soul needs.
