When our pastor said this in a sermon I was reminded of how much difference a word can make. In the above sentence the only difference is from or in, but they mean totally different things.
David wrote a lot about hiding in God:
“Thou [art] my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.” – Psalm 32:7 KJV
“Thou [art] my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.” – Psalm 119:114 KJV
The first time hiding from God is mentioned is:
“And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where [art] thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I [was] naked; and I hid myself.” – Genesis 3:10 KJV
Yes, our sin causes us to feel shame and we tried to hide ourselves from God.
Try – we all try, but we really can’t hide from God, but.
What are you trying to hide from God?
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” – 1 John 1:9 KJV
Hiding has never worked so go meet with the Lord today and return to hiding in HIM.
