Psalms 31:20 – In the shelter of your presence you will hide them from the plotting of man. You will keep them secretly in a dwelling away from the strife of tongues.
There are times in life when we will certainly face opposition from people. If we have resolved to live a life that pleases God, it’s something we can bank on!
Yet in the midst of this, God makes a great promise to us – that in the shelter of his presence he will hide us from two things – the plotting of man, and the strife of tongues.
The presence of God is our refuge. When we make the decision in crisis to run first to Him, he brings the plotting of others to nothing and hides us from the curses and words that are spoken in these kinds of situations.
Jesus told us – when you pray, go into your room and close the door (Matthew 6). It’s here that we’ll discover the secret of His presence, and find the strength to continue our battle on!
