The Confidence of Confidentiality

Where, and in whom, or in what, do I dare put my confidence? And, I ask, how do I even think of daring to put trust in another body with skin? If I do, do I need to guard against the possibility of something rising up which could break a mutual trust, thus giving rise to a misunderstanding?

Instead, let’s go into His pavilion …

“For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.”

(Psalm 27:5)

Or run into his strong tower …

“The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.”

(Proverbs 18:10)

“For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.”

(Psalms 61:3)

After we get there …

“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.”

(Psalms 121:1)

We then safely dwell and abide …

“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty …”

(Psalms 91:1-16)

If the enemy still tries to come in …

“… like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.”

(Isaiah 59:19)

So I conclude that the only safe place is in His word, and He leads us there, becoming our refuge. And it’s there I find the facts of who He is to all who will.

There I find the revealed treasure of Him and His desire to live in me, to fill me with His wisdom, His joy, His understanding, His care, His guidance, His confidentiality, Himself.
