Psalm 32:7 KJV

 Thou art my hiding place;

Thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt

compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.

Selah = Pause and think about that.

Songs of Deliverance - "Yes, Lord, I embrace Songs of Deliverance."

In the song below, Psalm 32:7 is sung this way....


You are my hiding place.
You always fill my heart with - songs of deliverance. Whenever I am afraid I will trust in you.

When emotions are trying to envelop you...

God has the answer.

He is our teacher.

He is our comforter.

He is our hiding place.

 As I sing that song,

the words and the music comfort me and quiet me.

I loosen the grip that my emotions have had on me.

As I sing that song,

I feel like that I am surrendering to God and

he is quieting me...

like a little baby girl who has been worn out from

crying and is finally surrendered and is quieted

even though her wish is not given to her.

Those thoughts

remind me of the following verse.

Surely I have calmed and quieted myself,

like a weaned child with his mother:

like a weaned child is my soul within me.

Psalm 131:2 NKJV

A Psalm of David

David wrote those words.

David was saying:

I have quit struggling

(at least for a time)

and I rest in you.

God calls out to us...

Be still and know that I am God.

Psalm 46:10

In Psalm 131,

David was saying...

My struggle was similar to a child

who has gone through the weaning process.

David was saying...

I am now

no longer struggling

against this process of

accepting God's will.

Beth says,

for myself...

God wants me to accept where I am right now.

He wants me to stop struggling and rest in his arms.

I remind myself that

as I wait upon the Lord, he will strengthen me.

(Isaiah 40:31)

I don't give up hope for rescue in the future,

but I do give up fretting about it...

at least for a time...

and I want that time to last as long as possible.

I want to stay surrendered to the Lord and not fret.

When I sing the song above,

I become calmer

 and more pliable

in the hands of my Heavenly Potter. 

I am now better able to hear

the wise words of my best friend.

Amazing tips and strategies..

But before a person can receive

tips and strategies

he or she must receive rest and refreshment.

To bring us more rest and refreshment,

 I present our featured song again

with the beauty of dancers.

God gave us beauty

to refresh us and provide a restful experience.

We can always see the beauty of God if we will just look....

at a blue sky with puffy clouds,

at a strong, tall tree,

at a delicate flower,

at a sleeping baby,

at a genuine smile from someone,

or a little girl blowing bubbles.


true surrender to God - is


All of the people in the video above

they laid all that aside, and they showed up to 

give glory to God.


Practical Help

The song lyrics say,

Trust in God

What does that mean - actually?

To Trust God,

We need to


on thoughts of

trusting God.

I will tell you how...

Short Introduction:

Think of your daily life as being represented by a car.

You are the driver of your car,

and your thoughts are the

steering wheel.

You need to take control over your

thoughts or your thoughts will

keep steering you into a ditch of

worry, fear, discouragement, etc.


How do we take control of our thoughts?


In Ephesians 6:16, God tells us that he has given us a

Shield of Faith.

We are to raise our Shield of Faith and defend ourselves

from fiery darts.

Or some translations say

flaming arrows or flaming missiles or blazing bolts.

Fiery darts are

thoughts of Fear and Worry and Discouragement, etc.


When we hear a "fiery dart" thought

of fear or worry, etc.,

God wants us to

Defend ourselves by

Raising our

Shield of Faith and saying,



we can choose to say a

Powerful Bible Verse.

For example: 

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Philippians 4:13

We need to respond to the words of the fiery dart.

We need to respond by

shutting down its ability to influence us

into a ditch.

Fiery Darts are like Poison.

We need to shut down its poison.

We need to defend ourselves


not just let the poison contaminate us.


I encourage you to say these 5 sentences and each time,

emphasize the word in RED.

I will trust in God.

I WILL trust in God.

I will TRUST in God.

I will trust IN God.

I will trust in GOD.

Raise Your Shield of Faith




God doesn't want
"fiery dart" thoughts to mow over you.

He wants YOU to
mow over them!

Here is a Powerful Bible Verse to Say:

Because the Lord God helps me,
I will not be dismayed;
therefore, I have set my face like 
flint to do his will, and I know
I will triumph.

Isaiah 50:7 TLB

Flint - like an unchanging rock

The Champion above is standing on

the Rock of Jesus

armed with the

Word of God!

That is YOU!

Or it CAN be YOU!

God's Word is Solid

When you are afraid...

Hold onto something

that is

solid and reliable and unmovable .....

When I have had to physically walk

in an area that is slippery

(and I feared I might fall),

I have looked for something

solid and immovable

to hold onto.


As I am getting older,

I almost always hold the rail when walking on stairs.

I hold onto something solid and dependable.

During times of difficulty,


The Bible....

Solid, immovable, dependable.

Hold onto the

Words of God.

In order to steer your car properly while on the road of life...

1. * Read God's Words regularly.

(Everyone has 5 minutes a day. You could even listen to Scripture in the car or while cooking!)

2. * Say the Words of God out-loud... and often.

3. * Regularly say out-loud Bible verses that are on the topic of your current weaknesses.

(Verses about worry, fear, etc. You can easily find Bible verses by topic. Just type in an online search box - Bible verses about worry. )

4. * Whether you see God doing anything or you feel anything, decide to thank God that he is changing your situation. He promises to help you if you pray.

Such as:

"Lord, I know you are improving my situation. I know that you are strengthening me. I know that you are working in my life in small ways and in large ways. Thank you."

Key Concept

Give Thanks to God often.

Words of Gratitude

draw us closer to God


refresh and strengthen our soul.

5. * Strengthen your belief that  - the Words of God are Powerful- by SAYING Bible verses out-loud..... often.

6. *.... If...

If you don't deeply believe God's Word is Powerful -

then start saying
and start meditating on why it is POWERFUL.
Give reasons why God would say it is Powerful.

Speak out Scriptures like Hebrews 4:12 and Jeremiah 23:29.

Listen to testimonies of how God's Word
was involved in miracles.

If you do these things with an open teachable heart,
you WILL increase your Faith in God's Word.

God's Word

Read the Bible with a Teachable Heart.


God's word to Speak to you.

Allow God's Word to Comfort you.

Allow God's Word to Strengthen you.

Allow God's Word to Instruct you.

Right after Psalm 32:7

- which is our highlighted verse for this page - 

God says in verse 8 a...

 "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go."


Word of God speak .... to me.

The confidence and assurance

that God placed

inside the Bible

is contagious -

if you will spend time in the Bible. 

Let the weak say, "I am STRONG."

The first song has lyrics that say, 

Let the weak say, "I am strong."

That is Scripture from Joel 3:10 b.

Other translations say, Let the weak say....
"I am a Mighty Man" or "I am a Warrior."

I have learned that God wants us to speak out what we want to see played out in our life. God shows us this in the story of Gideon. The Angel of the Lord came to Gideon when he was terrified of his enemies and hiding in a wine press. 

The Angel of the Lord said to Gideon, "The Lord is with thee, thou Mighty Man of Valor."

Valor definition: strength of mind or spirit that enables a person to encounter danger with firmness -  personal bravery from Merriam Webster

God called Gideon "a Mighty Man of Valor" even before he was.

We must stir up confidence and strength in ourselves by our words.

God made the world with words. God created words to have Power. Things change with the POWER of Words.

If we want more strength from God,

we say,

"I am Strong" or "I am Strong in the Lord."

Say things to yourself (out-loud) such as...

"I am a MIGHTY Warrior for God."


"I have the POWER of God working for me."

Are you saying things like the above?


Or are you saying things to yourself like

"I can't do it."

"It won't work for me."

"I can't learn new things."

"I always mess everything up."

"I won't be able to do the things Beth is suggesting."



I MUST remind you to...

Be SURE and put on your BELT of Truth.

That is part of the Armor of God.

You need to speak Truth about yourself....

The Truth that GOD SAYS ABOUT you...

not what you think about you.

God says that you are able to do
ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens you.

Philippians 4:13

God calls you his child.

Think about how angry a parent gets when someone says something mean about his or her child.

God doesn't want anyone saying something mean or disrespectful about you ...... He doesn't even want YOU saying it!!!

His Bible Words are for YOU.

Greater is He who is in me

than he who is in the world.

1 John 4:4

 Who you are in Christ

David encouraged himself in the Lord.

1 Samuel 30:6 b

And each of us need to do that also.

I will see
