Focus/52 is the weekly devotional of The Pentecostals. As a church family, we focus our attention on a different chapter in the bible every week for 52 weeks per year. Not only do we study the same chapter together, but we also memorize a passage out of that chapter every week. Follow along with us. We'd love to have you.

Read Psalm 32
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.
"His Will is our hiding place." ~Corrie T. Boom
It's obvious in this passage that David finds relief in the Lord. He had sinned, confessed it before God, and felt the love, support, and forgiveness of the Lord.
If we fall, we must get up and get right back into doing whatever is God's Will for our lives. We certainly do not want the Hand of the Lord against us. God can still be found! He hasn't stopped helping His people. He is our Hiding Place from the pressures and problems of life. He completely surrounds us with deliverance. He give us instruction, and He wants us to willingly follow. It's not His Will that we must be made to do as He desires.
Lord, help me to not be stubborn and resistant to Your Will. I want to rest and hide in Your Presence. I want to hear Your instruction, because I know that You know and see all things, and You know the end from the beginning.
