A Short Study of Psalm 27:5

“For in the time of trouble He will hide me in His pavilion: in the secret of His tabernacle will He hide me; He will set me up upon a rock.”
(Psalm 27:5)

We have no refuge but Jesus where we can hide our guilty heads.

Where else can I hide?

In the law?

That curses.

In self?

That is treacherous.

In the world?

That is under the curse of God.

In my own righteousness?

That is filthy rags.

In my own strength?

All is weakness.

In my own resolutions of amendment?

They will all issue in my falling more foully than before.

By J.C. Philpot
