Hidden By God

Posted on: 7-15-112016

“And the king commanded Jerahmeel the king’s son, Seraiah the son of Azriel, and Selemiah the son of Abdeel, to seize Baruch the scribe and Jeremiah the prophet, but the Lord hid them.” Jeremiah 36:26

Baruch and Jeremiah were on the king’s most wanted list!  The king issued a command to seize these two and I’m sure prison would’ve been the least of their worries if he had succeeded in capturing them.  However, God had different plans for his faithful servants, so He hid them.  As the story unfolds in the book of Jeremiah, I wish we had more details about how He hid them or where He hid them, but we’re simply told that He hid them.  With the king hot on their heels, I am sure wherever or however God hid them, they were grateful for His hand of protection.  As Christians, we may never face the same type of threats as Jeremiah, but we still face threats.  Each of us have enemies and each of us have times when we feel like those enemies are hot on our heels.  Now, God may not hide us like He did Baruch and Jeremiah, but He will protect us from our enemies.  He has promised to take care of us and watch over us.  No enemy we face will ever be able to overcome God.  No enemy will ever be able to touch us if God says we cannot be touched.  You may feel the breath of the enemy on your neck right now, but keep your eyes focused on God.  He is more than able to hide you right in plain sight of your enemy!
