June Verse (Psalms 27:5)


For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock (Psalms 27:5 NKJ).
We are told in the scripture that help comes to us “in the day of trouble.” 
Our Lord comes to us in the midst of our fears – the fears that are generated within us by the Law of God itself. 
Why is this necessary?  Contrary to what some may think, our God is not a cruel God, striking fear in us just for the fun of it or to watch us squirm. 
He does it out of love because He knows that it is only when we are overcome with the fear of the Lord’s judgment that we have even the slightest interest in any of the help that He promises to provide for us. 
And even that experience of fear is indirect.  We don’t willingly come to some enlightened realization that we have sinned against God and need to repent. 
That knowledge is forced upon us by the consequences of sin which we live and struggle with every day.  And even then we don’t always get it. 
We see conflict, sickness, and death all around us and we search in vain for some explanation for it-any explanation other than the obvious one: that these are symptoms of sin-a terminal disease from which we all suffer. 
Before we can possibly be delivered from trouble, we first need to be made aware of the fact that we are in trouble.
