Have you ever wanted to hide? I know there have been plenty of times when I hoped to not be seen, noticed, found, or called out. The psalmist also had moments like that. Reading through psalm 64, I saw this verse stand out.
Hide me from the secret counsel of evildoers, From the tumult of those who do iniquity,
Psalms 64:2 NASB
He’s whispering a desperate plea to be hidden from the discussion of the evil-doers. He doesn’t want them talking about him, gossiping about him, or anything like that. He wants to stay hidden so that he is not distracted by that extra concern. Do we pray that God will keep us hidden and off the agenda of the local gossip? God will answer!
