Hidden Victory

This morning I was reading Proverbs 2 and loved this passage:

He holds victory in store for the upright,
He is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,
for He guards the course of the just
and protects the way of His faithful ones.

I was intrigued by the words "in store." So when I looked up the translation from Hebrew, there was a common thread:

lays up
keeps in a secret place

In store. We had a storage unit out in California for awhile. Plenty of stuff in there, but hidden away behind a storage door. There waiting for us, but tucked away.

I don't know about you, but I could use some victory. And to think that it is in store--even though it is currently laid up, hidden, and kept in a secret place--it brings new hope.

Because victory--though hidden--awaits.

I can see a light that is coming
for the heart that holds on
There will be an end to these struggles,
but until that day comes
Still I will praise You,
still I will praise You
"You Never Let Go" by Matt Redman
