(3) God is the believer’s impenetrable hiding place, because God is a shelter that protects. (4) God is the believer’s impenetrable hiding place, because God is a shelter where grace abounds. (5) God is the believer’s impenetrable hiding place, because God is a shelter limitless in capacity. B. God’s past faithfulness prepares believers for tomorrow’s troubles. --Psalm 20:7. II.
