The Safest Place

Psalm 27:5 states “For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.”
The pavilion was a tent in the middle of the camp used as the tabernacle, a place of worship and offerings. During battles the king would use it and surround it with soldiers, making it safe from a human point of view. But the verse mentions “the secret of His tabernacle” which is most likely a reference to the holy of holies. Here I think the writer is using this as a metaphor. The safest place in the nation was the holy of holies, which was considered the dwelling place of Jehovah’s presence. The only person to enter this place was the high priest and He would do so only once a year. Yet the place was thought to be filled with the glory of God all the time. So this was the safest place to be hidden, in the presence of God. In the New Testament, we are said to be in the “hand of the Father” and no one can pluck us out. We are in the safest place possible, in Christ! God is so good.
