Psalm 119:114

Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word. Psalm 119:114

I remember right after I trusted in Christ I heard the testimony of a woman named Corrie ten Boom (April 15, 1892 – April 15, 1983). Corrie ten Boom was a Dutch Christian Holocaust survivor who helped many Jews escape the Nazis during World War II. Corrie ten Boom co-wrote her autobiography, ‘The Hiding Place’.                                          (Resource en.wikipedia.org/Corrie_ten_Boom)

 

In this testimony she told of how she had secret rooms and hiding places all throughout her house and she would hide Jews escaping the persecution of the Nazis during the Holocaust.

In one story she told of how she only had time to hide escaping Jews under the dinning room table with only the table cloth pulled down to provide the seeming protection from the view of the Nazi soldiers. After vehemently searching all of the house, just before exiting the room, the soldiers walked over and threw up the table cloth that should have most assuredly revealed their hiding place, but the solider’s eyes were withholden that they could not see.

Without question Corrie ten Boom was a light in a world of darkness during the Holocaust. It is the Spirit of Christ lived out in the testimony of one of His own. But every now an then, we get a glimpse of that same Spirit and same powerful testimony today, as is the case with South Korean national Choi Yong-Hun. Please consider his testimony and them keep him lifted before our faithful Lord.

“The measure of a life, after all, is not its duration, but its donation.”          Corrie ten Boom
