🔹 The Hiding Place is an amazing WWII memoir by Corrie Ten Boom published in 1971

🔹 Why so many Holocaust books?

"In darkness, God's truth shines most clear"—despite the great evil of the Holocaust, so many people responded in courageous, valiant ways

🔹 What makes a hero?

Corrie Ten Boom didn't set off to be a hero—she just had a pure heart, strove to do what's right, and let the Lord lead her

🔹 God doesn't make us bear everything at once

Corrie's father once told her, "Some knowledge is too heavy for children. When you are older and stronger, you can bear it. For now you must trust me to carry it for you."

🔹 The power of the scriptures

While in the concentration camp, Corrie and Betsie treasured their Bible and shared it with others at every possible moment

"Life in Ravensbruck took place on two separate levels, mutually impossible. One, the observable, external life, grew every day more horrible. The other, the life we lived with God, grew daily better, truth upon truth, glory upon glory."

🔹 The miracle of the vitamin oil

The Lord miraculously blessed them to have enough vitamin oil for Betsie and other sick prisoners

"It was one thing to believe that such things were possible thousands of years ago, another to have it happen now, to us, this very day. And yet it happened, this day, and the next, and the next."

🔹 The miracle of the fleas

Corrie and Betsie strove to be grateful "in all circumstances"—even in a barracks full of fleas—and the Lord blessed them for it in an incredible way

🔹 The miracle of love

Corrie learned the miracle of God's love early in life, a lesson she had to apply after the war when confronted with one of her jailers

"Whenever we cannot love in the old, human way ... God can give us his perfect way."

"It is not on our forgiveness any more than on our goodness that the world's healing hinges, but on His. When He tells us to love our enemies, He gives, along with the command, the love itself."

🔹 God's will is our hiding place

"[God's] will is our hiding place. Lord Jesus, keep me in Your will! Don't let me go mad by poking about outside it."

Just as the Jews were preserved in Corrie's home during the Holocaust, following God's will will preserve us in this increasingly wicked world

🔹 Takeaways

1. Immerse yourself in the scriptures this week. Commit to one simple change that will bring your scripture study to a higher level.

2. Thank God for the fleas in your life! Think of something that's making your life difficult, and thank God for it. Try to find the blessings that have come from that particular trial.
