Hide Me

Hide me in your presence
Hide me in your love
Hide me from the plot of the enemy
I can feel secure Lord
In the shelter of your wings
With all my heart I pray
Hide me
 
There’s a peace that comes from knowing the Lord has surrounded you.  In His presence, the enemy can not come near.  He cannot harm you, torment you, trouble you or tempt you.  The enemy is held at bay by the presence of the Lord.  God has a desire to always have you in His arms, but often we find ourselves prying those arms open and walking off on our own.  Just as we see the nation of Israel wander away from the Lord and then back again, so we wander in and out of His protection.  I can’t tell you how many times I have been curious how Israel could possibly forget how God delivered them from Egypt, or how He parted the Red Sea and the Jordan River.  How could they constantly turn away from a God who did so many miracles, over and over again.  Yet He has done many miracles in my life and before my eyes and I still sometimes walk away from His sheltering wings.
 
I need to nestle myself in His love.  I need to be captured by His everlasting joy.  I need to be captivated by the boundless hope that only comes from knowing Him.  And I need to reside in the peace that only comes from abiding in the vine.  I pray you find that place as well, because there we are hidden from the enemies attacks.  There we are safe!
 
Colossians 3:3 King James Version
For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
