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.

You Found Me

I was wandering in the valley of despair
With no hope in sight
Could not see the light
I tried to look up but could not lift my head
I was down and out
Feeling all alone

Then you found me
You lifted me up
Set my feet on the solid rock
When you found me
You just smiled at me
And you said you loved me so
I’m glad you found me

When I wander off the path you have laid out
I can lose my way
Farther off each day
I try my best to turn around and come back to you
Then you take my hand
Lead me back again

I’m glad you found me
Set my pathways straight
Gave my heart more faith to trust
When you found me
My doubt vanished away
I drew closer each day
I’m so glad you found me

Like a lost sheep I had gone astray
Wandering farther from you every day
I could not find a way to return to you
Then you same running and found me
You came running and found me

I’m glad you found me
Now I lay in your arms
I am safe from all harm with you
You found me
When I could not find you
Did not know what to do
But you did
You knew where I was
And you found me
I’m glad you found me
So glad you found me

Safe

“For you alone, oh Lord, make me dwell in safety” Psalm 4:8:

Safety from the ravages of sin
Safety from the error of my ways,
Safety from the darkness within
Safety from the troubles of my days
Safety from the tempters luring voice
Safety from the storms in the night
Safety from the world and all it’s noise
Safety from the things that block the light

You, Lord make me dwell there.
Safe from all danger
Safe from all harm.
Safe from myself when I wander away.
Safe from the thief who would hinder my way.
Safe from the wiles that satan employs.
Safe from His trials that would steal my joy
Safe from confusion that takes away peace
Safe from the tempter who tries to appease
Safe from the things that would steal all my praise
Safe in the arms of the Lord of all grace
Safe in the mercy that He does bestow
Safe in the love that He brought here below

I am set apart by the Lord
And He hears my prayers
He has put gladness in my heart
He makes me lie down in peace
He sets me apart
And keeps me safe
