Escape

 

When you are feeling
overwhelmed
and about to be
swallowed up

remember to call
upon My name
for nothing can
separate us.

A laid down life has a sure escape.

“If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, then they would have swallowed us alive, then the waters would have overwhelmed us. Blessed be the LORD. Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowler; the snare is broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 124:1,3,4,6,7,8 NKJV

Kept

 

I am your Keeper
who does not sleep
who preserves your soul
from evil schemes

who provides all
the shade you’ll need
and draws your eyes
to look at Me.

A laid down life is kept by the Lord.

“I will lift up my eyes to the hills – from whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade at your right hand. The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul.” Psalm 121:1,2,3,5,7 NKJV

Enduring

 

Give thanks to Me
for I am good
and My mercy
endures forever

trusting in Me
your Strength and Song
more than you do
each other.

A laid down life has an enduring Mercy.

“Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! Because His mercy endures forever. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. The LORD is my strength and song , and He has become my salvation.” Psalm 118:1,8,14 NKJV

Saving Truth

 

I came first
to Israel
but then
to Gentiles too

so that everyone
everywhere
could know
My saving truth.

A laid down life is showered with merciful kindness.

“Oh, praise the LORD, all you Gentiles! Laud Him, all you peoples! For His merciful kindness is great toward us, and the truth of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD!” Psalm 117:1-2 NKJV

Your Shield

 

You cannot trust
in idols
they do not see
or hear

trust only in
your King of Glory
your true help
and shield.

A laid down life has a trustworthy help and shield.

“Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but to Your name give glory. Because of Your mercy, because of Your truth. Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. Eyes they have, but they do not see; they have ears, but they do not hear. You who fear the LORD, trust in the LORD; He is their help and their shield.” Psalm 115:1,4,5,11. NKJV

Seated

 

I am the LORD your God
who dwells on high
who sees everything
in the earth and skies

who lifts and rises up
from the ash and dust
and seats at the table
as one in Us.

A laid down life is lifted up and seated.

“Who is like the LORD our God, who dwells on high; who humbles Himself to behold the things that are in the heavens and in the earth. He raises the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy out of the ash heap, that He may seat Him with princes. Praise the LORD!” Psalm 113:5,6,7,8,9 NKJV

Steadfast

 

Your heart will
remain steadfast
as you
trust in Me

your Light
who arises
always helping
you to see.

A laid down life has a Light in the darkness.

“Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness. His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD. His heart is established.” Psalm 112:4,7,8 NKJV

Praise

 

There are somethings
that you do
which will truly
last

like how your praise
of Me endures
forever
holding fast.

A laid down life gives enduring praise.

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.” Psalm 111:10 NKJV

Sit Here

 

I am
your priest forever
sitting at
My Father’s right hand

and in
the beauty of holiness
I’ll reign
over all the land.

A laid down life has the Rod of Strength.

“The LORD said to my LORD, ‘Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies Your footstool.’ The LORD shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of your enemies! Your people shall be volunteers in the day of Your power; in the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth. The LORD has sworn and will not relent, ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.'” Psalm 110:1-4 NKJV

He Has Done It

 

I am not silent
when they accuse
and speak lies
to condemn you

for My mercy says
“you’re already saved”
and all will see
of what you’re made.

A laid down life is safe from condemnation.

“Do not keep silent, O God of my praise! They have spoken against me with a lying tongue. They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, but I give myself to prayer. Help me, O LORD my God! Oh, save me according to Your mercy, that they may know that this is Your hand – that You, Lord, have done it!” Psalm 109:1,2,3,4,26,27 NKJV
