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

My Word

 

I will hide
My word in your heart
causing it
to grow

that it can be
a light as you walk
showing you where
to go.

A laid down life has God’s Word for a light and a lamp.

“Your word I have hidden in my heart, for You shall enlarge my heart. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. “. Psalm 119:11,32,105 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.

In your day
of trouble
call to Me
and I will hear

your voice
and supplication
I’m with you
always near.

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

His Presence

 

Just as
the sea fled
and Jordan
turned back

the power
of My Presence
is still real
and intact.

A laid down life is God’s sanctuary.

“When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange languages, Judah became His sanctuary, and Israel His dominion . The sea saw it and fled; Jordan turned back. Tremble , O earth, at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the God of Jacob.” Psalm 114:1,2,3,7 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
