Hidden

fear-617131_1920 (1)

When the world of evil surrounds me
And beats a loud battle drum
I will not fear or lose confidence
I know where my Help comes from
So I will shout back the truth I’ve learned
With hope and joy on my tongue

For the LORD is my light and my salvation
A Warrior none can deny
I’m protected by the Prince of Peace
Concealed in his cloak of life
And He fights and defends me – always
Hidden in the power of Christ

When I’m caught in the struggle with sin
And start to lose sight of faith
He reminds me he’ll never leave me
He’s made a way of escape
And he tells me to be courageous
To be strong of heart and wait

When I die and I’m laid to rest
And come before the judgment seat
I won’t fear because I know his Word
I’ll proclaim what he’s promised me

Behind the lines

Psalm 27

1)The LORD is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?

5)For he will hide me in his shelter
in the day of trouble;
he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;
he will lift me high upon a rock.
~David

 

The Battle Prayer

The battle prayer goes out to war,
It sweats and fights to find the Lord,
But He already knows.
For He ordained our enemies,
To drop our hearts upon their knees,
So prep your battle clothes.

The battle prayer goes out for men,
To see the Christ and hope in Him,
And leave their sinful ways.
For many trust in strength of self,
In strongholds our hearts long have held,
Where idols gather praise.

The battle prayer goes out in faith,
When humbled warriors seek His face,
And bring their grief and fears.
For He does not leave nor forsake,
He strengthens us when terrors rage,
Emmanuel is near!

The battle prayer goes out for peace,
And pleas for help will never cease,
Until the war is won.
For in His name our hearts cry out,
Reveal Your glory and renown,
O Jesus, will You come?

The battle prayer goes out to war,
It sweats and fights to find the Lord,
And He’s found, Peace is found,
Yes, Christ is found – in victory.

Psalm 20 is a song and prayer to prepare for war and it applies to our battle of faith. It anticipates victory in the Davidic King, the Son of David, who reigns forever, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. He is our Victory. He is our Hope. Come, Lord Jesus!

The Unknown

Enter the unknown,
Blind, in a maze of broken mirrors,
And lose all control,
Deaf, but there’s a Hearer.
So cry out to Him,
For He knows something better,
And through the unknown,
His grace remains the answer.

Enter the unknown,
Walk, through a sandstorm in the desert,
Lost and forgotten,
Wait, to be delivered.
So hold on to Hope,
For He knows something better,
And through the unknown,
His grace remains the answer.

Behind the lines

As we enter the unknown of a new year, I’m reminded of God’s grace and providence in the story of Joseph and his brothers culminating in Genesis 50:19-21:

[19] But Joseph said to them, “Do not fear, for am I in the place of God? [20] As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today. [21] So do not fear; I will provide for you and your little ones.” Thus he comforted them and spoke kindly to them.
