You are my hiding place and my shield of protection; I hope in Your word. – (Psalm 119:114, VOICE)
Hide me and protect me. I trust what You say. – (Psalm 119:114, ERV)
You are my refuge and my shield; Your word is my source of hope. – (Psalm 119:114, NLT)
Our hope and help when troubles and trials surround us, are found in Christ alone. He protects us and provides safety and comfort, despite how things seem. His word is the place that provides us reminder of the promises of His protection, granting us hope that we can hold firm. May we trust in the truth of His word, and rest in the shelter of His wings.
When the trials come,
there‘s a hiding place;
where we’re protected,
and covered by grace.
When we seek the Lord,
and trust in His word;
He’s our protection,
the hope we have heard.
He will be our shield,
our true hiding place;
we are always safe,
in His kind embrace.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are our refuge and shield, and that Your word is our source of hope. Thank You that when we seek You, we find You and You remain present and keep Your word. Thank You that You are loving and faithful forever. Forgive us for trying to navigate our trials on our own, rather than calling out to You and trusting the truth that You have promised. Teach us to trust You more, so that we would run to You and allow Your love to shield us through the storms. Show us how to love others so that they may see Your hope through the kindness we extend to them. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we run to You as our refuge and shield, as You are our Source of hope. Amen.
Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. – 2 Corinthians 3:5
