A Prayer from Psalm 17


“I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes. Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.” Psalm 17:6-8

Lord, I call on You, I know and trust You will answer me. Show me the wonders of Your great and steadfast love. You have saved me and I find refuge in You. Keep me as the apple of Your eye. Hide me in the shadow of Your wings…

Being hidden in the steadfast love of our heavenly Father is a beautiful thing. To be hidden and sheltered and provided for and covered by His love gives us security and peace and contentment.

Think about the things we hide from others…our shame, our faults, the hidden sins, the jealousy, the pride.

Yet, with God…it is a beautiful and wonderful thing to be hidden. He sees the shame, the faults, the sins, the jealousy and pride. And He pulls us close, covers us with His wings and heals our hearts. Being hidden in Christ brings healing. Being hidden in Christ means our enemies can’t touch us. Our salvation and our hope and our joy is secure. We are covered. Covered in love. Healed by love.
