We can run but we cannot hide
And no matter where we go…
From the eyes of the Lord we can’t escape
And from His presence we can’t forego.
Our soul is naked and bare indeed
As He knows our every thought,
And every intent of our heart and mind
From every known source.
We may think our soulish cobwebs
Are hidden from His sight,
But everything is registered
By His knowledge and His might.
Although we run, although we jump
And choose to ignore His presence,
His desire is to bring us home
Through every trial and lesson.
Let’s know that He is angry
With the wicked every day,
And His unconditional love is for His sheep
Who walk according to His ways.
We can run we can hide
But our frame is not hidden from His sight,
And when we humble ourselves to acknowledge this
We surrender the inevitable fight.
We should relent at the thought
That a holy God is pursuing us;
As at the end of the day His is the victory
And His sovereignty is enough.
But from certain things we need to run
As they vex our soul indeed;
Particulary when they drain us
And our soul they do not feed.
Let’s run from negativity
And from those who burden our soul,
Whose intentions are not sincere
And whose actions are crude and bold.
Let’s run from false religions
That focus on our good works,
Rather then the finished work of Christ on the cross
And His pure and utmost worth.
Today is the day of salvation
Let’s not harden our heart when God knocks,
Since its the very best gift we’ll ever receive
When the key to eternity unlocks.
Let’s run the race with endurance
Laying aside every weight and sin,
As we run to Jesus the finisher of our faith
So we run the race to win.
