“You Found Me” by MercyMe
“You found me—never, never, never gonna be the same…I am yours and You are mine. You will never have to hide. Before the heavens, before the earth I knew exactly where you were. And I am yours and You are mine! Only You are Lord. You are mine.”
Do you remember playing ‘hide and seek’ when you were a kid? Did you ever hide in such a good place that you were worried after awhile of sitting there that you would not be found by the person who did the counting? In life God knows where each lost sheep is, and he is longing to find each one of us and bring us into the fold of his love. This song expresses the joy of being found by God. True joy is being “found by God” when we are lost in our sin. We are found and forgiven through the blood of Jesus. We become part of God’s forever family, and we never have to worry about being lost again. Even if there are times when we wander, our heavenly shepherd is not far away, ready to guide us back to be close to him.
1 Peter 1:8-9 “Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.”
Questions: Did you like playing ‘hide and seek’ when you were a child? Do you sometimes play hide and seek with God? What was it like for you when God ‘found’ you? Are you feeling lost right now, longing for God to find you? Have you personally experienced the “inexpressible and glorious joy” of salvation like Peter describes?
Prayer Power: Pray for those who are lost, that they will grow in their desire to be found by God. Pray for yourself and your loved ones who are feeling a little lost right now and need God’s shepherd’s touch of love and guidance.
