Tired of Bad News, depressing, discouraging reports? Who isn’t? Many have traded in their TV, cable, and news channels for something better. Some have chosen to put their hand up and refuse to listen to any of it. People are tired of the fear mongering, the hatred, the division, and the manipulation. Most people know there’s more to life and are on the move to find it.
I can’t think of anything more important I can share with you, today, than HOPE and solid answers. The Good News and uplifting truth that isn’t a fairy tale, fiction, or wishful thinking. It’s the Truth that will lift you and your family far above all the troubles in this world. Sounds impossible, doesn’t it?
The Truth is: There is a place of safety, peace, blessing and goodness in God where the devil cannot tread. This is the time to find and LIVE with the Lord, in that place. What do I mean? It’s not a physical place, so you don’t even have to leave your house to find it. But, it’s more real than anything you see with your eyes, and it’s worth far more than anything money can buy.
God looked ahead from the beginning and saw this present world as it is today. He knew we’d be desperately looking for help to make it through, help for our children, for our parents, our siblings, spouses, and dear friends. He left us clear instructions on how to find Him and all the peace, provisions, faith, healing, and the hope we desperately need. He spoke of a special place clearly in His Word in Psalm 91. It’s not imaginary, it’s a place in the Spirit that we are invited by the Lord to dwell with Him closely, while we live here on Earth. Think of it. He longs to dwell with us and He made a way for that to happen. But few find it. It’s a place of beauty in Him, that He created for us to join and experience with Him. Let’s learn more and take Him by the hand to find and dwell there with Him.
The Secret Place of the Most High God (Click here to watch this touching, short message, and learn more.)
You see, He created us for real, deep, rich, loving and close relationship with Him. It’s what He wants most with us. He created us with a soul and a spirit and placed us in a physical body (an Earth suit), to live out our days on this Earth. Before we reach eternity, the Bible says, God is Spirit, and Jesus said, He searches for those who worship Him in Spirit and Truth. This is how we connect with Him. Knowledge of God is the beginning, but God intended that knowledge of God to move us forward in faith, to develop and hunger spiritually for Him. What He has inshore for us, is far more than emotion and knowledge of Him. He created us to enjoy a spiritual heart to heart relationship with Him. The Holy Spirit is our Helper, here on Earth, to guide and draw us closer and closer to know Him more and more from the heart and in a deeply fulfilling spiritual way. So, where is this place, you ask? Where is the Door?
The Door: Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man comes unto the Father, except by Me.” This means. Accepting Jesus’ loving invitation to pick up our cross and follow Him, is the Way to walk with Him in relationship. It’s not imaginary. It’s a real relationship that starts and continues through prayer (talking with Him), walking with Him, delving deeper into His Word, worshipping Him, fellowshipping with His body of believers. We begin by surrendering all to Him (that’s the cross, “not my will, but Thine be done.”). All of these things are ways of interacting and communing with Him personally and deeply. It is Jesus who makes Our Heavenly Father known to us. The Holy Spirit helps us know them and walk with them and grow in a spiritual relationship with them. And it’s the most rewarding, exciting deep adventure we can have this side of Heaven. It’s a life of walking in real inner Peace.
PSALM 91, NIV
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.” – biblegateway.com
I INVITE YOU TO PRAY WITH ME: “Heavenly Father, I want to learn more about how to draw nearer to You. I want to be closer to You than ever before. I want to experience Your Peaceful, Loving Presence. When I read Psalm 91, I pray you will help me live it out with you. I admit that I need You, and I ask You to fill me, even now, with Your Holy Spirit. Change my heart and cleanse me from everything I’ve ever done, said, thought, or acted out that grieves You. I know I’ve fallen very short in my life. But, I want to know You more closely than I can possibly say. I want my family and I to spend eternity with You. Lord, we desperately need You to help us find and walk on Your straight and narrow path. Lead us. Help us walk willingly and wholeheartedly with you, together. On our own, we fail and we miss the mark…but I know in my heart, that as You help us, we can walk with You until it’s our time to come home to Heaven. Apart from You, it’s impossible, but WITH You, all things are possible. Please fill us with Your love, power and great grace. I invite You, even now, to pour out Your Spirit upon us, and transform us into everything you created us to be. In Jesus Name, I humbly and sincerely, pray and Thank You, Amen.”
