As may have noticed, I am trying to figure things out with my computer. It keeps crashing. Another opportunity to either freak out or call out! Well, I am choosing the later. Amid all this the Lord still is calling me to come away in fellowship with Him. I need peace, not anxiety. This has been a real testing point for me. I admit the tension only deepens by dealing with things in my own strength. What was that we shared a couple of days ago? Oh, yeah, stop, drop and roll. Well, here I am again Lord.
I already had my time in the Word, given direction and was writing on Heartstrings when I lost it all. The reason why is being investigated. I would like to blame it on, whatever. But, that is enough about that! I read again in Psalm 91:1-2..."He who dwells in the secret place of the most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!" There we are, back to the source of our strength and power; in His presence.
I know many of you live in various countries and I am praying for you. God's Word is sufficient for anywhere on this planet! When we feel the enemy pressing in, whether a physical, gun in hand intruder or the enemy that engages war on our minds...we all need to find our shelter in God. There are enemies with names like pride, bitterness, unforgiveness, doubt and many others. There have been times when I disguises they wear are really 'good' and meaningful. But, wow! When I have invited them in to sit awhile, the atmosphere soon changes into chaos in my spirit. How to get them to leave? It takes knowing the Word of God, Who you belong to and singing the praises of God.
So many times, when God calls me asking, "Where are you?" it is the same call as when Adam and Eve were hiding from His presence because of sin. Hide and seek may seem a child's game but it is played by many adults too. Where are you? An important question! If we are abiding in His secret place then, we know where we are, in safety. Even if I am standing in the desert or high on a mountain, He is watching and calling. The noise of the city or the noise in your head, He is calling.
Fellowship is what the Lord offers and longs to share with us and keep us from evil. I am determined to allow God to fight this battle for me today. My personal countenance will be lifted up as I spend my time and thoughts in fellowship with Jesus. He will take my enemies down as I sit still before Him. The power they think they hold over me will dissolve as I lay everything at His feet. When I can't make things work, He is able to do it and better!
I will close today saying, "Here I am Lord!" God bless you and keep shining Light upon your pathway. He loves you so much! Remember that when the battle is waging.
Abundance is...He calls and I will answer.
