We must be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit in all that we do, to walk and talk with Him in the cool of the day. He knows the desires of our heart and will meet us where we are. If you desire quiet time to worship Him, He will give it to you no matter where you are at because if you dwell in the secret place, you are in the position of worship at all times.
This is the day the Lord has made and we shall rejoice and be glad in it. Never allow the enemy to steal your joy and the blessings God has given us by dwelling in the place of uncertainty, doubt, unbelief and worry. Be thankful for the peace and safety and our many blessings for they are far more than many have at this time especially those going through great persecution.
At times the enemy may make you feel guilty because you have so much and many are going through so much and without. But don't receive the accusations of the enemy saying that you aren't doing enough or that you aren't serving enough or praying enough. If the Holy Spirit leads you, you are in the position to receive the burden of the Lord. If you have none at a time, just worship Him because that is the highest form of prayer.
Hidden in Him
Rejoice that your life is hidden in Him and that your name is written in the Lamb's book of life. Forevermore we will be able to sit at His feet and learn more about His kingdom and how you can serve Him just by loving Him. We are to love one another just like He loves us to live in the spirit of forgiveness and grace forbearing one another. Allow His resurrection power and healing to flow through you by walking in His spirit crucifying the lusts of the flesh, the eyes and the pride of life. Yes, rejoice because He has begun a good work and He is faithful to complete it.
I felt inspired to write all this because even though I might not get many quiet times caring for Levi I felt His presence fall upon me in the middle of the kitchen. I had some beautiful worship music my dear daughter in the Lord gave me. She is such a jewel! I found myself sitting on the floor just basking in His presence. At church Sunday I wasn't able to go as deep in worship as I desire because of being hindered but God makes it up for surely He gives us the desires of our heart and it is mainly to worship Him in His secret place.
A word brought forth to encourage God's people. Just know that I love you when you come under attack from the enemy know that I take what the enemy is doing against you and turning it around for your good for you know that nothing can harm you or separate you from My love. If you are one with Me and you are hidden within Me, the enemy cannot harm the most precious thing that you have and that is your relationship with Me. That is the highest commodity that you have, the thing that is most important and valuable to you.
Today is the day the Lord has made and we are to rejoice and be glad no matter what the circumstance that we face knowing that it all will work together for our good. If we are not in open rebellion or in willful sin, then God promises good to come through our trials and tribulations conforming us into the image of His son. The Lord orders the steps of the righteous. No matter what you may be going through God is in it. The enemy cannot do anything without God allowing it. Just like with Job the enemy had to go before the Throne of God to ask permission before he could touch Job or anything to do with his life.
Dear one, I am calling you to My side to walk with Me and to talk with Me in the cool of the day. Come morning or evening I want to be with you as a way of life of close communion with you for these are the latter days, and you need to know Me not to know of Me but to know Me intimately. Many have gone off to do their own thing and have left Me out. They think they are still walking with Me but they are following after a counterfeit spirit that they think is Me.
