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.
Deep in My heart I have a special place for you to dwell to be kept safe, to be ministered to, to be refreshed, built up, edified. My great grace is poured out upon you there deep in My heart. I want you to bask in My everlasting streams of love there. Be refreshed, My people, and know that I am always with you even in the deep and darkest night. Many are experiencing a place they've never been before and don't even know how they got there but I want to tell you that being there is not without waste. Every moment of your life there is a purpose for it building you up to be My people.
What is strange fire? It is a sacrifice offered up to God with wrong motives and/or with hearts not right towards one another. Remember Ananias and Sapphira! (Acts 5:1-11) God will not receive! Once I had a dream I was in a large room with a high ceiling and it was very noisy even though I was the only one in this room. There were masquerade masks floating around in the ceiling and at my feet were these little twisters. The Lord showed me these were spirits of hypocrisy and undercurrents of backbiting and gossip.
You are coming up to a new dimension in warfare, and I want you to be ready to exercise your authority like never before. Yes, I want you to take a stand for the land, and decree the promises that I have made to you. You need to rise up in faith, and accept nothing less than the best that I have for you. No more are you to go about like a chicken scratching in the dirt, but you are to rise up to be the eagle I called you to be, soaring high above the powers and principalities, and using your own storms and trials of life to lift you up.
