The Secret Place…. It is here where you are kept, safe and secure and will not be run over when you run into this Strong Tower of safety….. It is here where His thoughts are revealed and each moment is redeemed and captured and packed with revelation and glory in its stillness.
The offer is available for all to enter, but only few are able to abide here, for while there is safety, while there is peace, while there is revelation of the knowledge of God here…… there is also holy fear….. We will all fear for it is deception to say you have no fear, we will all fear. The issue is not whether we will, but whom we will.
The secret place is a holy place of privacy and intimacy and I hear the Lord saying that we can walk in this place even in the crowd – we can walk in this place even in the midst of chaos, there is a hiddenness in the shelter of the Almighty….
The secret place is that place of affirmation and trust, when all others around you are critical, imposing, interfering, and filled with anxiety, this place is a shield about you, to guard your heart from taking in what does not beautify.
The waters of heaven will wash away the debris that was left over from the fire, the residue of ash and the wood that was destroyed and remained in this place but has no place there.
In this political season, and season of distraction, lies, fake news, fair weather friends, economic and geographic turbulence, the invitation is .. “Come”
Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD,
“Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone,
A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed.
He who believes in it will not be disturbed.
17″I will make justice the measuring line
And righteousness the level;
Then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies
And the waters will overflow the secret place.
18″Your covenant with death will be canceled,
And your pact with Sheol will not stand;
When the overwhelming scourge passes through,
Then you become its trampling place.
