Psalm 32:7Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.”

I will worship the Lord, For he is worthy. I will lat down my sword, The Prince of peace is His Name. King of the flood, the Lord is Mighty The Lord can quench the evil flame. He is my Peace!

I commence this read in worship… And with such emotion. …

You are my hiding place. You always fill my heart with songs of deliverance whenever I am weary and afraid. No matter the storms and heartaches.

I searched hither and thither and yon, for a place to hide my agony. I found Him and He showed me Peace; which lay right inside me.

I speak to thee, seeker of solace, not from a separate or superior place, but as one who has walked in similar shoes along similar paths. I sought solace, begged for peace, had faith in the possibility of happiness, as I longed for the seemingly endless heartache to stop and the healing to begin. I have threaded the path to find peace, not comfort and ease, but peace in the midst of discomfort and dis-ease. I found compassion for myself and for others, residing in my heart.

I speak to thee, he who desires to be useful to God, he who desires to be on the narrow path. That desire is a grace, and if followed in humility, these desires of your soul for wholeness and healing will lead to submission to the Lord and his will for you.

The difference between breakthrough and lack is the Grace of God. The empowering grace of God gives you the ability to manifest the promises of God. Once you discover how to withdraw from within what God has already given you, your life will never be the same again. Your desires and longings will lead you to become capable of discernment of the Lord’s will for you.

We are never nearer to God than when we are troubled. In times of comfort and ease we forget him. In the worst of times, we suddenly remember Him. Sometimes the answer is the help we pray for. Sometimes the answer is “Lean on me, and you will survive and thrive.
Psalm 9:9 “The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.”

The healing has begun, child of God, infant in trust and patience. Mature your trust, mature your patience, and you will see your healing is happening in the Lord’s time and in the Lord’s way. That is where faith becomes powerful; when we allow the Lord to do his work!!

God is my hiding place. In his presence I hide because there is fullness of joy. Whom have I in Heaven and on Earth, but you? I desire you more than anything. My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever and I seek solace in Him…Hallelujah! God Bless.
