How To Dwell In God’s Secret Place [4]

Thursday 26th September 2019 Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- Psalm 91

Topic:- How To Dwell In God’s Secret Place [4]

Text:- Psalm 91:1

5. Let the joy of the Lord be your strength. We desire to abide in God’s presence where there is not only protection but also “fulness of joy”. See Psalm 16:11.
It’s interesting to note that the Jews believe the Spirit of the Lord will not manifest Himself where there is sadness or depression. That makes sense to me because if you are sad or depressed, that means you’re not believing God. If you are afraid or feel defeated, you’re out of faith. In fact, part of the curse in Deuteronomy 28:66.
Think about it, negative emotions can’t get a foothold in our lives unless we turn loose of the promises of God that say we’re delivered, that say God is our source of protection, provision and every other good thing!
It just boils down to this that, “We have to live by faith and trust in God.” In Him we have already been delivered from the whole curse. We’re protected from danger, sickness, lack or any other bad thing that’s under the curse. God promised us in Psalm 91:14.
Get your eyes on God, He is your help and deliverance. Make the decision to abide in the secret place and declare Him to be your refuge. Spend time with God and His Word. Meditate on scriptures about protection until you are confident that you have it. See Psalm 121:1-2.
If doubt creeps in, take spiritual action fast! Get your shield of faith back up, keep your words straight, listen to faith tapes, go to faith-filled meetings, do whatever it takes to get your heart anchored in the truth. Don’t listen to Satan’s lies.

Remember, we have a refuge or a covering that is greater than anything in the world and more powerful than any enemy that can come against us.
Get a picture in your mind and heart of God encircling you, taking care of you and protecting you. The more you walk with Him and trust Him, the stronger that armor and protection become. And that’s something to rejoice about!
The joy of the Lord is your strength. See Nehemiah 8:10; Psalm 5:11.
No matter what is happening in the world, you can rejoice because God’s got you covered!

Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, help me to abide and dwell in Your presence always henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Glorious Thursday!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
