This morning as I sit here, I heard loud and clear, “DO NOT FORSAKE THE SECRET PLACE!!!”
There are many distractions going on for the last 2-3 days suddenly. The purpose of the sudden fiery darts of distractions are as follows:
- to keep you from praying
- to to keep you from focusing on the vision God gave you
- to keep you from being able to get in the Word
- to keep you specifically focused on the fiery darts
This is what I just heard:
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” -John 10:10
Satan comes to steal, kill, and destroy. These darts are specific to steal, kill, and destroy your focus on the vision/task that God has given you. These darts are also specific to steal, kill, and destroy your JOY! These are very strategic darts upon the Body of Christ right now. Especially those that carry a new thing to birth in this hour!
Let me ask you something:
If a thief came into the place you live suddenly, how would you react? Stop and think about this process for a moment.
Wouldn’t you automatically get in defense mode? Wouldn’t you be quick to act?
Is it any different, when the thief, satan, comes to steal, kill, and destroy any area of your life?
What if it wasn’t just you? A thief comes into the house and its you and your family? Would you just sit there?
How is it any different when satan comes in to steal, kill, and destroy your mindset, heart, relationships, finances, health and other areas of your life and your family’s life? Is it any different? The answer is no, it is not any different. Use the authority you have in Christ! You are seated in Heavenly places!
“6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.” – Ephesians 2:6-7
Be careful and be alert!
“Be sober, be vigilant; because[a] your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” – 1 Peter 5:8
What does a hungry lion devour? They look for a “weak” prey. The enemy throws the darts right at your weakness. Stand your guard!
GET INTO THE GARDEN PLACE WITH JESUS!
Sure we all have our things and can say that we are so busy. Did you know being too busy is a distraction and speaks of where your priorities are. It’s time to reprioritize!
Just heard this:
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” – Matthew 6:33
God needs to be first in your life! Put Him first and everything in your life will simply align and you will be able to walk in His promised rest.
Give God the first fruits of your day! After all the very breath you breathe was given to you by our living God! Start with just a 5 minutes in the morning.
I have 3 children and a husband that need the attention in the weekday mornings. The kids have to get ready to go to school and my wonderful husband has to get ready to go to work. No matter what happens (even if I wake up 45 minutes late), I go anoint my head with oil and give God at least 5 minutes before I do anything at all. If I get late, it may be only 2-3 minutes and thats ok.
Simply, I am determined to give God the first fruits of my day. It took some time to get to that point but I keep persisting and asking God to help me work it out. Taking this step sets the course for the day period! If you are able to pray longer in the mornings by all means do it! It is very powerful and you will definitely feel a big difference!
“How?” you say.
Wake up, humble yourself before God and openly praise God like Job: “You are the God who gives and you are the God who takes away, praise be the name of the Lord our God!” (Job 1) Surrender yourself, your household, your dwelling place, everything under yours and your family’s stewardship, and the schedule of your day all under the blood of Jesus under the control of God almighty. When you do this declare that His ways are higher than your ways and that His thoughts are higher than your thoughts!
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
10 “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,
11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”
This is time to DOUBLE your time with God. There is a time where we pray, read bible, worship, present our prayer requests and decree and declare over situations and circumstances. Now, there is a time where you need to also set aside DAILY time to just sit before God. Just turn on some worship music in the background, clear your mind (surrender ur thoughts and mind to God) get on your knees and say, “Lord Here I am, speak to me, I am listening.” Once you do this, just wait no longer how long it takes. It may be right away, or a few minutes or an hour, just wait on Him. You will be surprised! This is the secret place! It’s time we be the listener and listen to what God has to say to us.
Go, Jesus is waiting for you in the Garden! Do NOT forsake the secret place!
