How you keep me, O’ Lord, beneath your precious watch in the night; you know everything, and nothing can happen without your allowing it.
The secret places of my heart lie wide open before you, and there is nothing I can deny; it is you who has personally woven every fiber of my body together with your mighty, loving hands.
When I awake in the morning from an evening of peaceful sleep; I give thanks to you first, Lord, for you have allowed my heart to continuously beat.
When I sit down at the table with my enemies gathered about me, I am not afraid because you are here; it is you who wages war against them in the heavenly places.
When I do good to my friends and foes, I bow my head low so that no one can know; because you, O’ Lord, have seen the works I have committed unto you, and that is all that I need in return.
There are times when I am so ashamed, and I can’t even look into the mirror; I feel unworthy, and despicable. All I can see is dirt upon all of my flesh; but you move your gentle fingers and wipe it from off of my face, and I am free from sin and disgrace.
I am crying. I am alone. There is not one person who can understand. I lift up my countenance and see you there with a single tear of empathy. You need no words, for your presence and your expression radiate love, and my pain is no longer misery.
Lord, when the world has its own plan, and everything moves in a flow against you…and I am lost, afraid, and despised; somehow, I seem to have this comfort and security. I suppose it is because I know I always have you at my side.
You lead me to the sunny meadows when there is rain and thunder; and I’ll never forget how you took my hand when I was blind, and laid me to rest in safety before you healed my sight.
I’m sorry, O’ Father, for all of those times when I was fixing my gaze upon my own reflection instead of yours. I’m sorry, O’ Father, for not trusting when all along you were saying, “My child! Come to me! I love you! You are safe!”
And there’s no other place right now I’d rather be, than abiding within the very heart of Jesus; for He is my secret place where I can shamelessly hide. There is no regret and no defeat here beneath your shadow; Almighty God, my Father, Adonai…
The Holy Spirit came upon me a few moments ago and I wrote this. I had tears in my eyes with each word. My dear, dear friends, this little poem isn’t just for me, but for you. This is why He gives these things to me to share with you…because He loves you so very much! More than you can imagine. His love for you is beyond anything you can even dare to fathom. Know this, His precious children…know it well..He Loves You!
It is written in the book of Psalms, 56:8 (You number my wanderings: put you my tears into your bottle: are they not in your book?) that all of our tears are collected in heaven. He knows your every joy, your every hurt, your everything!
I feel a sense of love from the Lord tonight for you. He wants you to know that He has gathered you all together in His arms..right now! You can’t see it, but you are resting in the arms of the Lord at this very moment! He has you close to His heart, and He loves you, dear reader…YES…YOU! You are that special! This isn’t coming from me; I promise! I wouldn’t dare make such claims without knowing for certain.
Be not afraid, children of the most high God; not only is Adonai with you, but securing you closely! Go forth boldly and proclaim this day, that Jesus Christ is Lord of Lord’s and King of King’s and that you serve Him alone! Amen!
This is a message from the Lord for His children. Receive it and believe it! God bless you!
