“Experience the joyous mercies he gives to all who turn to hide themselves in him.”Ps.34 The way is not steep and rough but smooth ahead of you. Is.26:7
Somedays the road sure doesn’t look very smooth, only rocks and rubble are found on the path with unseen dips and twists that take their beating upon your soul.
There is the deep yearning in all of us to find that place to turn into and hide or turn out and fight against the obstacles in the way.
Where do you find yourself today?
Hiding, fighting or resting?
The way of God is the way of the heart. It is here that his spirit is working.
When you are always looking toward the outward circumstances to change there will be frustration and the road will be rough. But here in the cave of the heart is where God desires to meet you. He levels the ground before you, makes the road rise up to greet you where you currently are.
Then the path becomes smooth because he has made it so.
When you turn into God and into your inner self you will find your hidden self in God. Everything else that is false, insecurities and dependence will fade away.
Receive this blessing upon you today as you say yes to the path prepared for you.
Pause to breathe deeply and pray,
“Whatever comes this day I will receive freely as your life giving dew,
To raise me up and live my life for you.
May my soul drink deeply of your goodness and experience the mercies
You have for me when I turn into you.
May my hiding place be my meeting place with You
Where all false securities and false structures are no longer in my grasp.
Let my heart grow stronger in your peace and find rest for my soul to walk on the smooth ground ahead.
I turn over all my battles to you today for I know I am surrounded by love and
love fights all the battles for me.
Thank you beloved one of my soul
I hide myself in you.
May my hands reach out in expectation for the Holy Spirit to fill them with blessings and may I return blessings to those I meet in front of me.
Giving glory and honor to your beautiful name, Jesus.”
