I Myself will set you free, and you will go out with a joyful celebration. I Myself will lead you forth to live in peace. The mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands in exuberant applause! [Triune God…Isa 55:12]
ETERNAL PURPOSE: RELATIONSHIP. Abiding In My Father’s House II
Abba Father…here am I, Your child. I come running to You, with a reckless abandon… as I just climb up on Your lap, curl up in Your loving arms, and rest my weary head against Your bosom, at rest in You with an unruffled child-like rest…where You embrace me, kiss me, and hold me close to Your bosom, reassuring me so lovingly, so tenderly, so affectionately…
** ** …you are My child, in whom I am well-pleased. I love you with a fathomless love; you are the apple of My eye. I take great pleasure in you. Abide here with Me, in the shelter of the Most High…here in the Holy of Holies within the Heavenly Sanctuary, in My unclouded Presence…where you will find your home and your resting place in the shadow of the Almighty, sheltered in My loving arms. I am your Refuge and your Fortress, your God and Father, in Whom you may have an unwavering child-like trust and in Whom you may continually be at rest in an unruffled child-like rest…in My loving arms, ** **, where all is peaceful and calm, all is tranquil and unruffled.
Surely, ** **, I shall deliver you from the hidden traps and from deadly hazards. I shall cover you with My pinions, and under My wings you shall abide with Me in an unwavering child-like trust and find refuge. You will be safe in My care; My truth and My faithfulness will protect and defend you.
Abba Father…thank You for being merciful and gracious to me, O God, for my soul takes refuge and finds shelter and confidence in You; yes, in the shadow of Your wings will I take refuge and be confident until the calamities and destructive storms are passed. I confess and praise You, Father, with my whole heart; before the so called “gods” I sing praises to You! I worship toward Your holy temple and praise Your Name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth and faithfulness; for You have exalted above all else Your Name and Your Word. Your promises are backed by all the honor of Your Name! [Ps 57:1; 138:1-2]
My beloved child, you need not be afraid of any terror of the night, nor the sudden evil attacks of the enemy during the day, nor of any dreaded diseases that stalk in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death of disasters that surprise and lay waste at noonday.
Abba Father…I will lift up my eyes to the hills; from whence shall my help come? My help comes from You, Father, Who made Heaven and Earth. You will not allow my foot to slip or to be moved; my God and Father Who keeps me will not slumber! Behold, You Who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. O Lord, You are my keeper, my shade on my right hand. The sun shall not smite me by day, nor the moon by night. Father, You keep me safe from all evil; You keep watch over my life. You keep my going out and my coming in from this time forth and forevermore. [Ps 121]
A thousand may fall at your side, ** **, and ten thousand at your right hand… but these evils will not touch you. Safe and secure in the secret place of the Most High, you will be only a spectator as you witness the recompense of the wicked. Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever. They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the LORD. Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes. [Psalm 112:6–8]
Abba Father…You are my refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble. Therefore I will not fear, though the Earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. [Ps 46:1-2]
Because you have made Me your refuge, ** **, and the Most High your dwelling place, there shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your dwelling place. No evil, misfortune, or calamity shall come upon the righteous, but the wicked shall be filled with evil, misfortune, and calamity. [Prov 12:21] For I give My angels special charge over you, to accompany, defend, and preserve you in all your ways of obedience and service. They will steady you with their hands, and keep you from stumbling against the rocks on the pathway. You can safely meet a lion or step on poisonous snakes; you will walk unharmed among them…yes, even trample them beneath your feet!
I find rest, O my soul, in You alone, Father; my hope comes from You. You alone are my rock and my salvation; You are my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend upon You, Lord God Almighty; You are my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in Him at all times, O children of God! I pour out my heart to You, Father, for You are my refuge. [Ps 62:5-8]
Because you have set your love upon Me, My beloved child, therefore will I deliver you. I will set you on high, because you know and understand My Name through our deep and intimate Sacred Covenant relationship…knowing I will never, never leave you…I will never, ever forsake you…assuredly not!
Abba Father…You are near to all who call upon You, to all who call upon You sincerely and in truth. You fulfill the desires of those who reverently and worshipfully fear You; You also hear my cry and will save me. You preserve all those who love You, but all the wicked will You destroy. My mouth shall speak the praise of Your Name, Father; let all flesh bless Your holy Name forever and ever. [Ps 145:18-21]
You shall call upon Me, ** **, and I will answer you; I will be with you in trouble, I will deliver you and honor you. With long life will I satisfy you and show you My salvation.
One thing have I asked of You, Blessed Jesus, that will I seek, and insistently require: that I may dwell in Your House all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon Your beauty and delightful loveliness, and to meditate and inquire in Your temple. For in the day of trouble You hide me in Your shelter; in the secret place of Your tent most assuredly You hide me; You set me high upon a rock. You are my Strength and my Shield; my heart trusts in You, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song I will praise You! You, O Lord, are my Strength, and You are the Stronghold of salvation to me, Your anointed! [Ps 27:4-5; 28:7-8] Hallelujah!
Friends, brothers and sisters…
There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
Take my life and let it be:
