How are you feeling today? Has your day gotten off to a good start? Are you feeling fresh, brisk, on top of the world, like you can conquer anything that comes your way? Or, you may be feeling the very opposite today…dull, tired, wanting to crawl under the covers and not come out for a few days because the world seems to be on top of you, to where it has you all heavy and burdened down. You know, feelings can be tricky and deceiving, and we do have to get to the point where we’re not moved and governed by our different emotions. A lot of times, this can be easier said than done. Some days are better than others right? Hey, we’re all growing and learning here.
One thing I know for sure is, when it seems as if my emotions are trying to get the best of me, I have a secret place where I can go and vent, pray, scream, yell, cry, laugh, sing and give praise. It’s a place where I can be free to express my inner most thoughts to the One Who cares the most. I have found that God is the best One to turn to with any questions, doubts or concerns I may have at any given point in time. He understands way better than the next person. He knows where it hurts the most. He knows where I’m the most vulnerable and when I really need His overwhelming comfort and presence. There’s nothing like knowing I can always run to Him when I’m feeling as if the weight of the world is on my shoulders. He is always there, waiting to lift the load and carry it for me.
I want to encourage you, right now, wherever you may be, at this very moment. Let this scripture flood your soul, and read it out loud, so that you hear it, the enemy hears it, and it will sink deep in your heart. Ready let’s read:
“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust” (Psalm 91:1-2).
Friends, when you’re feeling overtaken by your emotions and it seems as if all is lost or that you have nowhere to turn, hear me when I say, turn to that secret place of the Most High. When you can’t get a grasp of what’s taking place all around you, run to The One Who knows exactly what and why things are transpiring the way they are, and He will give you a peace like no other. Go ahead, call on Him. Say, “God, I need You. Help me! Save me! I can’t do this on my own. I need Your guidance and direction. Help me to focus and keep my eyes on You, knowing that You will come to my rescue. Where you lead me, I will follow.”
Now trust Him with what You’ve just released and given over to Him. Whatever it is, it’s already done. God has taken care of it. Your job now is to rest and abide in The Secret Place. It’s already alright! Hold your head up and just begin to give Him praise. He’s got you my friends. Be blessed today!
