Where Is God’s Secret Place? (Part 1)

Psalm 91 begins with the words “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” So the question of where His secret place is, is answered in this verse, it is under His shadow, (or we might say in His presence). This secret place is […]

The Desert Shall Rejoice

Isaiah 35 is a beautiful Messianic chapter with applications that are multifaceted. While some of it may have application to present day Israel, and it may apply to the future Messianic reign, there is also application to the present Messianic reign which is in the hearts and lives of the church of the redeemed, those […]

A Prayer Of Confidence

A Prayer Of Confidence

In Psalm 17, David references his own situation in which enemies and evil men have oppressed and surrounded him. He calls on God to be his vindicator, appealing to Him for His help. There is a neat thing about Scripture, where in portions like this, it focuses on the then present time and people, yet […]

Wisdom

Wisdom

Wisdom is personified in the book of Proverbs with God calling us to attend to His instructions, and retain and keep His words, which are the very foundations of His wisdom. 4:7 says, “Wisdom is the principle thing; Therefore get wisdom, and in all your getting get understanding.” Wisdom is the great empowering force enabling […]

Following The Presence

Following The Presence

After Israel’s 40-year detour of wondering in the wilderness, the new generation is finally ready to enter the promised land of Canaan. According to Joshua 3:1-5, the people left the old encampment and came to the Jordan, which was now the final barrier separating them from their new land, and here, they stopped, and waited until they received […]

The Secret Place

The Secret Place

Just reading causally, you may not recognize the significance and impact that psalm 91 should have upon us. In the first two verses, God is revealed not only by His Jewish National name, LORD (Yehhovaw or Yahwah, meaning Jehovah the self existent one), but also by three other titles; MOST HIGH (Elyone or Elyon showing […]

Resting Faith

Resting Faith

The fourth chapter of the book of Hebrews speaks about entering the place of God’s rest, using as a backdrop the Israelites, to whom He had promised to give the land of Canaan, “a land flowing with milk and honey” (meaning a land of abundant provision and blessings) (Exodus 3:8, 17; 13:5). God had promised […]

Conquering Fear By God’s Word

Conquering Fear By God’s Word

Fear and faith are at opposite ends of the spectrum. As the Bible says, “fear involves torment” (1 John 4:18). The fear we speak of (not to be confused with the awesome, reverential fear called the “fear of the Lord”) is designed by the enemy to bring us under bondage to worry, anxiety, agitation, stress, […]

The Word Of God

The Word Of God

As we begin this New Year, Rose and I plan, for some weeks, to be focusing these meditation thoughts around the word of God. When a poetic rhyme accompanies the meditation it has been written by Rose, and her insights set the theme for the meditations. She and I seek to work together, with the […]

To Save Or To Lose

To Save Or To Lose

Today, we continue from last weeks meditation, Full Surrender, looking at the picture Jesus drew from Luke 9; but now we’ll focus on Matthew’s account in 16:24-25, and the two words we are emphasizing is “save” and “lose”. In verse 25 He said, “For whoever desires to save his life, will lose it, but whoever […]
