A Fragrant Garden

A Fragrant Garden

A garden is a place of beauty, and productivity. God has a garden with two aspects; the first is that into which we enter and find the beauty, peace, rest, and refreshment of His presence as we fellowship with Him. It is here that we are fashioned and incorporated into His garden as the seed […]

Light For The Journey

Light For The Journey

Are you going through a dark tunnel? Is the road ahead dimmed by uncertainty? Do you have questions of why this or why that? Does it seem like darkness that is all around is weighing heavily upon you and oppressing you? Well I have good news for you today: God said, “I will make darkness […]

The Soul

The Soul

“My soul clings to the dust” (Psalm 119:25); from the Hebrew definition we learn that the soul is a “breathing creature”. The Amplified Bible reads, “My earthly life cleaves to the dust” and in the physical world this could apply to all that are born into it passing away in death. But there is also […]

Powerful Words

Powerful Words

You will notice in today’s poem (written by Rose Hill’s brother, Everett, as he reflected on Psalm 46) an oft-repeated phrase, “I am”. This is not only the title and name by which God introduced Himself to Moses and the people of Israel in Exodus 3:14, but it was and remains a present-tense statement for […]

Days Of Trouble

Days Of Trouble

Eliphaz may have been erroneous in his assessment that Job’s trouble was because of error in his lifestyle, but he had it right when he said, “…man is born to trouble…” (Job 5:7). Sorrow, labor, toil, grief, pain, trouble, misery, fatigue, and exhaustion, could all explain the original Hebrew word used here. If you have […]

How Do I Enter Into God’s Secret Place?

Since the secret place of God is in Jesus who became the physical manifestation of the rock upon which Moses stood, the physical manifestation of God and His presence, we can only enter through Him. He Himself declared in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, No man comes to the […]

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 […]

A New Thing

A New Thing

When God says, “I will do a new thing” in Isaiah 43:19, He does not mean that the old standards are no longer valid or not to be adhered to. Indeed, in Jeremiah 6:16 He says, “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk […]

God’s Transplant Center

God’s Transplant Center

Rebellion has been at the heart of sin and evil ever since its inception beginning with Satan who rose up against God and was cast down from his position of leadership in the heavenlies (Isaiah 14:12-14); he then incited man, God’s chief creation on earth, to rebel resulting in death and expulsion from the garden […]

So Great A Salvation

So Great A Salvation

Psalm 21, from where Rose’s poem for this meditation has been inspired, opens with the psalmist-king expressing joy and rejoicing in the salvation and strength of the Lord Yhovah, (Jehovah). Some expositors or commentators, as well as some Jewish Rabbis, view this Psalm as a picture of Messiah-king rising in victory. However, in the immediate […]
