God On The Move

God On The Move

Today from Jeremiah 32:21 Rose introduces another of the prophetic writings God has inspired her with. Keep in mind that when God makes a prophetic statement, proclamation, or promise it is usually contingent on the response of those to whom He has spoken. Yes His word and promise will ultimately be fulfilled but by an […]

Power From Above

Power From Above

Micah obviously lived in an environment where wicked and false prophets were leading God’s people astray; delivering God’s message to them he distinguishes himself as God’s prophet by saying, “But truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord” 3:8. As God’s people we are promised power to live and act differently […]

The Shepherd Psalm

The Shepherd Psalm

Perhaps Psalm 23 is the best known chapter in the Bible. It compares the loving care and provision of Father God to His children with that of a shepherd caring and providing for his sheep. He leads the sheep to places where every need they may have is supplied. The phrase ”He restores my soul” […]

The Entrance

The Entrance

In Psalm 23:6 the Amplified Bible says, “… through the length of days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place.” This could possibly be applied to eternity, but I think the application is for this life. So how do I enter into His holy presence? There is only one […]

“He Who Dwells”

“He Who Dwells”

Psalm 91 is an essay on the blessings of dwelling in God’s secret place, under His covering, in His tabernacle, His home, His presence, (see Psalm 27:5 and 31:19-20). The Psalm speaks in three different voices, the voice of prophetic utterance declaring the benefits of those abiding in God’s presence, (this will include living and […]

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 […]

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 […]

Better… (Part 5)

Better… (Part 5)

Proverbs 14:2 says, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death”, and the same words are repeated in 16:25. The truth is that the fallen nature of man drives him through darkness, and by deception makes him think he is on the right way, while all the time his […]

You Can Sing In The Night

You Can Sing In The Night

There is an old song that says, “You can have a song in your heart in the night”, and Psalm 42:8 certainly backs that up saying, “The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, And in the night His song shall be with me.” Certainly darkness covers the earth today; not the darkness that […]

A Secret Place

A Secret Place

In a world that is filled with anxiety, unrest, and fear, our heart cries out for a secret place of refuge from the “storm”. That place of refuge is not found by vacationing on a remote tropical island, a white-sand beach, or a mountain top cottage; it is only found in the presence of God, […]
