A Snippet of Encouragement

More than anything in the world right now, I want to encourage you.

I want to reiterate , that even though our world is in chaos, and our hearts are torn by all our eyes see;

We must … not .. be … afraid.

How is that even possible you ask?

By dwelling in the “Secret place” with God.

Here is a good place to begin.

Prayer for Safety from Enemies (Physical, Spiritual, Economic)

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me!
For my soul trusts in You;
And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,
Until these calamities have passed by.
I will cry out to God Most High,
To God who performs all things for me.
He shall send from heaven and save me;
He reproaches the one who would swallow me up. Selah
God shall send forth His mercy and His truth. Psalm 57:1-3 (NKJV)

Even though; Hot indignation seizes me because of the wicked, who forsake your law.
Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my sojourning.
I remember your name in the night, O Lord, and keep your law. Psalm 119::53-55 

How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts!
My soul longs, yes, faints for the courts of the Lord; (I am safe here)
my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God.

Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.

4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house, ever singing your praise! Selah

5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you, in whose heart are the highways to Zion.

As they go through the Valley of Baca (weeping) they make it a place of springs; the early rain also covers it with pools.

They go from strength to strength; each one appears before God in Zion.

O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah

Behold our shield, O God; look on the face of your anointed!

10 For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.

12 O Lord of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you!

Psalm 84

(Selah = Pause, and quietly think of that)

Find encouragement in the Lord.

Until next time …
