Prayer Points: The Secret Place of Protection 

Amoungst all the pestilence and danger all around there is a secret place. In this place there is deliverence from the snare of the fowler(Psalm 91:3).  As believers our faith prayers of declaring that God is our hiding place and security seals us under a protected dwelling place. Below are some points to consider on staying under God’s protection. 

1) Making God our habitation.

   

  God promises to deliver us when we make him our habitation and set our love upon him. When we know His name there is assurance we will be set on high. 



 

The secret place where we reside and dwell is where our praises flow unhinderedly.  Our praises is where God will always be. 




Hinderences to the Secret Place:

Drunkenness – When we are not sober we are open to excess of any evil. It gives Satan legal access to wreck havoc in our physical, mental and spiritual well being. Being filled with the Spirit is the solution to being set free from the snare of drunkenness whether physically, spiritually or mentally. “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess, but be filled with the Spirit.”(Ephesians 5:18)




2) Setting Our Love Upon the Lord 


Where there is love there is no room for fear. Torment is not from God. Even when a host may encamp around us, when we abide is setting our love upon God our hearts don’t need to fear cause in loving on the Lord we remain in that secret place. When war rises up against us when we abide in love we can have confidence. 

Dwelling in God’s house, beholding His beauty and inquiring of Him in His temple are some ways we set our love upon Him through faithfulness and seeking after Him. 

As we trust that God will lift our head above our enemies we can sing praises unto Him and offer sacrifices of joy. 

Anxious and troubled many of us lack that ONE THING when we look in the spiritual mirror and see the reflection from  pain and failure. If the truth be told many of us struggle with being consistent with that ONE THING that God is asking of us. 

3) Knowing God’s name 


  In the secret place of protection we know that God is a strong tower and as the righteous that’s where we run and find safety(Proverbs 18:10). Knowing who God is and His ways gives Him access to be and do who He is in our lives. 

God shine your truth on us that we will learn to continually make you our habitation, set our love upon you and know your name. Help us to stand with the armour of power and protection that we are  shielded in your presence. May we continually decree and declare your promises trusting that the work is already done and believing that they will manifest just like you said. 

In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

5 Lessons From Mental Health

Mental Health affects everyone in some way. On this World Mental Health Day, I reflect on the mental difficulties and suffering that many encounter each day and how they still matter and are still needed and important.

There’s all sorts of things that can trigger or cause people to struggle with their mental health. Mental Illness is not limited to a certain status of people, because there are many people who both publicly and privately deal with these situations whether they are wealthy or living in poverty. Even the very successful or underdog can be touched in these areas. Below are some highlighted lessons to consider on mental health.

 

1) Our mental health will either positively or negatively influence other parts of our health. Often times people with a mental challenge are overwhelmed with  physical fatigue.

 

2) Natural and spiritual cures do exist for mental illness. I tend not to say much when it comes to whether or not a person should take antidepressants or other prescribed medication. I believe it all depends on what’s best and would work well for the individual. Just because a person doesn’t take the prescribed doesn’t mean they are superior or foolish and just because someone does that they are wrong or better off. The natural cures such as herbs and spiritual cures through a continual connection with Jesus do bring great results for many.

 

3) Mental Illness doesn’t define a person. You don’t know who a person truly is, by looking solely at their mental challenge. There are some very wonderful, gifted  and anointed people who may publicly and privately face depression and/or anxiety attacks.

 

4) Awareness and positively sharing your story matters. There’s always someone out there that needs to either be more aware or hear that story that can impact lives.

 

5) Getting the support and help you need doesn’t make you inferior. We all need help and support with any challenge we face in life. Got to do what needs to be done.
