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!

There’s A Message In Your Storm

tree-164025_640

We all face storms of different kinds. The visible – natural storm of lightning and hard rain and sounds of thundering and heavy winds, can be reflection or simile of the violent and painful force many face in their emotions, finances, relationships, minds and more. God always has a message in every storm that He wants us to hear, listen and obey.

Sometimes it takes the ragging seas and roaring winds to get our attention. Pride, worldly and fleshly desires often get in the way. No one is exempt from doing nothing and everyone needs chastening and correction from the loving Father. While shedding silent or physical tears consider, Lord what are you saying to me/us in this storm? The disturbance doesn’t always come because we are being punished. Everyone faces challenging and tempest times. In the midst of the gale, God will pick you up even after a fall. Below are some highlights that we can consider while going through.

 God must remain #1: Earthly and material possessions will not be a lasting refuge and strength when a twister and tornado of chaos shows up.

Develop a growing trust: As our trust grows we know that there are some things that only the Almighty God can do and will do and that nothing can keep us from His power, provision and protection.

   Revelation is revealed: Sometimes it’s in the darkest moments and whirlwind explosions that divine revelation is poured out into our spirits and hearts. We hear him in that voice that comes to bring clarity, comfort, conviction and connection.

  Are you currently in a storm? What are some things that you do that helps you endure?
