Covered

Habakkuk 2-14.jpg

“Covered”
COVERED:
By Grace,
By mercy,
In love, 
Because of the blood shed for us.

INVITED:
To enter absolute shalom/peace,
To step out from under every false cover,
And to be hidden in the shelter of El Shaddai.

RESTING THERE:
Lingering in the presence of Unconditional Love.
Discovering that everything past, present, and future is covered by Love.

As you remain in/under his covering,
Every hurt, sorrow, wound, sin is
Covered by his presence,
Which is his love.
Beautiful as new fallen snow,
Warm and secure like a weighted blanket.

BECOMING:
Free to be unencumbered by the “what if”,
Both the past and the future.
Able to rest in “this moment”
Which is an unending next moment with Abba.

Notes:
Grace is God’s cover.

Cover the negative (thoughts, beliefs) with positive and the negative will die.
Just like nothing can live under the sea except that which is designed to thrive in that environment,
negative thoughts and habits will be extinguished
because they cannot exist under pure and holy Light which is Truth .

Sin cannot thrive and will eventually die under the cover of Grace.
Grace is love.
Love casts out fear and brings to death all that is not viable under love/grace.

We are covered and swaddled in his love.

Taking every thought captive in part means bringing them under cover.
A covert operation is often under cover, hidden in plain sight like snow covers debris.

The ocean covers everything on the bottom of the sea .
Clothes cover us.
We are clothed in the righteousness of God

Philippians 4:8 8 Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart].
Psalm 91:4 KJV He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
NLT He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
NHEB (New Heart English) He will cover you with his feathers. Under his wings you will take refuge. His faithfulness is a shield and a wall

Habakkuk 2:14 NJV For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

Rev 21:6 ESV And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment.

Kairos

Kairos

There are moments….
Gifts in time…
When time slows…
You recognize that right now,
In this moment,
You are safe.

Hearts open.
Walls collapse.
Emotions may arise,
Or be calmed.

In that moment,
All else pales because
You are in Koinonia,
With God and with,
Those around you.

It is a Kairos time,
Time apart from time.
A time set apart and holy.

Sometimes there are words.
Often there are no words.

During this time.

Known or unknown to you,
God Himself is:
Ministering to you,
Loving you,
Touching you,
Restoring you.

The dictionary defines Kairos time as: a moment of indeterminate time in which an event of significance happens. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kairos)
Koinonia is fellowship, association, community, communion, joint participation….

Rocky Path?

Rocky Path?
 
Some days are harder than other days,
Some days are easy and fun.
 
But in EVERY day,
Every moment OF every day,
God is with us.
 
We often think we know what a particular day will bring.
We don’t actually.
 
A day with things we dread can end up being a wonderful God rich day,
Likewise an unexpected tragedy can occur to mar what we anticipated being a perfect day.
 
But and the but is a big but… God is NEVER surprised and is right there with us with his everlasting arms under us.
 
Psalm 56:3-4a When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.
 
Like in this picture boulders or rocks may mark the path but we can ALWAYS look past those to LIVING WATER, Jesus who is always with us. Who is with us while we traverse the rocky times or places too.

 

Reset to Rest

reset.jpg

Beloved,
Just use the reset button.
When life is overwhelming
In any given moment:

Remember what you know
Escape into My presence
Stay as long as necessary
Exchange your perception for mine
Then go forward renewed by My love and in My strength.

You ARE my daughter (son).
I AM is always WITH you.
Therefore “I AM”, and that means all you need too,
Is always available.
During every moment of life.

 

Come to me ALL you who TRAVAIL or are heavy laden and I will GIVE you rest is not an idle invitation. It is an invitation to pause from within any given moment, any circumstance, any situation that life brings and simply “be” with Me. In so doing your entire being will enter the REST of God. That means that no matter what is going on, you will have peace.

One way to RESET is to begin and end each day in my Word and/or listening to my heart with your heart.

Then go forward renewed by My love  and in My strength.
Matthew 11:28

NIV: ”Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Berean: Come to Me, all those toiling and being burdened, and I will give you rest.

God’s Word: “Come to me, all who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest.
