especially when going through hard times, sadness, uneasiness, uncertainity and . we seek for a place in which the Lord will deliver us from such things, that He will bring us to a place where we will be free from such things and be able to live joyfully and in a place of serenity.
we are seeking a heavely place on earth, a place that does not exist. the place we are seeking is a place in which the Lord-as we ask, will reveal to us but it will not be a place of the earth-it will be a place of concious awareness of heaven. for there cannot be physcial place of serenity amongst evil, although there can be a spiritual state of serenity while we live within the world. a place that will allow us to come into the presence of the Lord.
For as I have mentioned earlier- in this world, everything will fade away-what is given can be taken away. but in the Kingdom, what is given such as spiritual gifts and grace, forgviness, mercy, love – cannot be taken. the heavenly place you are seeking will be a place where it cannot be shaken, it cannot be taken and it will stand forever-even in the darkest hour we can come into that place and find rest and be still with God.
may you begin to seek and pray for revelation of your Holy Place, may the Lord bring you into that state and allow you to feel the serenity you are seeking.
“so let us be thankful for we have a Kingdom that cannot be shaken. we should worship God in a way that pleases him with respect and fear” Hebrews 12:28
Heavenly Father, I thank you that even in the midst of this world and unsettlement, with you we can come into a state of your Holy Presence. That we can be brought into awareness of heaven even while in the world. I pray we may come to that place and meet you where we are, and be brought to where you desire us to be-emtionally, spiritully, physcially. Thank you Lord for your love and peace, Amen.
“The Lord reached down from above and took me; he pulled me from the deep water. He saved me from my powerful enemies, from those who hated me, because they were too strong for me. they attacked me at my time of trouble but the Lord supported me. He took me to a safe place. because he delights in me, he saved me.” Psalm 18:16-19
