The Secret Place – Part 6
Ps 91:1 – He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. NKJV
There has been this recurring thought that the Lord has brought to me several times over the past few weeks. It has found its way into everything I have been teaching lately. The thought is this,
“The principles of the Word work at the highest level of efficiency through close fellowship with the Lord.”
“There is no true victory without fellowship with the Lord.”
In thinking about 2019 and all the good teaching and Word that we have heard and looking at 2020 and thinking about the prophetic words that have been spoken over the Body of Christ and over our church here, I realize that God’s intent in teaching and declaring is not to produce principled robots of obedience but rather those who through fellowship express His nature and desire in the world where He has stationed them. God desires fellowship and that is why He has given a “Secret Place” to every person on the planet.
In this series, we are going to look at some ways to have and maintain close fellowship with the Lord.
Part 6 – James by the Holy Spirit wrote a message to the church in his day that probably surprised some of them because they were a scattered church due to persecution. James instructed them to count all their situation joy! When we count our trials joy we put into process a spiritual force that lands us in the place of perfect and complete lacking nothing. If we do not count it joy the opposite will manifest. Rise up in faith and obedience today and see the salvation of the Lord as you are a doer of His Word.
