I stand silently to listen for the one I love, waiting as long as it takes for the Lord to rescue me. For God alone has become my Savior. He alone is my safe place; his wrap-around presence always protects me. For he is my champion defender; there’s no risk of failure with God. So why would I let worry paralyze me, even when troubles multiply around me? | Psalm 62:1-2 (TPT).
I sense that the Lord is sending out an invitation for His Bride to linger in His presence. There are many distractions and worries attempting to hinder your time with Him—keeping you from the secret place—but it is here in that quiet place when you linger with Him that your joy and strength will be renewed.
In Song of Songs, Solomon writes about catching the foxes that spoil the blooming vineyards (Song of Songs 2:15). Do not allow the little foxes to spoil or hinder your time with your Bridegroom. Even as Mary chose the better thing and spent time at the feet of Jesus, you will find that as you spend time with your Savior, the pressure of the ‘urgent’ will fade away and soon become very insignificant.
Many are feeling the intense swirling of distractions and opposition, however, the Lord is working mightily behind the scenes in your life. There are surprises and ‘suddenlies’ in store for those who have remained faithful, even during the extreme times of adversity and drought. In the spirit, I see a cloud the size of a man’s hand (1 Kings 18:44). Where you have seen little to no movement, now things will begin to shift rapidly. The rain of the Lord’s blessings are getting ready to be poured out among His people!
Beloved, cast not away your confidence, nor get weary in well doing. Truly your season of reaping is closer than you realize; it’s right there at the door. Continue to linger in the Savior’s presence and be at peace. He is working all things together for your good. Rejoice, for the best is yet to come!
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28).
