You are my secret place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah. Psalm 32:7.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
You got it! What? The way into the secret place and the secret place itself. A way hidden to the worldly but to you who know My Name, you have access at all times.
O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me; let them bring me to Your holy mountain and to Your dwelling places. Then I will go to the altar of God, to God, my gladness and exceeding joy; and upon the lyre I shall praise You, O God, my God. Psalm 43:3-4.
And I tell you to make haste, to be diligent and to run there quickly.
The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous runs into it and is set on high. Proverbs 18:10.
“Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My Name.” Psalm 91:14.
I am a very present refuge where you can find peace in time of trouble.
Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You in a time when You may be found; surely in a flood of great waters they will not reach him. You are my secret place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah. Psalm 32:6-7.
I speak of My secret place where I hold you close to Me and preserve you from trouble and sing over you with songs of deliverance. I comfort you there with My love. I am your refuge, your fortress, your hiding place, your secret place.
The LORD your God in your midst, the Mighty One, who saves; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you and keep you peaceful with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17.
Have you ever entered into this place of perfect shalom peace with Me when you are anxious, fearful, overwhelmed, tried, and in trouble?
For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; in the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock. And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me, and I will offer in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD. Psalm 27:5-6.
Where is My secret place?
O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the secret place of the steep pathway of ascent, let me see your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.” Song of Songs 2:14.
Then the LORD said, “Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the rock; and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by. Exodus 33:21-22.
Seek My face for I am seeking yours. You enter by faith but there is more.
For You have been a refuge for me, a tower of strength against the enemy. Let me dwell in Your tent forever; let me take refuge in the secret place of Your wings. Selah. Psalm 61:3-4. . . So I will sing praise to Your name forever. Psalm 61:8.
First, let Me explain what this place of grace is for it is deep within Me and deep within you. Deep calls unto deep. It is a place of heart to heart communication.
He only is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I shall not be shaken. On God my salvation and my glory rest; the rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah. Psalm 62:6-8.
In this passage of Psalm 62, My Holy Spirit through My beloved David is sharing with you about the secret place that you can enter and find Me to calm all your anxiety, fear, torment, weakness, defeat, and depression. It is the place where I lift all the trouble and darkness off you and take you to a precious embrace of shalom. Come, enter into the secret place, the most beautiful place of perfect peace as you rest in My love, My goodness, My comfort as I wipe every tear from your eyes!
It is the most precious and beautiful place in Heaven and on earth, for time and eternity, it is resting in My everlasting arms, it is being carried in My bosom, it is the place of deepest prayer but it is not prayer as people generally define it, rather it is a communication of our hearts, it is the place I make you whole. It is the place of restoration when you are overwhelmed with living life in the world. It is our secret place. It is the place where you are refreshed with peace that surpasses all understanding. The trials will still be there but they are no longer a source of anxiety, all you have is peace and joy in the Holy Spirit straight from My heart to yours.
And Jesus opened the way for you.
I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. John 10:9.
The LORD is My shepherd I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet healing waters of peace. He restores my soul. Psalm 23:2-3.
It is there your cup overflows with peace and joy beyond all you can hold. The place where I wipe every tear from your eyes.
For the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes. Revelation 7:17.
It is the place of peace beyond understanding in the midst of overwhelming floods of trouble in your life where you find refuge but more than that, you find your answers to life. You find your shalom peace. YHWH Shalom. That is My Covenant Name of promise to you, it simply means the LORD is peace. I AM peace and in Me you experience that you are peace as well.
For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for SHALOM and not for evil to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will restore your fortunes. Jeremiah 29:11-14.
It is the place of rest. It is the place that is My plan for you so that you go through life in perfect shalom peace no matter what flood of trouble hits. It is the place of perfect fellowship in the truest sense. A place of mutual and complete trust, each for the other. And you journey into that place on the wings of trust. No questions, no doubts in My love for you and My ability to fix everything in you and your life, only the trust that knowing Me in the deepest sense produces. And you have to speak it.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust!” Psalm 91:1-2.
And there is the path to the secret place, the path of trust, but there is much more, Jesus not only opened the way and leads you in, Jesus draws you into My bosom with Him even now.
No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him. John 1:18.
I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. John 14:3.
You have a retreat of refreshing in the midst of trouble. Strive to enter My rest. I offered the rest of the promised land to My people Israel but they refused to enter My rest because they had no faith in My promises, which means they had no trust in Me to perform what I had promised. They attributed to Me an evil intent to harm them and not prosper them as I had spoken. And that is what you are doing when you worry about your physical and financial needs. I have promised you healing and provision, you have only to seek My Kingdom and My righteousness first. And that is what I mean by you must strive, be diligent, make haste, to enter My rest. You must run to My secret place of rest with complete confidence and trust that I have the mercy, the comfort, the grace, and the answers you need right at the time you need them.
Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest, so is my beloved among the young men. In his shade I took great delight and sat down, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. He has brought me to his banquet hall, and his banner over me is love. Song of Songs 2:3-4.
And in My secret place you will take great delight and rest in My shade from the heat of the troubles of this world. And there you will eat the fruit of the Spirit and the banquet of My Word
Therefore, let us strive to enter into that rest, so that no one may fall after the same example of disobedience. Hebrews 4:11.
What is that disobedience of which I am speaking? It is not believing in My plans for your shalom and not evil. It is in not rejoicing always, praying without ceasing and giving constat thanks. It is railing against Me and crying in fear and unbelief in the face of the giants in your promised land. But David from his place of trust in Me brought down a giant that had put a whole army in fear with one very small stone in a sling shot.
Do you remember Nebuchadnezzar’s dream that Daniel interpreted as I revealed it to him? There were great and towering kingdoms that formed into an idol but a stone knocked them all to the ground and became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth. Daniel 2:34-35.
And where did Daniel get the revelation to interpret the king’s dream without even being told the dream by Nebuchadnezzar? In the secret place with Me. And it saved his life and the lives of all the kings advisers.
So Daniel went in and asked the king to give him time, that he might tell the king the interpretation. Then Daniel went to his house, and made the decision known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions, that they might seek mercies from the God of heaven concerning this secret, so that Daniel and his companions might not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. So Daniel blessed the God of heaven. Daniel 2:16-19.
When you are so overwhelmed with the demands of your day and you are ready to give in and give up, strive to enter My rest. Go to your bed as you retire late at night still trying to finish up the work and demands of your day and cover your head with you sheet as I taught My people to do under their prayer shawl and seek Me in the secret place and when you seek Me with your whole heart, you find Me and I give you songs in the night, visions, insights, revelation, and peace, great tremendous shalom peace.
Jesus died to give you shalom, continual shalom in he secret place in every storm, in every flood of trouble. He made peace (shalom) through the blood of His cross, reconciling you to Me as one.
But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our SHALOM fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed. Isaiah 53:5.
Clothed in Him you are insulated all around. No evil shal befall you no plague come near your tabernacle in My secret place. I am your hiding place in time of trouble and woe and it shall not come near you.
When life becomes overwhelming with trouble and work so that you are slipping into anxiety, do not start saying that it is just too much and you cannot take any more, instead run, strive against the anxiety and go into the secret place and pour out your heart before Me and I will sing songs of deliverance until your dark cloud of worry has lifted and I turn your mourning into dancing as we wake the dawn with our song. This is not something you can do alone, you do it with Me.
Jesus died to give shalom to all of you who had been in fear of death your whole lives long. But in My bosom there is no fear of death, it is just the door to realms of glory. For all of Heaven is a secret place in Me.
And it has pleased Me to give you, the little flock of My Son, the Kingdom now.
You got it! What? SHALOM. For you are in the bosom of El Shaddai.
Shalom means that you have the whole pie of life with no pieces missing. It means that you are whole in your spirit, soul (mind, will, and emotions), and your body. Perfect health, peace, provision, prosperity, good relationships filled with love and compassion, protection, direction, and perfection. No one missing, no one broken, and no one alone. It is the BLESSING of a prosperous, healthy, fruitful and peaceful life.
Now let us look at the word Shalom in Hebrew, My language, the Holy tongue. And you will see it includes Me, your Father, El Shaddai, My Son the good shepherd, and the living water of the Holy Spirit. Remember that Jesus as your shepherd leads you to springs of living water and I wiped every tear from your eyes. And that is shalom. And that is living in the secret place of shabbat shalom.
It is spelled with a shin (ש), a lamed (ל), a vav (ו), and a mem (ם). שלום
The shin (ש) is for My Name “Shaddai,” which means “enough” but it also has a root in “bosom” meaning like a nursing infant finds all its needs met at his mother’s bosom—fed, carried, cuddled, so do you in Me as your only needed source. I am more than enough for all your needs. Shaddai denotes Me, the Father and source of all. The shin is the twenty-first letter in the Hebrew alphabet and it is numerical value is 300.
Next is lamed (ל) which has the pictograph of a shepherd’s staff and the word lamed has the meaning of a teacher of students. Jesus is your good shepherd and your only teacher.
Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30.
The letter Lamed is formed from two other letters, the kaf and the vav, which kaf is the number 20 and vav is the number 6, so a total of 26 which is the number My name in Hebrew of יהוה
The next letter in shalom is vav which has the pictograph of a large nail or peg and its number is 6. Six is the number of man, since I made you on the sixth day. So in shalom you see Me, your Father, My Son the shepherd and teacher and Jesus took your humanity making you joined to the divine and My divinity living in your humanity in one seamless life. And also in the hand you see that Jesus was pierced for you and shed all His blood for you so you could have shalom.
The next letter is mem sofit, which just means mem is at the end of a word and the pictogram for mem is living water running, the Spirit. Its number is 40.
So if you add up the letters you get 300 + 30 + 6 +40=376 which reduces to 16 (1 + 6 = 7) which reduces to 7, and that is shabbat, the day I entered My rest and pulled you in with Me. And Jesus came and pulled back in for since Adam you had all gone astray like lost sheep but I laid upon Jesus the guilt of you all.
I love you. Make haste, be diligent, be zealous to enter My rest. Shalom!
