“He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places” Ephesians 1:20

Father, Jesus having finished His work sat down beside You.  You have told us we are in Christ.  We are to stop striving and wait for You to move.  What more would You show me or say to me?

 

“You have the gist of it.  See yourself seated beside Jesus who is beside Me.  You are in My throne room.  All control is in My hands.  There is orderly movement as the angels go about My business.  There is peace.  There is joy.  You hear singing and music.  Can you imagine anything else here?”

 

No, Lord.  Because You are in complete control and there is only rejoicing to do Your will there is no turmoil, anxiety, or discord.  Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Especially, Lord, I want peace to reign in  my spirit, soul and body.  I need You very much.  I want to remain under Your hand of mercy, hope, healing, and blessing in Jesus’ Name.

 

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty.” (Ps. 9:1) 

 

The secret place is in Your Presence, Lord.  If I am in Your Presence anxiety, fear, and tension must flee.  Lord, show me how to stay there, to live in Your Presence.  Show me how to be at mental and emotional rest and peace.  My physical maladies distract me and the other realm is quick to take advantage.

 

“Peace.  Be still.”

 

How?

 

“Practice My Presence at all times.  Often it is your go to means of turning to Me to hear My voice.”

 

I want to feel close as a breath to You at all times.  In Your hand is joy and blessings.  Unless I am actively focusing on talking to You other things crowd in.  I need You, Lord, even for this.  How do I practice every moment  even when I am talking to others or thinking about other things?

 

“I want you to know.  I want you to have all the many blessings I have for you.  Keep seeking.”
