A Craving For Deep Rest
I have a stirring in my heart from the Holy Spirit as I write this message.
The Lord is revealing a sound in the earth, coming from the hearts and deep cries of so many of His people right now. Perhaps it might even be you as you read. There is a cry of hunger for His sure, safe presence in difficult times and in changing times.
The world and its voices of influence, humanistic subtleties, and constant technology and it’s sounds, bring about an overload of weariness to all people, and there is a greater need for a place of rest for the warriors of truth who are very aware of the pressures that have not stopped mounting for many years now.
Do You Crave the Secret Rest of God?
That intimate “you and Him” time? Not just the basic devotional readings or corporate worship and prayer gatherings. I mean that “place” or room or location to go where you can wrestle, cry, wait, and listen. To rest in the arms of Peace. It is a good thing to crave the company of the Lord!
There is much treachery occurring in the evil plans of darkness and the people held captive by it these days!
It can bring a real sense of despair, broken heartedness, and shock when you encounter this type of thing and when it attempts to destroy your hope and confidence in what the Lord Jesus has set you apart for to express in His Power and in His name.
Delays, Delays, Delays!
So many right now are nearly at their wits end waiting for God to relieve them of sorrow, disillusionment and battle fatigue!
“My soul faints with longing for your rescue, but I have put my hope in your word,” Psalm 119:8.
Nothing Can Satisfy Dry Lips Like Water!
We are in a time where no persons opinions, no one’s books are going to satisfy that craving, that need for a thirst quenching drink of companionship with God.
We long to hear words from someone that tell us everything is going to be all right! That our children will be safe, our homes protected, our basic needs provided! And yet! Nothing “out there” satisfies us fully!
You see Dear Beloved one…
The season of great hunger for the simple walk with Jesus… has arrived!
TIME WELL SPENT
Only time spent with him like a dear dear friend will fill the gaping ache you have.
He will speak, He will comfort, and He will show you what is true and what is false in the days ahead if you will return to that Place of companionship with Him. Away from the opinions of men and the noise of this life.
As you turn your heart and hopes towards him you will see compassion poured out upon you and you will then have his power of pure godly compassion and Wisdom driven grace to pour out on others.
Speak to Him with all of your heart, your longings, your heartaches, your dreams. And He will be there with arms of strength to rescue you from Despair.
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart,” Jeremiah 29:13.
“The LORD is good to those, whose hope is in Him, to the one who seeks Him,” Lamentations 3:25.

You could not have described how I feel with more accuracy! And yes, the ONLY haven of peace and tranquility is in spending time with Him. How I long to leave this wretched earth and go home where I belong! No more ‘through a glass darkly’ stuff then–only face to face forever!! Thanks for writing this.

Matthew 11:28-30 (NKJV)
28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
