Take me to the place where I belong, the place under the Shadow of Your wing, where I am to remain comforted and made safe, because I am close to Your Heart.
I can hear Your Heart beating with Love for me, and me alone You would have died for.
I must remember that You Love me with the same intensity as You Love your own Son.
Can I even fathom that, or even understand a minute portion of that love?
If I truly did, I would not be the same person. I would never struggle with unworthiness or shame or inadequacy. I would see myself as You see me to be that beautiful and lovely and overcoming Bride of Christ.
Open our eyes up to the Truth of Your word and make it come alive and life changing. We are tired of the same day in and day out without You moving mightily in our life.
We want to see the lame walk, the blind see, the mute speak, the death raised up, those made whole by Your power and grace.
We want to have the expenctancy of these signs follow those who believe. So many are reduced to praying Your Will and expected You to move always through the arm of the flesh and not just by Your power alone.
In other countries that have to trust wholeheartedly everything in their life to You, they see the miracles, signs, and wonders, but here in America, many are blinded by the lights, the distractions, those things they trust in solely, and then say they love You.
When do you get time in their life, when everything else dies down and when there is no more strength left to give?
Yes, I am talking about ministry that distracts and robs time with you and also holidays they say are of You. We are to be like Martha and Mary in Your perfect balance… sit at Your feet and draw close and also to go out with Your life lived through us.
Yes, this is the time of the last days when many are falling away through compromise and distraction.
Compromise can come by being too busy with what they think is of You and also by going after the lust of the flesh.
You have come to set the captives free to be One with You to delight in Your secret place and just rest by still waters and feel the cool breeze.
Help us to take the time to enjoy Your Presence and all that You have given us through nature. Yes, open our eyes so that we can see and experience You, fully in Jesus’ Name I pray.

Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website, shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at The Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before The Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
