Beloved. There have been many battles raging in the past season. Many are still continuing until this day.
Your pursuer has been at your neck and you are worn out. Do not forget that you have a Refuge, Dear One. Come to Me, My weary warrior. There is a rest for you. Cease from your own works.
By Grace you are saved, by Grace are you healed, by Grace shall you be protected and provided for. Come away with Me, My Love, to the Secluded Place.
Come to the Secret Place. I shall hide you under the shadow of My Wings. I shall hide you from the enemy. He has been defeated at the Cross. The battle is Mine and I have declared that IT IS FINISHED.
I give strength to the weary and when you lack might, I shall increase your strength. I shall give you rest from this present war. Take refuge in the Shadow of My wings until the destruction passes by.
You dwell in My tent forever, your refuge is in the shelter of My Wings. Not by might, not by power, but by My Spirit. By faith, rise up My Love, and come away. I AM your Rest. You abide under the Shadow of the Almighty.
Surely, I shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler. Your enemy shall be utterly confused. He shall search for you and not find you. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things, My Warrior Bride. Let Me take you under My Wing. Neither adversary nor disaster shall touch the Apple of My Eye. In the Shadow of My Wings, you shall sing for joy.
“He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the deadly pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings shall you trust,” Psalm 91:1-4.
