In the Spirit, I saw a cave. A Child of God had gone there to escape some things in their life.
Some situations in their life had become too much for them to bear. Pain, sorrow, depression, fear and just the circumstances of life had caused them to run away.
It was like the Prophet Elijah ran to the cave to escape Jezebel, and like Elijah, you have even thought that death would be better than what you are going through. And I saw a fire burning, like a campfire.
I saw Jesus sitting with His Child just comforting him. He met him right where he was and had come to be his strength in the middle of his weakness, the Light in his darkness, and the Voice of Comfort in his sorrow and his Peace in the midst of the storm.
“Beloved. When the darkness threatens to close in around you, I will be your Light. When your song fades, I will sing over you.
When words fail you, I will be The Word ever working. When pain comes to steal your breath, I will be the Breath in your lungs.
When the fog of confusion surrounds you, I will remind you that you have the Mind of Christ. I will comfort you, for always remember My Child that I AM closer than the Shade at your right hand.
Yeshua is here. I neither slumber nor sleep. In quietness and confidence you will find new strength. It is okay to rest, Beloved. We will just commune together. You are in Me and I in you.
Where can you go from My Spirit? Where can you flee from My Presence?
If you go up to the heavens, I AM there; if you make your bed in the depths, I will be with you. If you take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there My Hand shall lead you, and My Right Hand shall hold you.
If you say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,” even the night shall be Light around you, My Child, Yes, the darkness hides not from Me but the night shall shine as the day: for the darkness and the light are both alike to Me.
I AM here to strengthen you, Dear One. We will sit together in the Stillness of My Love. I AM your Healer and Deliverer, the Mender of broken hearts, the Way Maker and the Miracle Worker.
When you are ready, you shall hear My Spirit asking you, “What are you doing here, My Child?”
I shall manifest Myself to you here in the Secret Place and you shall KNOW ME as I AM. And I shall bring you forth from this Fortress of Solitude renewed in mind, body and spirit, with a Resurrection Fire burning in your heart once again.
Know this, Beloved: Neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate you from The Love of God in Christ Jesus your LORD.”
“Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before The LORD.” And behold, The LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before The LORD, but The LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but The LORD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but The LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a STILL SMALL VOICE. So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”” 1 Kings 19:11-13.
“The LORD your God is in your midst, a Mighty One who will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet you by His love; He will exult over you with loud singing.” Zephaniah 3:17.
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 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. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30.
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:35-38.
Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,” even the night shall be light about me; indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to You.” Psalm 139:7-12.
“I will lift up my eyes to the hills — from whence comes my help?
My help comes from The LORD, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD is your keeper; The LORD is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; he shall preserve your soul.
The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore.” Psalm 121:1-8.
