I heard, “Repose and Renew,” and “This is not a “redo” but a renew!”
And I saw the Mighty Lion of Judah. He doesn’t have to “try” to be magnificent, He just is. Every principality and power is subject to Him.
No evil thing can be in His Presence. In His Shadow is our peace and comfort. To His feet, we have come, knowing this is our Secret Place of Protection. There is no other Place to be in these last days.
“Beloved. Come to Me, My Weary One. At My Feet, you may lay down and rest.
Many things are troubling you, My Child. But I have said be anxious for nothing. I have not given you a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind.
You are hidden in Christ. You are hidden in the Secret Place of the Most High, abiding under the Shadow of the Almighty. Let your mind be still, Little One. Do not let your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
The King is your Father. The King is your Bridegroom. The King is your Fierce Protector and your Dread Champion.
Fix your eyes upon your Savior. The Kindness of your God and My Love has appeared; you are saved, Beloved, not by righteous acts but according to My Mercy and Grace.
I will make all things new. The evil things will be as they never happened. This is not a “redo” but a RENEW.
Behold, I AM doing a NEW thing. Even now, My Holy Spirit is renewing you as you rest in the Shadow of the Lion.
In My Presence is fullness of joy; at My Right Hand are pleasures forevermore!”
