In a vision, I saw a Child of God in the midst of a Golden Cloud.
They were surrounded by this glorious cloud and I asked Father what this was and I heard, “It is a BEAUTIFUL QUIETNESS. It is the Sound of Stillness. It is the Secret Place. It is the BEAUTY of My Holiness.”
“Beloved. Though you feel as if I have been silent lately, do not fret, Dear One.
I AM keeping you close in My Stillness. For the enemy desires to “Draw you out.”
He wants to lure you into feelings of anxiety and fear. But do not worry, My Love. I hold you safely in My Arms.
Just be still and know that I AM God. I AM not always in the Fire, or in the Wind, but I also come to you IN STILLNESS.
It is My Peace that passes all understanding. It is My Glory. I AM speaking comfortable words to you.
Just rest in My Stillness. In quietness and confidence is your strength. Remember that My Word says that I WILL FIGHT FOR YOU, you need only be still.
You do not have to strive any more, Beloved. Just enter My Rest. For it is written, “Let the weary rest, I AM your Place of repose.”
You who dwell in the Secret Place of the Most High abide under the shadow of the Almighty, I cover you with My Pinions, and under My Wings, you can trust.
Be still, My Child, be confident and know that I AM your God.”
