“Resting in the Secret Place”

22 April 2016

I am writing a devotional called “Resting in the Secret Place.”

It’s about spending time with the Father and Jesus to receive everything we need. This includes our deepest satisfaction, identity, worth, and purpose.

We need intimacy with the Lord every day to be able to function in life!

We “live” by the words He shares with us.

Jesus said:  “It is written: ‘Man does not live by bread alone , but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”   Matthew 4:4

Jesus modeled listening to His Father alone every day while He was a man.

Jesus says,” Whatever I say is just what the Father told me to say.” Jn 12:50.

He was always listening to the voice of His Father. We need to learn to this as well

Each day’s reading in the devotional is  filled with words from Scriptures that reveal the deep benefits that intimacy with the Lord brings. 

 

I hope that it provides inspiration, and guidance on how to develop a closer relationship with the Lord.

 

I will be sharing excerpts here on my blog regularly , along with daily words of encouragement.

 

Blessings

May the Lord encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every way

Praying this for you today: Encouragement in your hearts and strength you in all you are doing.
2 Thessalonians 2:16,17
 May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.

Thanks for visiting my website. For years, I have been wanting to share my artwork with others. For the past twenty-some years, I have been teaching my children, but have never lost my love for art and my desire to use the gift that God has given to me.

I hope that you enjoy this site and will share it with others. Prints of all the pieces seen here are available for purchase. I can also reproduce any of the paintings, drawings or sketches in their original media or can meet with you for consultation on private works on commission.
