How do you move from teaching to experience? Its not enough to know or hear about it.
One of my grandsons challenged me greatly last week when he said, “Grandpa, I want to ask you a question. How can I do this at home? When I come to church I am so excited, but how can I do it at home?”
That is a question that adults need to be asking!
How do we make this happen at home? How do we move from just hearing the teaching to experiencing it?
This is what we will look at today.
We have talked about:
God came to Abram and said, “Do not be afraid, I am your shield and great reward.” I am your shield. I will go before you, be behind you, and cover you on your right and left side. And inside the protection of my shield will be a great reward!
Proverbs says, “The name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and are safe.”
David said, “For you, Lord, bless the righteous. With favor you will surround them like a shield.”
Do you know that God wants you living everyday with His favor surrounding you and being your shield. The secret place of the Most High. The favor of the Lord!
“For those who trust in the Lord are like Mt. Zion, which cannot be moved!” Are you that stable? Are you that secure?
When we will abide in that place, not only is the name of the Lord a strong tower that we run into but our life is anchored and secured in Him! We can’t be moved!
“The Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart trusted in Him and I am helped. Therefore my heart greatly rejoices and with my song I will praise Him.”
“Hear my cry, O God;
Attend to my prayer.From the end of the earth
I will cry to You,
When my heart is overwhelmed;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For You have been a shelter for me,
A strong tower from the enemy.
I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;
I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.”
The secret place should be our habitation forever.
