A PLACE BY HIM

 
Exodus 33:21
And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock. [KJV]

Prayer for the sick in today’s audio version: http://bit.ly/1oId3qs

It was masquerade festival in the village. Ade the son of chief Aweje followed other children to the village square to watch masquerades perform. As customary, it was time for masquerade to chase and whip people. Other children were whipped so hard that they had bruises but Ade simply ran to his father who wrapped him with his cloth; from there Ade watched how other children were beaten. Ade was spared from brutal beatings because he had a father to run to.

Every child has a father, even the bastards do. The difference is in the legitimacy of their birth. One of the many benefits of being a legitimate child is security from your father.

If you are born again, you are legitimate and you are not to suffer the fate of bastards, yet, one very important thing you must do is stay in the ‘place by Him'. This is the place where access to the abundance that is in God (your father) is possible. It is a place that is higher than you; a place of safety. The psalmist wrote in Psalm 61:2b “when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” [KJV]

Go into today knowing that you are God's child and your father has provisions for you. Know also that it is by standing in this place that is by Him that you can access His protection and provisions for you. This place is the place of fellowship and intimacy.

Develop a more intimate relationship with your father and you will walk in the abundance that is in Him.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, Please lead me to that rock that is higher than I. help me to remain there. Amen.
