TUG OF WAR
I see the battle you face. It's a battle over what will command your attention. You feel dragged over the enemy lines. He is trying to pull you into the trap of feeling like he is winning. But I am the tie-breaker, for I am the Breaker! It is I who is pulling you into deeper intimacy! This is what the enemy fears most because he lost everything when he rebelled. He knows that He cannot touch you because you are hidden in Me.
Always remain close to the flame of My love that burns wildly for you. Rest in the finished work of the Cross, not in your flesh. For it's in Me you live, move and have your being. Come close to Me and let Me shine through you, for this terrorizes the enemy. Have no fear, for I am with you. I am your hiding place. Rest in My flames of love. Let Me consume you and you will be filled to overflowing.
Psalms 32:7 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Lord, you are my secret hiding place, protecting me from these troubles, surrounding me with songs of gladness! Your joyous shouts of rescue release my breakthrough. Pause in his presence
Psalm 119:114 Names of God Bible (NOG)
You are my hiding place and my shield. My hope is based on your word.
