Daily Read – Deuteronomy 18:1-20:20; Luke 9:28-50; Psalm 73:1-28; Proverbs 12:10
 
 Psalm 73:16-17
When I thought how to understand this,
It was too painful for me -
Until I went into the sanctuary of God;
Then I understood their end.
 
When walking through pain and conflict, too often, My children shut their ears to My voice. The voice of the circumstance drowns out Mine causing confusion and feelings of abandonment.
 
It’s during these moments, you must know I am as close to you as ever. My very breath is what sustains you during the most challenging times in your daily walk. Remember, I want to guide you through these seasons in your life… just invite My guidance on your journey. 
 
I hold the answers to every one of your questions, so yield to Holy Spirit and run into the sanctuary of My presence where you can drink of Me.  If you remain in your current state of mind, you won’t clearly hear from My heart. When you try to hear Me from your unsubmitted soul, it’s like listening to a beautiful string quartet in the middle of a rock concert.
 
Emotions are screaming, barking out orders to your mind, which triggers volatile reactions and perceptions, and then translates everything through the filter of these overbearing emotions. Finally, your will follows suit forbidding you to hear truth.
 
Enter My presence, the secret place of My Spirit; it’s home to your spirit man and from this place, all things become clear. Revelation and understanding will pour from My heart answering your most pressing questions. Pain, hurt, offense, anger, fear, and vain imaginations vanish in the saturation of My glorious presence.
 
My sanctuary is open and accessible 24/7. Come and ask Me anything.  I always have time to talk and I guarantee you will not only hear My voice, you will recognize and reject the voice of the enemy.  Other voices will begin to fade away in the majesty of who I Am.
 
Come into My sanctuary where everything makes sense!
 
Lord Jesus, there’s no other place I would rather be than in Your beautiful presence. You meet me in this glorious place fulfilling my deepest heart's desire. My will literally bows and melts into Yours when I surrender within Your sanctuary. I desire to come, but busyness and the distractions of life bombard me every day. I know these strategies come from the enemy to hinder our times together. Lord, I pray for the discernment and foresight to not only recognize them as they come, but to thwart their effects on my life. I choose to live from this place and not from the place of my unsanctified soul. I want to hear Your voice above everything else!  I do have ears to hear!!!!
