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.
 
Many times when My children enter into times of pain and conflict, they shut down in their ability to hear My voice. The voice of the circumstance drowns out Mine causing confusion and feelings of abandonment.
 
It is during these moments in life, I am the closest to you. I am the very breath that sustains you during the most challenging times of your daily walk. I never leave you, but remain faithful to you, guiding you the entire way.
 
I provide all the answers to every one of your questions, but you need to come into the sanctuary of My presence to receive. To stay in your current state of mind means you can never hear from Me. Trying to hear Me from your unsubmitted soul, is like trying to hear 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 into My presence, the secret place of My Spirit. This is home to your spirit man and it is from this place, all things become clear. You gain understanding and revelation to all of your questions. Pain, hurt, offense, anger, misunderstanding, and vain imaginations leave in My glorious presence.
 
My sanctuary is open and accessible 24/7. I welcome you to come and ask Me anything that is on your heart. When you are in My presence, I guarantee you will hear My voice and the voice of the stranger you will not hear because it fades away in the majesty of who I Am in your midst!
 
Come into My sanctuary where everything makes sense!
 
Lord Jesus, there is no other place I would rather be than in Your beautiful presence. You meet me in this glorious place fulfilling my every heart's desire. My will literally bows and melts into Yours when I surrender within Your sanctuary. I desire to come into Your presence, but the busyness and distractions of life bombard me every day. I know these strategies come from the enemy with the intention of keeping me from entering Your presence. I ask 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 soul. I want to hear You above everything else! In Your Precious Name, Amen!
