I tend to be a hider by nature.
Which only reinforces what we learned about ourselves in the Garden.
When the going gets tough, we try to hide.
This past week, I had a break through while getting quiet in His Presence one morning. God revealed to me that i had agreed with a lie in a situation where something was done to me, which i thought had been long ago been put to bed & resolved.
God knew otherwise.
It was a sneaky lie, but one that tied me down in my spirit and hindered my desire to communicate openly. In fact, it caused me to hide away physically & emotionally as well, and God did not want for me to remain hidden in this way.
God sees it all, the beautiful, the sin, the past, the present, the future.
I had stopped embracing some of how i was made, and settled for a layer of invisibility which covered me in both a fear and a lie at the same time. It essentially tied part of me to the past in a way which hindered my moving forward into the pastures He is leading me towards.
God called me to trade this cloak in for His covering for me instead.
What a delight to wear a garment custom made for me!
There is a layer of invisibility woven into this must wear clothing too, but one I am so grateful to God He gifts to me.
When I remain in this covering garment, I am safe in His stronghold, my spirit invisible to the enemy’s glance. I have a love & peace secure in knowing I am with the One who adores me, freed me, restores me, protects me & wants me with Him forever.
He can keep me safe under His wing, essentially causing me to become invisible to all but Him. He Himself becomes my shield as I trust in Him & wear His cover.
Instead of trying to keep myself hidden out of shame, He keeps me hidden in His heart out of love.
If you too have sin or lies hidden away under layers of invisibility you think God isn’t aware of…..you need to think again.
There is nothing we can hide away that He is unaware of.
There is no place we can go where He won’t meet us there.
There is no lie or sin more powerful than the blood of Jesus!
Today, come out of hiding & hide yourself away in the secret place with Him. Ask Him if there is anything you have layered within you that you may not even be aware of, which needs to come out into the light as He makes the invisible visible. Strip off the lies, be cleansed of the sin. Open yourself to His touch, as He uproots, heals & makes you anew in Him.
Less of me hidden away means more of Him coming alive within me!
