Ezekiel 10:1-11:25; Hebrews 6:1-20; Psalm 105:16-36; Proverbs 27:1-2
A quiet place out of the way
where thoughts collect and
waft to heaven
where He hears.
A safe place between
two or more who call upon
in the day of trouble,
surrounded by the shield of Faith,
smoldering at their feet.
A holy place where
truth and righteousness
uphold weak arms
and strengthen feeble knees,
giving second wind
to battle wearied hearts.
The place where His Glory dwells
and we see His pierced
hands and feet,
His smile, the twinkle in His eyes,
and feel our hearts beat
where we linger
“This is what the Sovereign Lord says, ‘Although I sent them far away among the nations
and scattered them among the countries, yet for a little while I have been a sanctuary for
them in the countries where they have gone.'” Ezekiel 11:16
Lord God, some days the fight is strong. Satan attacks with lies and deception. We grow weary. Thank you that we can come to you for rest–You are our sanctuary. You give us respite and help us to run again the race set before us. Keep us strong in the one true faith; to keep our eyes on Jesus; to trust Him as One who has gone before us. In His name we pray, Amen.
“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain where Jesus who went before us, has entered on our behalf.” Hebrews 6:19-20
