(You Can Come Out Now)

<<Back to page 1....Next>>    

God has many names and this is only one of one hundred of his names each describing a piece of his character and nature. I really dig this one because it speaks clear that He is our weapon and glory means “all of the excellencies of God”. I have always had an awareness and a love for God. My first memory of prayer I was at my Granny and Papas at the breakfast table and my mother got choked and I immediately jumped off the chair as I was so small that my feet did not touch the ground, I ran to my Granny's downstairs bedroom closet and got inside and prayed a prayer that I still remember “God please don't take my mommy”. Instantly my Papa yelled out to me “Its OK you can come out now” and ever since I have chased God. I did not have a father in the home but I had something far greater I had the heavenly Father looking out for me. No matter what phase of life I went through I always had a love and relationship with the Father, even when I was a teenager out partying I would find myself at the end of the night on my knees repenting. It would confuse me after-all I was a sinner. In my adult life I discovered a scripture that said that God chastises those that he loves. I was moved to tears. I can honestly say that I have never been able to sin comfortably. I have read the Bible faithfully since I was eighteen and start my day with Thanksgiving and prayer. I cannot imagine not knowing him. That day at four or five years old proved to be symbolic for my life “running to my closet”. I was elated when I found the scripture that reads “Go to thy closet and pray to your Father in secret and he which sees in secret shall reward thee openly” AMAZING!!! Of all the places that I could have went that day I chose a closet not even knowing that this scripture treasure would be awaiting me. It was a divine connection. I did not even know how to read that much at that age but somehow I knew when I got inside of that closet that God would be waiting there for me.

We all know the child prayer “Now I lay me down to sleep” and many kids get comfort from that prayer but I have a very real and powerful prayer that is literally active, alive and operative which is what the Amplified Bible says about the Word of God. My aunt introduced me to Psalms 91 at eighteen years old and I have committed it to memory and declare it everyday. Gods protection has been undeniably with me since I was a child. I almost died three times before I even reached age seven but God...had a rescue waiting for me in each situation. I will write a book someday about the faithfulness and protection of God in my imperfect life and watch the skeptic cringe.

One of my outside dogs barked a lot last night and she never barks at nothing. She woke me up several times and I thought she was barking at a cat. The last time she woke me up a minute later we heard a huge crash that rocked our house. We got up and my husband of course is investigating and found nothing. I grabbed the flashlight and went on my deck to see if my fence had possibly collapsed and the big Locust tree that set in the middle of our yard had fell. It broke off twelve feet from the bottom and landed perfectly beside my deck not disturbing my flowers that were everywhere or all of my pretties on the railing, the bird feeder was not even out of place. The top of the tree was laying across our roof and there is a window on that side where the tree landed and the limbs literally sprayed around my window not even breaking it. I got up the next morning and stepped out on my deck and I was awe struck at the care of God. I walked down into my yard and began taking pictures and was left more amazed and so full up with gratitude that I could not stand it. Confirmation again of the power of Almighty Gods protection and the validity of his living words! He was my GLORIOUS SWORD yet again. He never sleeps and his Angels are present. My husband cut the tree up and it is now gone and there was zero damage on our roof, again confirmation. I want to share this prayer with all who read this. It has given me so much comfort through-out my life, it has given me confidence and rest for my soul. The times we live in today are saturated by fear and the word of God is the only antidote for fear. Lets stop chasing dragons to remove the many fears we have and are surrounded by and lets utilize something tangible and effective. You have to know God this is not a magic charm that works for anyone. You have to believe and honor the one who gave this awesome prayer of protection. It is not about perfection but rather relationship. If His kindness was merited on behavior then I would have been dead a long time ago. God is a God of hearts and seeks a relationship with his “masterpieces” which is what he calls us. I am still amazed by that considering all of the beautiful things he made, the many landscapes that take our breath away, the birds and butterflies and flowers the list is endless and yet he refers to us as his masterpieces amazing!


He that dwells in the secret place of the Most High God shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of The Almighty whose power No foe can withstand.

I will say of the Lord, You are my refuge, and my fortress, My God on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I confidently trust!

For then He will deliver you from the snare of the Fowler and from the deadly pestilence. Then He will cover you with His pinions and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge. His truth and faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.

You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow the evil plots and slanders of the wicked that flies by day.

Nor for the pestilence that stalks at darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and waste at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you. Only a spectator shall you be yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High as you witness the reward of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lord your refuge and the Most High your dwelling place there shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent.

For He will give His angels especial charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways of obedience and service.

They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.

You shall tread upon the lion and adder. The young lion and the serpent shall you trample underfoot. Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high because he knows my name has a personal knowledge of my mercy, love and kindness-trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no never!

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.

With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.
