Day 35

Escaping Into God


In His presence is fullness of joy (Psalms 16:11)

Our God is a refuge. How wonderful it is to regularly go into the secret place of His presence! We are transformed as we spend time with Him through worship, prayer, anointed ministry, and/or seeking Him with others.

Romans 15:13 says, “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing.” Even though we can be strongly touched in a meeting, we need to be more con- cerned with this question: what happens in us when the meeting ends or the music stops?

We need to escape into God and not simply escape from ourselves. It’s possible to use the things of God as a diversion from our own need for personal healing. We may hope that the Spirit will do something, but without changing what we believe, it will only be short term. We cannot have a change in behavior without a change in the way we think.

What’s the solution? Do we stop spending time in His presence? Of course not, but we need to expect a growing hope for our lives as a fruit of our times with Him. God’s Spirit will loosen our spiritual soil so that the roots of hope- lessness and unworthiness can be pulled out. Then we are truly escaping into God.


Declare: I love God’s presence. He is my refuge and strength. Personal hope and joy are powerful fruits that come from my “hiding place” times with God.
