Psm. 31:20-24 19 Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men! 20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. 21 Blessed be the LORD: for he hath showed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city. 22 For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee. 23 O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer. 24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.

My people are about to see the greatness of My goodness for it has been laid up for those that fear Me. My heart is always turned towards the welfare of My people. I never slumber and I never sleep, and My thoughts are always turned toward My people, and their welfare.

And some, so many times, have felt rejected and abandoned by man, but I tell you that My thoughts were turned to them to hide them in the secret of My presence from the snares of men. What they perceived as rejection from man, was the protection of a loving Father. I have protected them so often, and so many times, from situations and from people that would have wrought destruction in their lives. So I hid them in the secret of My presence, where they were covered and protected.

And often I have even moved out of the way those that came with evil in their hearts, and that had evil plans and plots against My Beloved. I changed the course of those intent on doing wickedly towards My own, and I changed the path of My own so that they would not fail into a snare prepared for them at the hands of these. Knowest thou not that I have even given others over to the lust of their hearts that I might preserve My faithful ones?

But the enemy of the souls of My Own, has come with words of condemnation, even heaping coals on the head of My Beloved. The father of all lies has come to inflict wounds into the heart of My Own, telling them that they donít fit in, that they are unacceptable, that they are not worthy, and that they donít belong. Oh, he is the father of all lies, and the truth is not in him. And it has caused some of My people to begin to have to have fears and doubts about themselves. And it has even caused them to separate themselves from Me.

But, the lie has been exposed, and the truth has been revealed. And now the eyes of My people will be opened to My marvelous kindness. That which they thought was the rejection of man, was My loving protection. Oh, I have hidden My Own in the secret of My Presence hidden from the wickedness of man. Oh how great is My goodness that has been laid up for them that fear Me.

Eyes to see. This day the eyes of My people will be opened to see My marvelous kindness, love and protection from the wickedness of man.
