In this season where it seems everything man made is being shaken and anything of God remains, the Lord is also saying He wants our joy to remain. How is it possible for our joy to remain? The Lord’s answer is to dwell in the secret place, to abide in Him, and He in us, for without Him we can do nothing. So that while the storm rages, at the end of the day we can look out the window and say, “Was there a storm out there?” You see it’s not the storms of life that defeat us, it’s what we do in the midst of the storm that defeats us or puts us over. As we sit in the secret place, the Lord wants to instruct us and teach us in the way we should go, so He gets to point us in the right direction and guide us His way, then His joy in us will remain.
