Day 64: Rest in My Shadow
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”
Psalms 91:1-2 NKJV
Psalm 23:6, Hebrews 4:12-13, 1 John 2:1-2, Ephesians 5:26-27, Romans 5:1-5, Ephesians 1:3-14, Psalm 46:10 NASB, 2 Timothy 2:25-26 NLT, Psalm 36:5-7
Beloved child, you are mine. I sit with you in your secret place and I follow you all the days of your life. I see your heart and your intentions. If you fall into sin, come back to me quickly in repentance and receive my forgiveness. You are a washed, purified vessel. Stand tall, knowing my favor is upon you. As you walk with me, I strengthen your character. I care about the character and hearts of my children. I love to come alongside my kids during trials and storms, building your trust and teaching you who you are in me. Many of my children don’t understand sonship. They believe they must work and strive for this. The enemy has told them lies and twisted my gospel. This thing is simple. I came to rescue and set free. You receive sonship at salvation and then live in radical surrender from the place of being my beloved. You must fix your eyes on me and walk in step with me. Don’t focus on others, focus on me. We walk on an unfamiliar path…unfamiliar to the world. Give me more of your ear. Press in. Seek me and rest in my shadow. There is no striving. Tell those around you about my unfailing love.

PART TWO: 90 Daily Devotionals and Activation
"Many Christians want to know God’s will for their lives, to hear God’s voice and obey his will. Yet the busyness of our lives and a culture of constant distraction make it hard--almost impossible--to listen in obedience to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. I am grateful, then, that Ashley Edwards has given us this clear, accessible guide to hearing God’s voice. It teaches us about the identity of our heavenly Father, our identity as his beloved children, and practices we can engage in to hear his will for our lives. It also includes ninety days of devotionals meant to open our hearts to the leadings of the Holy Spirit. Highly recommended!"

"Ashley has created a book with the Father that oozes a vulnerability that is only found in a deep and genuine relationship. She shares how the Lord unlocked her heart and her five senses to better hear His still small voice. The truth in this book will bring any reader an increased understanding and revelation on how to grow in hearing the voice of their Heavenly Father."
