There is a Place By Me ( by Fenny West)

There is a place by Me,

Where peace is well-assured;

 Where thieves cannot break in

 And steal, damn and kill.

   

 There is a place of power;

The Place of My presence;

 Where you see My Face;

 A place of great grace.

The place is very special,

 For those who make Me special.

 In this place, you hear My voice,

 To drown all the limiting noise.

 This place provides a rock.

It is hewn from the Great Rock;

 A place where you can hide;

A place where you can feed.

This place brings strength.

 This place brings filling;

 A place of open heaven,

 Where there is no limitation.

 The world disdains this place;

My Word adorns this place.

This is a refining furnace;

 To make you shine all of your days.

My place is a place of glory,

 That will change your story.

There I will weave Myself into you;

And pour my oil upon you.

This place will place you high;

 This place will bring you nigh;

This place will separate you;

Bless you, beautify and launch you.

 More beautiful than Eden;

A place of purpose and vision;

Great garden, divine haven.

Obscure, yet laden with gem.

 Trade your gold for this place!

 Sell your shares and land for this place.

This is a place of sacrifice;

Pay the price to get the Prize.

This is a place of authority;

A place to trade labour for favour;

 From My light, you will see light,

To go and light the lives of men.

This is a place of integrity;

A place of great intimacy;

I in you and you in Me.

I, dining with you and you with Me.

 Come to the place of visitation;

I stretch My Hand of invitation.

 Come for great transformation;

 Come for mammoth rejuvenation.

 This is a place of inspiration;

The Place of New Creation;

A place second to none;

Reach out. What are you waiting for?!

 (…there is place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock Ex33:21)

1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, Consider my meditation.
2 Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and my God, For to You I will pray.
3 My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up.
Ps5:1-3

1 As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God.
2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?
Ps42:1-2

4 One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple.
5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.
6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORDPs27:4-6

35 Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.
Mark1:35

 The LORD said to my Lord, ” Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” ‘
Mark12:36

“Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things.
42 But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”Luke10:41-42

Paul

10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,
11 if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
Phil3:10-11

15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace,
16 to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood,
17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went to Arabia, and returned again to Damascus. Gsl1:15-17
