From The Heart of a Seeker

Updated: Sep 25, 2021


Journal of a Presence Dweller & Glory Carrier



One night, I was dozing off to sleep when these scriptures flashed before me; Psalm 84:11; Psalm 63:1, Psalm 62:1 and Psalm 64:1, in that order. I knew that I had read those scriptures many times and a couple of them I could recall what they said, but I wasn’t certain about all of them.


I grabbed my bible and flipped through the pages to find each one of those scriptures. I wanted to know exactly what those scriptures said and see what message the Holy Spirit wanted to share with me.


Design with Ease

One by one, I read each one of those scriptures and then I wrote them down.

Psalm 84:11 - For the Lord God is a sun and shield:

the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.


Psalm 63:1 - O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee:

my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;


Psalm 62:1 - Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.


Psalm 64:1 - Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.


After reading them all once, I went back to Psalm 84:11 and read it again along with verse 12 also, because I have seen many times that God will lead me to one scripture to read, but then once I get there, He will lead me to others that open up so much more depth of revelation and understanding.


Psalm 84:11 - For the Lord God is a sun and shield:

the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.


Psalm 84:12 - O Lord of hosts,

blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.

So, after reading Psalm 84 verses 11 and 12, I went back to Psalm 63:1 and read it again; but this time I read verses 1-8.


Psalm 63:1 - 8

A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee,

my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;

2 to see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.

4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.

5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:

6 when I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.

7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.

8 My soul followeth hard after thee:


I also noticed that Psalm 63:1 had a reference to Psalm 42 verses 1 and 2 so I read them as well: your business the opportunity to be heard in a way in a different and unconventional way.


Psalm 42:1 - As the hart (deer) panteth after the water brooks,

so panteth my soul after thee, O God.


Verse 2 - My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?


Then, to Psalm 62:1 to reread it and also read verse 2:


Psalm 62:1 - Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.


Verse 2 - He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.


Then, I reread Psalm 64:1 again - Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer:

preserve my life from fear of the enemy.


As I was going back and forth to read and reread these scriptures. I was asking and seeking the Lord as to what He wanted me to gather from these scriptures. After all of that, I was led to write the scriptures out as a prayer from my heart. From the heart of a Seeker; one who desires to dwell in the Secret Place of the Most High God.


This is what I wrote as a Prayer: (Pray it with me)


The Lord God is a sun and shield, (He lights up, brightens and warms the way while also shielding, protecting and covering me. )


His word tell me that “There is No Good Thing that He will withhold from me”. My Father God won’t withhold any good thing from me - as I walk uprightly before Him and trust in Him. (Ps 84:11)


God, You are my God, I will seek You early. My soul thirsts for You. My flesh longs for You, like one in a dry and thirsty land that has no water. I desire to see Your Power and Your Glory. I desire to see Your manifest presence as I have seen You in times past (during times in the sanctuary - and during the secret and quiet times with You).

With my lips and my mouth, I will lift up my voice to praise you because your lovingkindness is better than life. Yes, I will bless you as long as I live and I will lift up my hands in your name and bless you and honor you. Because of You my soul shall continually be satisfied - therefore, my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.


I will think of You when I lay in bed before I rise and I will meditate on You and Your goodness at night before I go to sleep. And if I awake in the middle of the night I will think of Your goodness.


I will rejoice in You and thank you because You have been my help.


My soul shall follow hard after You, Thank you for Your right hand, (Your Power and Authority) holding me up. (from Ps 63:1-8).


Truly my soul waits on You, my God; for it is from You that my help and salvation, protection, deliverance, provision and victory comes. (from Ps 62:1).


So, Father God, hear my voice when I pray and preserve me, my life and my family. Protect me from and help me not to be concerned about the enemy. Hide me in Your Secret Place away from the enemy and the wicked and from any who would be against me or mean me no good, (from Ps 64:1) in Jesus name. Amen!


Kingdom Blessings,
