The Hiding Place and a Double Portion
By Deborah Waldron Fry
“The Hiding Place, and a Double Portion for your shame.”
From a land of “grayness” to FULL COLOR.
Deliverance from a place of “despair” to the JOY of The LORD.” Trade your sorrow for the Joy of The LORD! ” 😃
There is a spirit of shame coming against The Body of Christ.
It will remind you of your past mistakes, that your thoughts and actions even now are not ‘good enough’.
This evil spirit comes to condemn you and whispers to you that you are a “fraud.”
When you step out in faith, it attempts to trip you up and asks, “Who do you think you are?”
The LORD says, “You just send that spirit to My Nail-scarred Feet. And I see the Father
singing over you, Child of God. They are songs of deliverance. For it is finished! Instead of shame you shall receive a double portion!”
“Beloved. Trade your sorrow and shame
for the Joy of The LORD. Say yes, My Child. Why do you carry shame? It is not yours.
Be confident of this very thing. You are Mine. He who has begun a good work in you is
faithful to complete it. Your life is now in My Hands.
It is not up to you to be ‘perfect’, for you have died to self and the Spirit of Christ now lives through you. The Lamb of
God took your place, My Child. I bore your sin, shame and sorrow.
You are a NEW creation. You carry NO shame now. Let not the evil one place this burden on you.
You are hidden in Christ. Instead of shame, My people will have a double portion, and instead of humiliation, you will rejoice in your share.
For it was for the JOY set before Me that
I endured the Cross. I AM now the Overseer of your soul. Your sufficiency is of Me. Sing, O My daughters and sons. Shout, and be glad and rejoice with all your heart.
For your LORD
has taken away your judgments, I have cast out your enemy. The King is in your midst. I AM your Hiding Place.
The accusations of the enemy shall fall to the ground harmless. You shall
see disaster no more. Shame is NOT your portion, Beloved.
You have DIED to sin and now LIVE to Righteousness. For by one offering I have perfected FOR ALL TIME those who are sanctified.
I surround you with songs of deliverance.
Fear not. The LORD your God is in your midst, The Mighty One, who saves; I rejoice over you with gladness, I quiet you with My love, I rejoice over you with
Shame : Disconcerted, disappointed, confounded. A painful feeling of humiliation or distress caused by the consciousness of wrong or foolish behavior. “Shame is a consequence
of sin.” 1 Peter 2:24 He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. (Bible Study Tools)

down and afflicted. But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed,” Isaiah 53:4-5.
