August 26

Blessed Jesus…I trust in You with an unwavering child-like trust.  My soul shall indeed forever be satisfied, as with the richest of foods!  I feast on the abundance of Your House, Lord; You give me drink from Your River of delights! [Ps 63:5; 36:8; 145:19]

Abba Father…Day after day You pour out Your steadfast Love upon me; night after night Your song is ever with me…a prayer to the God of my life.  You are my strength and my song; You are indeed my salvation!  On my bed I remember You, Father; my thoughts linger with You through the watches of the night.  My soul yearns for You in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for You.  I spread out my hands to You, Father; my soul thirsts for You…like a parched land for just only a few drops of water!  My soul waits before You, with a joyful expectation, an excited anticipation…more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning!  Because You are my help, I sing in the shadow of Your wings!  You cover me with Your feathers, and under Your wings I find refuge.  Your faithfulness, O Lord, is my Shield and my Protector!  My flesh and my heart may fail…often do…but You are the strength of my heart and my portion forever!  My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me.

Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing Love, for You are my Refuge and my Fortress…my God, in whom I trust!  For have You not promised?…I will never, never, leave you; I will never, ever, forsake you! Assuredly not!  O Lord Jesus, You are my Help; of whom shall I be afraid?  What can man do to me?  Who, or what, shall ever be able to separate me from Your Love, precious Lord?  Shall trouble or distress or persecution, famine, nakedness, danger, or sword?  No…in all these things I am more than a conqueror through You, Lord…the One Who loves me!  For I am persuaded, beyond the shadow of any doubt, that neither death, nor life; nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers; nor things present, nor things to come; nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all Creation, shall ever be able to separate me from the Love of God my Father, which flows unceasingly through You, Precious Lord…my Redeemer and my King!

Abba Father, You have lovingly encouraged me, as well as all Your children: The Spirit and the Bride, with an intense longing and yearning emanating from the deepest, inmost recesses of their Being for the Great Consummation of all things through the coming of Christ My Son, continually say, “Come!”  And let him who hears, in union and in fellowship with the Spirit and the Bride, also continually say, “Come!”  Father, this is surely the blessed life of deep and intimate personal relationship with You: my waiting upon God… watching and waiting, looking off unto You and listening for Your voice…with an unwavering child-like trust and an unreserved child-like dependence, with a joyful expectation and an excited anticipation, for You to reveal Yourself to me ever more deeply and intimately, and Your plans, Your purposes, Your will for me…SO I MAY THEN RESPOND, with an unquestioning child-like obedience, to every leading and prompting of Your Holy Spirit, cooperating with the Power of His enabling grace Who works in me both to will and to do.  Hallelujah!

Holy:
