Abba Father…one thing I ask of You, this is what I seek: that I may abide in the Holiest of All in Your unclouded Presence all the days of my life, to behold Your delightfulness and to inquire in Your Temple. For in the day of trouble You keep me safe in the shelter of the Most High; You hide me in the secret place of Your Tabernacle, and make me secure upon a high rock! [Ps 27:4-5]
Abba Father…my soul glorifies You; my spirit rejoices in my Father and my God! I am Your child, now and forever; may it be unto me according to all You have planned for me! 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.
My beloved child…what is the reason why you are waiting upon God? What is the purpose of your waiting upon God? Here is the consummation of all your watching and waiting and listening…the fulfillment of your waiting upon God and My revealing to you is: SO YOU MAY THEN RESPOND. All is for naught if you fail to respond, with an unquestioning child-like obedience, to every leading and prompting of My Holy Spirit, cooperating with the Power of His enabling grace Who works in you both to will and to do. It is not necessary for you to understand; you are to respond with an unquestioning child-like obedience. And, it is absolutely fundamental…the difference between success and failure…that you do not try to respond in the power of your flesh, which is in reliance upon the power of your human capabilities and capacities, by your own efforts or in your own strength, according to your own wisdom or knowledge or understanding. No, ** **, greatly beloved…you are to respond in the Power of My Holy Spirit, cooperating with His enabling grace as He Himself works in you both to will and to do… both the desire to obey your Father’s will, and the power to do My will.
Jesus saith to them, My food is, that I may do the will of Him Who sent Me, and may finish His work. [John 4:34] Jesus, answering Satan, said, It is written: Man does not live on bread alone, but on obedience to every word that comes forth from the mouth of God. [Matt 4:4] I do as the Father has commanded Me, so that the world may know that I love the Father and that I do only what the Father has instructed Me to do. I always act in full agreement with His orders. [John 14:31] Not in your own strength…for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you, energizing and creating in you both the power and desire, both to will and to do for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight. [Phil 2:13]
For You, Abba Father, take delight in Your children; You crown the humble with victory! Let the children of God rejoice in this honor with heart-felt worship; we will shout for joy on our beds! It is good to praise You, Father, and to make music to Your Name, O Most High! I proclaim Your loving-kindness in the morning and Your faithfulness throughout the night! [Ps 149:4-5; 92:1-2] Hallelujah!
Friends, brothers and sisters…
There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the
truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the
Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
Christ be in my Waking:
