** **, greatly beloved, don’t you yet understand? Your spiritual life cannot grow and mature by trying…only by crying out to Me, and trusting that I will hear your cry and satisfy your needs. Like a newborn baby crying in its thirst…crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up into full spiritual maturity, now that you have tasted the goodness and kindness of the Lord. [1 Peter 2:2-3; Ps 34:8]
My beloved child…living a life of faith depends upon your wholeheartedly embracing this principle: continually and unceasingly, day and night, your heart needs to breathe in that breath of life that comes from My Holy Spirit, and sustains your spiritual life…just the same as your lungs need, continually and unceasingly, to breathe in that breath of life that comes from the outside air, and sustains your physical life. This is the blessed life of deep and intimate personal relationship with God: Waiting upon God, with a child-like trust and a child-like dependence, for God to reveal to you My plans, My purposes, My will, and a deeper revelation of Who I am, SO YOU MAY THEN 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.
Waiting upon God is the single most important habit of your spiritual life. Waiting upon God is the essence of a deep and intimate personal relationship with God in Spirit and in Truth. Waiting upon God with a child-like trust and a child-like dependence, for Me to reveal to you My plans, My purposes, My will, so you may then cooperate and respond with an unquestioning child-like obedience to every leading and prompting of My Holy Spirit…this is the blessed life of Sacred Covenant relationship with your God and Father. My Holy Spirit…the gift your Father promised, and has given…is the Power for your life in God.
Child of God! Wait upon God for My Spirit to place you where you are to be, lead you where you are to go, show you what you are to do to participate with Him in His work, give you the thoughts you are to think and present, the words you are to speak or write. You are not to move forward on any course of action apart from the leading of My Holy Spirit. When you hear His voice behind you saying, “This is the way, walk ye in it,” you are to respond by immediately doing what He has shown you to do, and being whatever He shows you to be…with an unquestioning child-like obedience. It is your place to respond to every leading and prompting of My Holy Spirit, without regard for the cost or the difficulty of what you are given to do. In order to do this, beloved child, you need to be continually watching and waiting, looking off unto and listening for the leading of My Spirit. It is of the utmost importance that you do not try to respond in the power of your flesh…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. You must respond in the Power of My Spirit, cooperating with the Power of His enabling grace as He works in you both to will and to do. The Spirit of God will always give you His grace and strength to do whatever He leads you to do. This is what the Lord Almighty says: “I am the Lord All-Powerful. So don’t depend on your own power or strength, but on My Spirit. Who are you, O mighty mountain of human obstacles? You shall become a level plain…a mere molehill! Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea!” [Zech 4:6-7; Matt 21:21]
It is My Holy Spirit, ** **, Who works in you both the desire to obey your Father’s will, and the power to do My will. You cannot produce fruit by your own efforts or in your own strength. My Holy Spirit, working in you, produces the fruit; You are merely the branch that bears the fruit. He does not impart His Power to you for you to use to produce fruit or exercise His gifts or manifest His Power. He Himself is the Power dwelling within you, Personally doing these works in you. You are only an instrument of His Righteousness, a vessel used for His honor. Therefore, all the glory belongs to Him! But the fruit of the Holy Spirit…the work which His Presence within accomplishes…is love, joy, peace, patient endurance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law that can bring a charge against you. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the godless human nature of the flesh with its passions and appetites and desires. If we live by the Holy Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. If by the Holy Spirit you have your life in God, let us go forward walking in line, your conduct controlled by the Spirit. There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different and distinctive varieties of working, but it is the same God Who does the work in and through all of us who are His children. [Gal 5:22-25; 1 Cor 12:4-6]
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.”
