My beloved child…I put in you a new heart and a new spirit; I removed your stubborn heart of stone and replaced it with a tender, obedient heart. And I put in you My Holy Spirit, empowering you to obey My laws and live by My decrees. This is My Covenant with you: “My Spirit, and these words I have given you, will never depart from you!” [Father God…Ezek 36:26-28; Isa 59:21]
Abba Father…You have been showing me through the years, during those early hours of the morning well before dawn communing together with You in our trysting place,
how waiting upon God is the single most important habit of my spiritual life, and the only way I am enabled to live my everyday life in the Power of Your Holy Spirit. You have made absolutely clear to me the following foundational principles on just how I am to go about waiting upon You.
Foundational principles of waiting upon God:
A] My waiting upon God:
- 1] Quietness.
- 2] Heart.
- 3] Faith.
- 4] Surrender.
- 5] Worship.
- 6] Prayer.
B] God revealing
C] My cooperating and responding
Wait upon God in quietness. In my life of intimate relationship with God, I must become quiet and still before God, separated from all activities, so that God, as God, can overshadow me with Himself. In stillness of body, emptiness of soul, and silence of my natural human spirit…I need to prepare myself to enter into the Presence of God with no other object or purpose but simply to wait upon Him, to worship Him for Who He is, and to adore Him in His awesome Majesty and Glory. Abba Father, I come to our trysting place to meet with You every day, just to be alone together with You and to enjoy spending time together with You…just to love You and worship You, to commune with You and wait upon You. This is my life; I have no other desire.
- I need to bring stillness to my body, separated from all activities…separated from all family and friends, all responsibilities and projects, all the cares, concerns and routines engaging my life, all involvement with the things of the world, all of self and its energy of both mind and body.
I need to empty my soul of the entirety of the powers of the flesh that reside therein…all the thoughts of my mind, all the feelings of my emotions, all the inclinations of my will.
I need to silence my natural human spirit with all of its leadings and promptings… all of its affections, attractions, desires and purposes…with all of its controlling desires to determine and direct the selection of my everyday activities, as well as the overriding goals for the course of my life.
I need to embrace the Word of the Lord, “Be still, and know that I am God.” [Ps 46:10]
Tomorrow’s presentation will be waiting upon God with my heart.
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.”
