My beloved child… life in the power of the flesh is characterized by trying rather than by trusting. It is a life requiring your continual striving and struggling; all of your efforts, redoubled efforts, and strength; all of your commitments and resolutions; all of your pledges and promises. Even then…the absolute weakness of your sin-enslaved human nature guarantees you will utterly fail! [Father God…Rom 7:14-24]
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
C) My cooperating and responding
** **, greatly beloved, 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 this 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 your human capabilities and capacities, by your own efforts or in your own strength, according to your own wisdom or knowledge or understanding. 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 God 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. 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 act in full agreement with His orders. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My Name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. [John 4:34; 14:26, 31]
Beloved child, Not in your own strength…for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you, energizing and creating in you the power and desire, both to will and to do for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight. [Phil 2:13]
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.”
