FOR HIS LIGHT IN THE HEART
I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in His Word do I hope. My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning. [Ps 130:5-6]
My beloved child…your waiting upon God can have no higher purpose than simply having My Light shine on you, and in you, and through you, all the day. God is Light; God is a Sun. I have shined in your heart to give My light…the Light of the Glory of God, in the face of Christ Jesus My Son: For God, Who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the Glory of God in the face of Christ Jesus. [2 Cor 4:6] Your heart is meant to have that Light filling and gladdening it continually and unceasingly all the day.
In nature, ** **, what do all those beautiful trees and flowers do to keep the sun shining on them? They do nothing; they simply bask in the sunshine when it comes. The tiniest flower that lifts its little head upwards is met by the same exuberance of light and blessing as flood the widest landscape. It simply counts upon it, and receives it, and enjoys it. The only difference between nature and grace is this…that what the trees and flowers do unconsciously, as they drink in the blessing of the light, you are to do consciously and deliberately…a voluntary and a loving acceptance of My Glorious Light. Just as the sun shines unconditionally on all who will simply receive it, so faith, simple faith in God’s Word and Love, is to be the opening of your eyes, the opening of your heart, to receive and enjoy the unspeakable Glory of My Grace. It is the very highest privilege of your life as a child in My Royal Family…just to abide in the Light of God, and let it, and let Me, fill you with the Light and the brightness it brings.
The Light of God is an unceasing source of joy and gladness provided for you, My beloved child, if only your soul will just be but still and wait upon Me, if only your soul would just open itself and let Me shine My Glorious Light within you. You need only count on it and receive it, enjoy it and abide in it. All within you may be very dark; is that not the very best reason for waiting for the Light of God your Father? Can you not trust My Light to expel your darkness? If only you would just believe, it most assuredly will! If only you would just trust your heart to Me…I, your Father and your God, will help your unbelief! You need only just bow, even now, in stillness before God, and wait upon Me to shine My Glorious Light into you.
** **, God is Light…eternal, inaccessible, incomprehensible…and is here shining on your heart, because I have poured out My love into your heart by My Holy Spirit, Whom I have given to abide in you. [Rom 5:5] You have been so occupied with the rushlights of your own thoughts and your own efforts, you have never opened the shutters to let My Light in. Unbelief has kept it out. Child of God! God shines! God is Light! If you would only just take time, and just be still, and rest in the Light of God. Your eyes may be feeble and the windows may not be clean, but set your heart to wait upon Me. My Light does indeed shine; My Light will shine in you, and will flood your soul with Light! If only you would learn to walk unceasingly day and night in the Light and the Joy of your God and Father! More than watchmen waiteth for the morning, I say, more than they that watch for the morning, my soul waiteth for the Lord.
My precious child…don’t you know? Have you never understood and embraced the glorious truth of My Love in your heart? The Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of the Blood of My Divine Son Jesus has guaranteed and secured your eternal access into the Heavenly Sanctuary and the Holy of Holies…into the inaccessible Light of the Glory of My unclouded Presence and My promised rest…as your birth-right. I have prepared a promised rest for you, ** **. No matter what storms of life may be raging…a fierce tempest, whipping the waves into a tumultuous, churning, turmoil… beneath the surface, in the depths of God, all is peaceful and calm, all is tranquil and unruffled. In the shadow of the Almighty, you will find an unruffled child-like rest for your soul. I Myself have provided and secured this Eternal Promise for you. The way into My promised rest is so simple, a child can understand it. It is so simple, though, that only a child can embrace it and enter in. Anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.
** **, My Divine Son Jesus has dedicated the way, by Personal example, for you to follow in His footsteps into My promised rest. You must walk along the Path He walked; it is the Path of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial, death to sin and death to self. It is there in Gethsemane’s Garden that you find the Path that leads up to the Gate, which opens into the Heavenly Sanctuary and the Holy of Holies…into My unclouded Presence. It is the only Path that leads up to the Gate, which bears on its header the inscription THY WILL BE DONE. No one can pass through until they first
surrender their own free will there to the Gate-keeper. Beloved…you walk along that Path and enter through that Gate solely and only by faith. The way into My promised rest is through your unwavering child-like trust in Me, your unreserved child-like dependence upon Me, and your unquestioning child-like obedience to, and acceptance of, My will.
Beloved child…My promised rest is there for you to enter, but your ancestors who first heard this good news failed to enter because of their unbelief. So I set another time for entering My rest, and that time is Today. There is a special rest still waiting for My children. My deepest desire is for you to enter into My rest; do not fail as they did because of their lack of faith. Wherefore, My precious child, having now boldness to enter into the Holy of Holies by the Blood of Christ Jesus My Son, by the way which He dedicated for you, a new and living way to God through the veil, that is to say, through the veil of your flesh, do not hesitate then to draw nigh in fullness of faith; continually abide here with Me in the fullness of faith. [Heb 10:19, 22]
** **, have I not reassured you so lovingly, so tenderly, so affectionately? You are My child; I am your Father and your God. I have loved you with an everlasting Love. I knew you by name, in eternity past, before I created the world. I knew every thought you would ever think, I heard every word you would ever speak, I saw everything you would ever do. I knew what your every motive for doing things would be, your every attitude about doing them, your every feeling. I considered all these things about you and then, with full knowledge of all you would ever think or say or do, I consciously and deliberately chose to love you. My Eternal Reason for creating you is that I love you; the desire of My heart was to bring you into existence. My child…I made you for Myself, in My Own image and in My Own likeness!
My love for you, precious child, is unconditional…there are no conditions on My love for you. I love you because of Who I am, not because of who you are…or what you do, or what you refrain from doing. My love for you is not a response to anything in you; I initiate my love toward you. God is Love; I am Love. Love is My very nature, Love is My very essence, Love is the very core of My Being, and I love you because of Who I am. My love for you is completely outside of your sphere of influence. You have no influence over My love for you, no impact on My love for you. Just as time, as an illustration of what I am speaking about, ticks relentlessly by, completely undaunted by anything you can possibly do to hinder its unceasing march, so My love flows unceasingly toward you, undaunted by anything you could possibly think, or say, or do to hinder it. Though you may trample every clock in existence, you have had no effect on time itself, having trampled only the measure of time. Though you may trample every expression of My love toward you, you have had no effect on My love, having trampled only the measure of My infinite love for you.
** **, have you never understood and fully embraced My boundless love for you?
There is nothing you can do to cause Me to love you more; My love for you is already infinite. There is nothing you can do that would cause Me to love you less…because I already knew, in eternity past, everything you would ever think or say or do. Nothing you have ever done, or will ever do, is a surprise to me, something I didn’t already know. No matter for how long, how many, many years you have sinned against Me; no matter how often, how very often; no matter how deeply, how very deep; I already had full knowledge of these things in eternity past, considered them, and consciously and deliberately, with full knowledge, chose to love you.
Precious child, I love you with a fathomless love. Yes, the very reason I created you was so that I could pour all of My Blessedness, all of My Goodness into you! The very purpose for your having been created, and created in My very own image and likeness, was so that I could have a deep and intimate Personal relationship with you, could be one with you in heart, mind and spirit…even as We are One with One Another in Our Blessed Holy Trinity! I made you for Myself…an empty vessel so that I Myself could Personally work in you all that you were created to be! I created you as an empty vessel so that I could Personally satisfy your every need, every want, every desire! I created you as an empty vessel so that I could Personally invite you into this living, loving relationship with Me, that you may be filled to overflowing with the immeasurable fullness of God!
Child of God! My love for you is unfailing; it will never fail. You may fail Me; often do. But I will never fail you; I abide faithful! My love for you is unchanging. At this moment in time…after all your years of sins and failures, mistakes and imperfections…I love you the same as I did on the day you were born, when you were so pure, so innocent, and so helpless. My love for you is the same…yesterday, today, and forever. And I love you with an unending love…eternal and everlasting. My love for you will never perish or spoil or fade. If only you would know in the depths of your soul, if only you would just fully embrace, the greatness of My love I have lavished upon you…that you are named as My Own beloved child!
Abba Father…enable me by the Power of Your enabling grace to fully embrace in my heart Your love that transcends all human knowledge…that I may be filled up to the measure of all the fullness of God…to the richest measure of Your unclouded Presence, a soul filled to overflowing with God Himself! All Glory to You, Father, Who through Your Power at work within me is able to do immeasurably more than I could possibly ask or imagine! Father…enable me by the Power of Your enabling grace to embrace this 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 soul, wait thou only upon God! [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/05/10/waiting-upon-god/]
