WAITING ON GOD

My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation. And He said to them all, if any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. [Ps 62:5-6; Luke 9:23]

My beloved child, wait thou only upon God; if there are other secret confidences you are relying on, they will prevent the blessing that was expected. There is but one God, but one source of life and happiness for the heart; I alone am your Rock. My child, wait thou only upon Me. You desire to be good…there is none good but God, and there is no possible goodness but what is received directly from Me. You have sought to be holy… there is none holy but the Lord, and there is no holiness but what I by My Spirit of Holiness every moment breathe in you.

**        **, wait thou only upon God Myself. You are to let the living God alone, none other and nothing but Me, be your hope…not any people nor any things. Eyes and hands and feet, mind and thought, may have to be intently engaged in the duties of this life; even so, you need only just let your soul, your very self, your inmost being, with all its power, continually wait upon God.

Child of God! Wait thou only upon God! You are an immortal spirit, created not for this world, but for eternity and for God. O, my child! Realize your destiny! Know your privilege, and wait thou only upon God!  You must beware of a consuming interest in religious thoughts and exercises and studies deceiving you, and taking the place of waiting upon God Myself…to spend time alone sitting at My feet, just to commune together!  You must beware of your two great enemies: the World and Self. Beware of the terrible fascination of the World and the flesh…lest any Earthly satisfaction or enjoyment keep you back from saying, “I will go to God, my exceeding joy.” My child…you must deny yourself; My children need to deny themselves in everything. You must let God be ALL your salvation and ALL your desire. You need to say continually, with an undivided heart, “From Him cometh my expectation; He only is my rock; I shall not be moved.”

**        **, you must never forget these two foundational truths: your absolute helplessness; the absolute sufficiency of your God.  You are to enter deeply into the entire sinfulness of all that is of your self, and think not of letting self have aught to say one single moment…in anything. You are to enter deeply into your utter and unceasing impotence ever to change what is evil in you, or to bring forth anything that is spiritually good. You need only just enter deeply into your relationship of utter child-like dependence upon God, to receive from Me every moment what I long to give. You are to enter deeper still into My covenant of redemption, with My promise to restore more gloriously than ever what you have lost, and by My Son and Spirit to give within you unceasingly My actual Divine Presence and Power.  Have you never embraced the Divine Power of My Holy Spirit given to abide in you, working in you everything you need for life and godliness through the knowledge of Christ My Son, Who called you by His Own glory and goodness? Through these He has given you His Own very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the Divine nature now dwelling within you, and thereby escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.  No words can tell, no heart conceive, the riches of the glory of this mystery of the Father and of Christ My Son. Your God, in the infinite tenderness and Omnipotence of My Love, waits to be your Life and your Joy.

Blessed Holy Spirit…You are the Divine Nature dwelling in me, Whose Power in me continually guarantees and secures my capability to live my everyday life: faithful to my solemn marriage vows as the bride of Christ; faithfully within the Holy of Holies and the unclouded Presence of my Father in our Sacred Covenant relationship. Abba Father, 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.  Hallelujah!

My soul, wait thou only upon God! [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/05/10/waiting-upon-god/]
