FOR ALL SAINTS
Most assuredly, none of those who wait upon You will be ashamed. [Ps 25:3]
My beloved child…My Eternal Purpose in creating you is simply this: I made You for Myself, to be joined together with the Triune God in a Sacred Covenant relationship…a living union of oneness. Your place in our relationship is so simple a child can understand it…but it is so simple that only a child can embrace it. This is to be your life, ** (your name) **…what you live for: waiting upon God. Watch for and wait upon God, look off unto Me and listen for My voice, with an unwavering child-like trust and an unreserved child-like dependence, with a joyful expectation and an excited anticipation… for Me to reveal Myself to you ever more deeply and intimately, and My plans, My purposes, My will for you…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.
Abba Father…You have made this so clear to me as a child in Your Royal Family: Your Eternal Purpose for calling me into a Sacred Covenant relationship with Yourself is… first of all…to spend time alone together with You, just to commune with You…just to behold You face to Face, and to commune with You face to Face, as a man speaks with his friend. In our time together, You reveal Yourself to me ever more deeply, ever more intimately…and You reveal to me something of the rich eternal treasures of the spiritual realm that can only be known as Your Holy Spirit illuminates my mind to these truths. During our time together, Your Holy Spirit leads me and guides me…takes me wherever He pleases. Most of the time, Father, I come to our trysting place with no agenda for our communing together; sometimes I have specific situations I need to bring before You and inquire about. Even so, my one only and overriding agenda is to continually and personally experience You, the One True Living God, ever more deeply, ever more intimately as we spend time together in our Sacred Covenant relationship… and to continually and personally experience Your Divine Son Jesus, Whom You have sent…the Christ; the Anointed One; the Messiah. Joined together with the Triune God in a Sacred Covenant relationship, and living my everyday life in that relationship, is Eternal Life…a life of relationship that will go on for all eternity! And throughout all eternity, I will never plumb the depths of God! Incredible!; Astounding! You created me for Yourself; You created me that we would spend time together, just to commune. Your purpose for our communing together is, first of all, relationship…not to give me work assignments for the day. That is secondary…when You do reveal Your plans, purposes, and will for me.
My beloved child…My Divine Son Jesus interceded before Me on your behalf in His High Priestly Prayer when He knew His hour had come, “that they all may be one, just as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us.” Relationship between God and Man, whom I created in My Own image and Glory, was purposed to be characterized by your living union of oneness with the Triune God…a oneness that mirrored Our Own relationship with One Another. Christ My Son interceded on your behalf for the fulfillment of My original intended purpose in Creation for the souls of Man: “My prayer is not for My disciples alone. I pray also for all those who will believe in Me through their message, that all of them may be one in Us in a Sacred Covenant relationship and with one another, Father, just as You are in Me and I am in You in Our Triune Godhead. May they also be one in Us in a Sacred Covenant relationship, so that the world may believe that You have sent Me. I have given them the glory You gave Me, that they may be one in Us in a Sacred Covenant relationship even as We are One in Our Triune Godhead: I Myself joined together with them in a Sacred Covenant relationship and You in Me in Our Triune Godhead. May they be brought to complete unity in Us and with one another, to let the world know that You sent Me and have loved them even as You have loved Me. I have made You known to them, Father, and will continue to make You known, in order that the love You have for Me may be in them, and that I Myself may be joined together with them in a Sacred Covenant relationship.” [John 17:20-23, 26 NIV/MJJZ]
Father…Your Divine Son Jesus so warmly encouraged me: I do not call you servants any longer, for a servant does not know what his master is doing. But I have called you My friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from My Father. You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and appointed you, that you might go and bear fruit and keep on bearing, and that your fruit may be lasting…so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name as My representative, He may give it to you. This is what I command…that you love one another. If anyone says, “I love God,” yet hates his brother or sister in the Family of God, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brothers and sisters, whom he has seen, cannot love God, Whom he has not seen. And I have given you this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brothers and sisters in our Family. [John 15:17; 1 John 4:20-21]
** **, in My Words written in Psalm 23…Most assuredly, none of those who wait upon Me will be ashamed…I have given you My sure promise: Those who wait upon Me shall never be ashamed! How many are there of your brothers and sisters, sick and weary and solitary, to whom it seems their prayers are not answered, whose hopes in their ministry work have been disappointed, whose longing for power and blessing remains unsatisfied. So many of My children cannot seem to find the path to My promised rest…a life of unruffled child-like rest and perfect peace, of abiding light and fellowship, of strength and victory. With all these, it is nothing but that you have not yet learned the secret of waiting upon God with patient endurance, and not growing weary in your waiting. You have not yet fully embraced in your heart the living assurance that waiting upon God can NEVER be in vain. ONLY BELIEVE with a living assurance: waiting upon God can never be in vain!
For that very reason, My child, your intercession for all your brothers and sisters who are struggling in their waiting upon God must become part of your own waiting upon Me, because love to your brethren and love to God are inseparably linked. All true seeking of God and My love for yourself will be inseparably linked with your thoughts and love for your brethren, expressed in the very least through your prayers for them.
Unselfishness and love for your brothers and sisters is the path to your highest blessing and fullest communion with God, just as in the Triune Godhead the Father’s Love to both His Son and to you are one, and Christ the Son’s Love to both His Father and to you are one: “My prayer is not for My disciples alone. I pray also for all those who will believe in Me through their message, that all of them may be one in Us, Father, in a Sacred Covenant relationship and with one another, just as You are in Me and I am in You in Our Triune Godhead. May they also be one in Us in a Sacred Covenant relationship, so that the world may believe that You have sent Me. A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another. [John 17:20-21; 13:34-35]
** **, don’t you yet understand? From many and many of your brothers and sisters in our Family comes their cry for help…those who are so weary, or feeble, or so entangled in the efforts of their work. You are to be a source of encouragement to them: “Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord. Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you that hope in the Lord! Let none that wait on Thee be ashamed!” [Psalm 27:14; 31:24; 25:3]
My soul, wait thou only upon God! [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/05/10/waiting-upon-god/]
