What comes first when waiting upon The LORD that witnesses with your spirit and your heart is what He wants to do in you.
When He knows He has your attention, He will give to you precisely what you should be looking for. He has given you beauty for ashes.
Therefore rise up out of the ashes you have been trudging through in your mind, and start looking for the beauty that is ahead of you.
The Faith walk involves your mind. Your mind can be like a loud radio, blaring every day about the things you wish you were doing, or wishing you were not doing.
But the renewing of your mind by listening for The LORD’s Voice through the Word of His power will overtake the loud events you have been subjected to because of your own choices.
When you realize the pulling and tugging upon your heart by the Spirit of The LORD, your choices will be changed and you will become tuned in to His Voice.
The majesty of His Presence and the power of His Voice will be transforming you into the image of His dear Son.
The cry of your heart is truly reaching Him. The steadfast love of The LORD will never cease. Hereby will you be cleansed by the Word He is speaking to you.
You will be empowered by indwelling of the Spirit of God. He enables you to walk in the Faith of God through the obedience that He has been developing in your walk with Him.
“For they that wait upon The LORD will renew their strength, they shall rise up with wings like the eagle. The shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31.
“For the people who do know their God shall be strong and do mighty exploits.” Danial 11:32.
“Oh Lord, You’re beautiful;
Your Face is all I seek;
And when Your eyes are on this child;
You’re grace abounds to me.”
Great grace was upon the apostles in the Book of Acts. This same great grace is upon you when you are obeying His Voice.
For the Testimony of Jesus Christ is the Spirit of Prophecy. His great Grace enables you when you have the indwelling of The Holy Spirit; to walk in the obedience He has indwelled you with.
The indwelling is the empowering. For this is done not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says The LORD.
For He has given you the tongue of the learned. You are created in Christ Jesus for good works. He is, and always will be your sufficiency to dwell in the newness of Life He has created you for.
So, open your mouth wide and He will fill it.
The Word That Is Sent, has become the Word that dwells among us, and we will behold His Glory, the Glory of the only begotten Son of the Father, full of Grace and Truth.
We will glorify Him because He is our Glory, and The Lifter of Our Heads.
