Anticipate with Joy!
I need You Lord, I need You Lord, I cannot do this life without my life in You, I need You lord, I come adore, For in your presence You make all things new.
Come and ruin every lie that holds me captive. Come and open up the possibilities, that I can't see....and to know, that my significance is found in You, in Your ever giving life, in the fullness of Your truth. All the rest I find is found in you, so I will approach You throne in rest ...."For thus the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel, has said, "In repentance and rest you will be saved, In quietness and trust is your strength. But you were not willing,"
"For this reason the Lord is ready to show you mercy;
he sits on his throne, ready to have compassion on you.
Indeed, the Lord is a just God;
all who wait for him in faith will be blessed." Is 30 :18
The Lord will not abandon His people. Just because He has not done it yet, does not mean He will not fulfill His promises to You. "Although the Lord has given you bread of privation and water of oppression, He, your Teacher will no longer hide Himself, but your eyes will behold your Teacher." Is 30:20 NASB
So Lord open up our eyes to see You. Where we have drunk the wine of oppression, let us taste Your goodness. Where we have eaten the bread of distress, let us eat the bread of Your presence.
Lord I desire to follow Your voice, for all others lead to restlessness and though the broad way seems clearly marked, it does not lead to the great blessing You have for us.
Is 30:21 "And at your back, when you are turning to the right hand or to the left, a voice will be sounding in your ears, saying, This is the way in which you are to go".(BBE)
So I will choose the road less traveled, less understood, that leads to life. "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Matt.7:13"
But don't forget to ask! Your Father in in Heaven will give good gifts to those who ask Him.(Matt 7:11 )He's waiting to give you good things. Ask expectantly. Do not let disappointment in the journey rob you of the joy of receiving simply because you fail to ask, to request, to expect God to be who He is..... "Good" Anticipate with Joy. Because laughter is coming. Sorrow will not endure. Yours is not the road that leads to destruction but to life. Don't let the enemy tell you any different. Keep on the path of life, even when it seems that the world is having way more fun. The illusion is merely an eternal trap. My ways are higher, My ways are surer, and I alone hold the keys to JOY and LIFE and LIGHT. True light, that does not fade into a pit. I hold a plan that is far beyond what you can imagine or dream... and it is good. The enemy is a liar. My ways are not all suffering. I am pleasant. Rather his ways are crooked and perverse and lead to heartache.
Child look full in MY face. See My eyes of love.. I hold you!! I hold your dreams. I hold Your face in my hands and ask, and entreat you... trust ME fully in this... test ME in this and you will see. Your Joy will be renewed and together we will soar to heights you can only begin to imagine. You've not yet tasted the fullness of my love. You are in the training . You are in the waiting. Do not stop before you attain the prize. Press on. For my love will see you through the battle field, and there is victory on the other side. Defeat is not an option. We will go there together, you and I into victory.... and in the meantime know... all is well. You and I are good. I love you deeply.... too deeply to let you run very far... because I know your heart... though it wrestles, is bound in MY fiery seal. I have sealed you. When you asked me to set my seal of love upon you I did.( SOS 8:6) So I will hold you close. and when you stop wrestling, and settle in, you will hear MY heart more clearly. Please rest. You are tired. Please don't resist the call of my love, the call of My voice, the pulling of my heart to Yours. I love you deeply. Let the pain go and come. Let the years of toil go. Come and sleep, in my arms. Come and sleep. The joy of a new day is coming round the bend.
Waiting for Eagle wings
So here I am waiting
waiting for eagles wings
ready to soar
on the wind that you bring
you've brought the promise
so here I am postured
to wait on the Lord
and fly with Eagle wings
I know some day from another height I'll see all the things you were doing
But it seems everything's on hold here as I wait for You
And in my anticipation, others here are waiting too
to see Your promise fulfilled in me.
I hear you say "Hold on Child"
there's more than you imagined, Go deep child in My Love
Hold on child, there's something I am building.
The change, it will come.
and you will soar on eagles wings.
But don't just wait, wait on the Lord.
Dig deeper still, there's more, there's more
I'm creating all the things you"ll need to sustain the flight.
You won't crash and burn, I'm creating life. "
