Waiting on God…

The place of selflessness is truly a beautiful place…

In this place you can truly wait on God…

I’ve just seen this…

I’ve been waiting on God – or trying to – for around a week and a half now – realizing later on in that period that He was calling me into His Presence…

I woke up very early this morning and have been sitting here in silence waiting on Him – waiting on Him to speak to me – and I believe He just has…

This is so beautiful…

When we are waiting on Him – answers to prayer, breakthroughs, etc – we often feel “How long Lord?” or I know I do and He showed me that when there is no selfishness in me I won’t be asking, “How long Lord?” which has to do with how long must I wait but instead I’ll just be happy to pray the prayers which I pray whether there is anything in it for me or not – including the joy of hearing about the breakthrough or the deliverance or whatever – for what is selfless is all about others…

Just the joy of praying the prayer is enough – just the joy we feel when we pray the prayer is enough – even if we never hear of the breakthrough – it is enough…

There is nothing selfish in God…

We are not “holding on” for the breakthrough (to actually occur and be told that it has actually occurred in the natural) – we are rejoicing in the breakthrough in the spirit (the spiritual realm) – in advance – when the Lord releases the faith to us to rejoice – in advance…

Hallelujah!!!

This is our joy – maybe we won’t know in the natural when breakthroughs have occurred in “real time” until we get to heaven…

Hallelujah!!!

This is OK – our spirits tell us that they have occurred as we receive the joy in prayer and this is enough…

Our desire is to see others set free…

The only sure way to know that is in the spiritual – the spirit – realm…

Hallelujah!!!

We live by faith and not by sight…

Hallelujah!!!

This is a breakthrough for me…

Thank You Jesus (I am very happy)…

This has been worth waiting for…

That is our job in prayer – to pray until we rejoice – in advance – in the victory which we have seen in the spirit (the spiritual realm) and then “let that thing go” – Hallelujah!!! – believing that it is already accomplished – not holding on for tangible proof – Hallelujah!!!

Ohhh… I am soooo excited…

Yes…

(Clapping)

That’s the breakthrough I’ve been looking for…

We somehow (or I have anyway) feel that we need to see breakthrough in the natural before we can be released from our burden but we don’t – we almost (or I have anyway) feel (felt) guilty if we haven’t yet seen it in the natural (and we feel others expectations that if it hasn’t yet happened in the natural it hasn’t yet been “successful intercession” – or whatever – at least I have felt this way)…

Further to this we have some prayers for others which involve our own happiness – like the prayers where we are praying for those who we will work with personally for the Lord – “Sort them out Lord!” we basically say, “Sort them out!” – but we don’t realise the selfishness behind that prayer…

When the Lord told me a few days ago that the reason one certain breakthrough – in the natural (or physical) – was taking some time with someone I’m praying for was that He was showing them His Perfect Patience it really rocked my world…

Wow, it’s like this particular person will look back and think, “Wow, God let me ‘go there’ and do that and take all that time and He Patiently waited for me (through Andrew) until I’d ‘gotten that out of my system’ – Wow”…

That was what He showed me and that broke it for me in terms of my waiting for that particular person to come through to their breakthrough (in the natural)…

This is seeing things from God’s Perspective and not our own even when those things affect our every day lives…

I’m reminded as I type that someone has modelled this for me – the leader of our prophetic intercessors group here in Christchurch – he has modelled this for me…

Back in the early 2000’s after Nancy and I were married we were a part of this group – I got impatient over how long things seemed to be taking and wanted to “get on” with “my ministry” (Oh dear me – how immature was I…) and we parted company…

I still remember at one intercessors conference after this he said quietly to me that he didn’t believe it was God’s will that I had left…

I seriously resisted that (Oh dear me – God has been patient with me)…

But he was right – but I needed to “get that out of my system” – before the Lord could “take me all the way around the world and back” to see that with him – this leader – was where I was meant to be – for my training in the Lord – I need the training which I have been receiving from this leader…

Do we see this?

He – the leader – went through a lot of pain during my absence – I wasn’t able to support him – and he needed this – but since I’ve been back we’ve had a number of breakthroughs because of the unity – and he sees this and so do I – there’s been a restoration of sorts in our relationship because we’re in right alignment – God has His Timing in everything…

So we wait and we wait for the good of the other person always…

I get it now…

🙂

Apologies for being so thick Lord…

Whatever pain we have to go through to “get there” is worth it (always worth it and forgotten when the joy comes)… 🙂

Love You,

Andrew

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Technical Director - Design, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
