Contentment…

The Lord showed me this morning that I’d broken through into a place where I was able to wait for Him without anxiety or without needing to know all the details of what He is going to do and when…

It just happened – I was in the shower and all of a sudden I knew that the anxiety which I’d been carrying had left…

It just left…

Someone may have been praying for me – I don’t know – I just know that the Lord removed the burden and I felt free – my eczema (which I mentioned in the Enter into His Rest post) felt as if it was healed – it’s still there on my wrists – but on the inside it felt healed – the source – which was the anxiety which He showed me – has gone… ๐Ÿ™‚

Praise the Lord…

What He showed me last night and this morning was that I didn’t need to know any more…

There are major changes coming in my life – He’s been telling me this – and this has been causing some – in fact quite a lot of – anxiety, bubbling up (from my sub-conscious) in me…

I broke through to that place where although my foundation – so to speak – is going to be shaken and I will be leaving the familiar and stepping out into the unknown – and a lot of security blankets are going to be removed – although all this is going to take place in the not too distant future – I came to that place where I was content and didn’t need to know the details…

He told me back in Manila that covetousness was wanting something which the Lord had not given me – and I see that when the Lord speaks and tells us things which will happen – whether they’re in our own lives or in others – we can be covetous even about what He speaks that He will give us (but has not yetย given us in the natural)ย – this can cause anxiety where we try and work out how He will do this and try to help Him to make these things into reality – help Him to give us the things which He has promised – this is covetousness too…

Where He brought me to last night and then first thing this morning was to a practical experience of what it means to be content – content to wait until He fulfils His word to me – His promise to me and yet not “holding it to His Head” so to speak in terms of being disappointed if He didn’t bring that to reality (and yet knowing – as I did – that He would bring those things into reality – an amazing place)…

Trust…

And submission…

Reverence…

And respect…

He is my life…

He is Faithful…

He is in control…

He doesn’t need my help… ๐Ÿ™‚

He’s quite capable of fulfilling His own will… ๐Ÿ™‚

He doesn’t need my help… ๐Ÿ™‚

But as He catches me up I rise on wings like eagles and soar with Him in His will and in His desire – His desire to save the world…

How He is going to do this is His business…

If I am “caught up” into the Engine Room of heaven so to speak and hear some of the things which He is going to do – Praise God – but just because I’ve heard them doesn’t mean that I can do anything to make them happen…

I have to wait on Him…

And I can’t strive for more – more revelation – everything must be done in His rest – yes, if He puts it on my heart to “push in” for further revelation then Praise God, He will enable me to do that…

If not I am to be content with what I know and faithful to believe this come what may – this is the test of my faith and the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings – we overcome by our faith…

This is the place He has called us to and in this place we can hear His Voice – for we are in a place of peace and silent waiting before Him…

Watching daily at His doors as a friend shared with me years ago – I was touched by this friends submission to the Lord – she was living something at that time which I had not yet experienced – Praise You Jesus… ๐Ÿ™‚

When we see things which are to come we are to wait for them patiently – the Lord’s definition of soon is not the same as ours – He sees things from an eternal perspective – when we enter a “now” time with God we will be swept off our feet – once He starts moving there is no time anymore to plan – He has “broken out” and we will be “caught up” in what He is doing – savour the quiet, peaceful (almost boring) times with God before He moves – wait (tarry) with Him in those times – for He will surely come – the calm always precedes the storm…

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 Principal Structural Engineer, 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
