Timing (Part 2)…

What would be so right at the wrong time can be so wrong…

Things that are pure in their time if rushed or pushed can be so wrong…

Everything in its season…

One thing always leads to another…

I am going through something at present where I am learning the blessing of waiting…

Waiting is beautiful…

What? you say…

Yes, waiting is beautiful…

I read something at one of our local malls yesterday (where people go to shop) which said something like, “rather than trying to get to the end of the storm, dance in the rain”…

I liked that and I smiled on the inside – it gave me courage…

Dance in the rain – only in the Holy Spirit though… 🙂

Only He can make us able to do this… 🙂

One thing leads to another…

In life God puts us – those who know Him – through experiences because He is preparing us for other experiences – one thing leads to another…

If we “camp” on the future God has promised us and try to “live it now” then we will be permanently unfulfilled…

If we “let go” of the future God has promised us and live the present now then we find Him adjusting our present to suit or prepare us for our future which He has promised us…

Let go to get what God has promised us in the future – counter intuitive…

But it works…

We start to see the focus we have (in the present) preparing us for the future…

We can never forget our future and God won’t let us – He will keep reminding us – but in that place where we’re focused on the present time goes by quickly and we enjoy our present and find all these blessings “popping up” in our present which we never expected to find…

Never…

God told me to submit to a “black hole” type experience where I let go of everything I wanted and did what I didn’t want to do – I see this experience spiralling downwards to a “black hole” where there is no way out and I’ll never “have a life” again – it really is a voyage of “no return” and not what my flesh wants – but as I’ve been travelling down this path – guided by an Unseen Hand (the Holy Spirit) enabling me – I’ve felt a strange peace and in this “nothingness” – this “abandoned” state – I’ve found such unexpected blessing…

When we expect nothing we get more than we expected… 🙂

That’s funny… 🙂

But it’s true…

Surrender to the “black hole”…

I have…

And am…

Surrender to the “black hole”…

I know that as I’m sucked down into it finally that life will really begin for me…

I say that with a smile…

Surrender to God’s “deaths” in your life, surrender to His “black holes” – don’t be afraid – surrender to His Timing – surrender to being “left on the shelf”… 🙂

I’m smiling again – He is so keen to enable us to do this and to show us how blessed it is to leave our lives in His Hands – He is so capable of bringing the resurrection to our lives – I’m really smiling now – He loves to do this as we lose control – lose control of our lives…

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
