Waiting for God on a park bench…

The Lord gave me a picture a few weeks back which has really crystallized where I am at presently…

I was sitting alone on a park bench…

I was waiting…

Waiting for Him to act…

Life was going on around me, people passing me in the park and I had a good attitude towards them but remained silent as they passed by with a pleasant expression on my face and a contented feeling in my heart…

I was powerless to do anything, I was just a watcher and He showed me that on the inside this would never change…

He was offering me a permanent place on that park bench where all I did for the rest of my life on the inside was to worship Him and wait upon Him…

He showed me that as I did this I was proclaiming His Victory and experiencing His rest…

All good things would flow to me from this position and that in time He would bring someone to sit with me on that park bench who would share my call to worship and wait on Him and to trust Him to do everything which He has said He will do in His world…

I realized the powerlessness of this position, the vulnerability of this position, the public nature of this position and yet the peace and freedom of this position…

When we worship we proclaim His Victory and in so choosing we are proclaiming that we are not worried about ourselves or our futures but are content with Him…

He has absolute control and we are trusting Him to provide…

Prior to the park bench vision when I was on one of my long hill runs recently He showed me that the prayer which He taught us to pray was – every time we prayed it – bringing the entire Family of God on earth before Him – there was nothing individualistic about it – it was corporate…

Waiting, worshipping, interceding…

And this is what Jesus does in heaven…

On the inside as we live from this place we experience His peace and His unity with His Body all the way around the world…

We are one with Him and submitting to His agenda for His Body at this point in time on earth…

So this is a time of realignment for me, getting used to my park bench, realizing that my ‘worry prayers’ are not necessary and that He really does have everything under control…

Love You Lord… 😊

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
