Can we wait on Him?

Posted by appolus on September 3, 2022

Do we allow space and time in our religious services for God to move among men? Do we have the faith to stand in silence and wait on God expectantly? Silence, for some reason, scares us. If we pray and teach and believe that God is going to come to us, then why not stand and wait for Him? Perhaps there is less faith involved in noise? Perhaps we have no real expectation of God to show up in our services? Perhaps we do not really want Him there? Perhaps all we want is a word about Him and not a word from Him? A word about Him is something we can handle, a Word from Him directly is and always has been life changing and radical. Do we really want our lives radically changed? Or are we content with what we have, content to stand at the door of our tents and watch Moses or Joshua go outside the camp and enter the tabernacle?
To You silence is praise, O God, in Zion; and to You is a vow paid. To You who hears prayer, all flesh comes. Things of iniquity are mightier than I; as for our transgressions, You shall purge them away. Blessed is the one whom You choose, and cause to come near You. He shall dwell in Your courts; we shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, of Your holy temple (Psa 65:1)

    Amen. That’s what I believe the prayer meetings were meant to be. Prayers offered up to a holy Father in petition for him to move. “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven…lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil…” But as I have heard so many faithful men of God throughout the years tell it with a broken heart, that those were the least attended meetings. Not by a little, but by alot. Shows you where people’s priorities are and where they are not.
    It’s like David Wilkerson preached in his sermon, and I’ve listened to it multiple times: A Call To Anguish. Very powerful, very sobering message. All of these things that are wrong, and improper, and out of order, we should be bothered or deeply grieved by. He says, “A true prayer life begins at the place of anguish. You see, if you set your heart to pray, then God is going to come and start sharing his heart with you…” It’s true. I can testify to that. We can have as much of God or as little of God as we want of him.
    Psalm 16 yesterday really brought much comfort to my soul. I pray it bring comfort to other souls who might read it as well:
    Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge. I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.” As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight….The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure. For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption. You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
    Psalm 16:1‭-‬3‭, ‬5‭-‬11 ESV
    God bless and preserve all his holy ones 🙏 ✝️

      It is a sad commentary on the established church that so little, if any prayer, takes place in their gatherings. If one were able to take the vitals of any gathering, the way the doctor takes our blood pressure and pulse, then prayer in an individuals life or a gathering would be the pulse. The heartbeat is at the center of our being and prayer is at the center of who we are in Christ……I love Psalm 16. It reminds the saints that we are His excellent ones as opposed to what we hear so much of today “I’m just a sinner saved by grace.” ……..bro Frank

    The word of God within our bibles is what He has given to feed our inner man. What bread is to meet the needs of our physical body, the word of God is to our inner man. When we as saved members have not been grounded in the words/rightly divided doctrine for the body of Christ, we are emaciated and begin looking for something to feed our flesh.
    When we are honestly feeding upon the written word of God – the Spirit Himself nourishing us thereby – we are comforted with All Comfort and deeply and utterly satisfied. It is this man or woman who will be able to speak a word to edify. This word will not deviate from the word of God living in its proper context.
    The wiles of the devil operate within the religious circles of the malnourished who have not been taught by grounded men how to properly divide the word of truth that they may be truly fed by the Spirit of God from the scripture.
