He’s in the Waiting

He’s in the Waiting

Last week, I took a walk on the beach and saw this lonely pelican on one side of a rock which looked like a favorite perch for many birds. I thought to myself with a smile, “It can be lonely watching and waiting on the Lord.” A moment later the Lord reminded me through this comical scene that “God is in the waiting.”

It seems many of us are finding ourselves in this place lately where we have been crying out for God to move in different  situations and we are frustrated and weary because we are not seeing the answers yet.

But don’t give up because God is doing a miraculous, needed work in our hearts as we wait!

I had a dream the other night and I don’t dream often so I knew it was significant. I dreamt that I gave birth to a premature baby. I woke up from the dream and knew that this had nothing to do with the physical. I also knew this dream wasn’t just for me but for all of our body at Real Life Fellowship in SLO.

This was something in the spiritual realm that God was working in us that we had given birth to before it was ready. I began to pray saying to the Lord, “Help us not to give birth prematurely to whatever You have destined for us to do.”

I was led into a time of prayer asking that God would hide us away in the cleft of the rock to finish that good work He is doing in our spirits… praying that the Lord would do what He needed to do in us until we are ready to launch into the work that He has for us in San Luis Obispo County.

A few days later, Tom and I watched an interview of Mario Murillo where he spoke directly to those that are experiencing discouragement in their ministry. He spoke about Anna from the Bible where it is said  that God closed her womb for a time. That created in her an even greater desperation for a child! A child of promise.  Mario described the analogy of a water spout over the ocean. God is looking for a people with a holy desperation for His presence that matches His passion for his people. Mario said this is what “deep cries unto deep” means. God is working to create in us a desperation for an outpouring of His Spirit that matches His own! An outpouring where Holy Spirit would fall on many, many people and those lives would be changed forever. That revival would lead to reformation of our country and even the world. 

This is what God is doing in our midst right now.

So hide us away right now, dear Father. Teach us what you want us to learn. Show us how to stand unwavering in the promises You have given us. Show us how to stand together as a united body, all desiring the same thing…a revival that would bring many to know Jesus as their Savior and that would bring the powerful anointing of the Holy Spirit that many would have the power to follow Jesus with great courage and boldness in this time! Come Holy Spirit! We welcome You!
