"Christ in you, the hope of glory." Colossians 1:27
Wait upon Him in the 'hard-press' of every situation... in every need and sorrow.... upon every mountaintop or darkened valley, wait with eyes to see Him.
Father God is doing a powerful work through His mysterious love, skillfully moving into deeper places in us. So passionate for what He has made us to be in His likeness, He is miraculously transforming us to display more and more of Himself, our original design.
This, my beautiful friend, is taking place through our earthly conditions that seem insurmountable, unusable and painfully crippling. Yet God is not shaken. He is not rattled, surprised, or stammering for what to do with what perplexes us. As the Light of the world, He simply stays right with us ~ whispering, "Darkness is as light to Me." (Ps. 139) and continues on with His intentions.
So let our focus be to wait for Him... More than watchmen wait for the morning... And as we wait, we will mount up on wings like eagles above our earthly circumstance and the enemy’s hand of gravity that seeks to pull us down, weary, and suffocate us. We attain these wings in our secret place, abiding in the Vine, being still and knowing Him there, dwelling in the shelter of the Most High (Psalm 91). It is right here His strength will rise in us, causing us to soar upon the heights, causing His glory to be made known through you and me who simply stood as a vessel of His presence right in the midst of the flame.
Hidden like a secret garden, there is a gift to us here in the midst. His powerful presence is seeking to be anchored down in us with such a resolute posture that no matter what the diagnosis, no matter the evidence proved in the natural, no matter the level of pain, or the duration of time God would allow it to last… we will not be moved from Him, our power source.
This is victory… victory that comes through surrender within the soul, where the battle truly lies. And when victory is laid hold of on the battlefield of the soul, right in the midst of what is still unresolved, we have given God His resting place in us.
“But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed,
but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of
Jesus may also be revealed in our body.”
2 Corinthians 4:7-10
