Waiting Practice

Oh Father,


How I need to practice waiting upon You.


You already know how best to resolve the issues around me.  You and the Son have been leaning in together discussing this very thing (Romans 8:34). Why do I spend so much energy trying to figure it out on my own?


As long as my prayers are predominately concerned with “me” and “my”, I can know that they are missing out of Your depth. Your perspective is always broader and larger than the tiny little world I confine myself into (Psalm 40:5).  


I know that deep within me, Your Spirit has set up residence and built a temple of vital connection (1 Corinthians 3:16 ). My spirit is to be a house of prayer – with the desires of Your heart rising from within me in an unceasing flow (Isaiah 56:7; John 7:38).


Yet, as long as my prayers source from my head and not my spirit, I’ll tap into very little of the vast resource of the Power of Your Life.  When I feel low and dry, it is usually because I have limited my time in Your Presence. Forgive me, Father.


I come before You to wait. I will silence my flesh, and wait on Your Word (Psalm 130:5). Yes, my soul will wait (I will resist its sudden movement) and be quietened before You (Zechariah 2:13). 


You are my Rock and my Salvation, my Stronghold, so I don’t have to worry about the shaking. Thank You that I can pour out my soul before You (Psalm 62:5-8). 


Selah. Shhhhh…..
