Waiting On The Lord-Part 9
Posted Byon Friday, July 29, 2016
Now I would not suggest that any of you say, “All right now, I’m going to go someplace for a whole week, and I ask the Lord to visit me. I’ll ask Him to come from the ceiling and stand there.” You’re wasting your time. You might as well go to a restaurant and have your crumpets.
You cannot tell Him how He is to visit you, or what He is to do for you, except in a general way, “Lord, I need a new thing. I’m hungry for you. Lord I want to enter into this School of the Spirit, the School of Revelation, the School of the Knowledge of the Lord.” How He does that is up to the Teacher. You present yourself.
Remember what I said the other night, “Make yourself available.” Have you?
Make yourself available, if you want to, before you go to bed, if you’re interested, “Father, I’m making myself available in case You want to do something for me.”
I have a scripture here if I can find it. I was going to use it this morning and have my tag in there. Oh yes, Psalms 17:3, “Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night.” Hallelujah! I’ve got a scripture available. “Thou hast visited me in the night.”
You could say before you go to bed, “Lord, I’m not dictating to You, but I just want to tell you one thing, I sure would love a visit from you. I’m only going to tell you that I’m available in case You want to pay me a visit. Lord, I’m interested. I’m available to having You wake me up or whatever You want. Father, in case You want to visit me tonight, it will be all right. I’ll be delighted.”
“Thou hast visited me in the night season.” Psalm 17:3
