I AM Waiting for You

There is no other God. There is no other Lord. You are the One for whom we hunger & thirst. Only life in You satisfies now & in eternity. We seek Your face. We seek Your will. We bow, pledge allegiance and adore.

PROPHETIC WORD

Sometimes the Holy Spirit “downloads” a word.  As always, it either will resonate with you or it will not.  No one prophetic word is for each person. But there are some for whom God had intended this.  I am human and imperfect.  Pray before you read and as you read. And this is my prayer for you: ”LORD, please lead each reader perfectly and cause them to receive and remember, only that which is from You for them.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.” ~ Elizabeth

I AM.  I AM.  I AM.  I AM.  I AM.

I AM and there is no other. There is no other God.  Your life is in Me and nowhere else.  Your purpose is through Me and no where else.  Your destiny is from Me.  There is nothing else which will satisfy.

Why do you spend so much time chasing after that which will not satisfy?  I AM.   The streets of the home I have prepared for you are paved in gold.  Gold is not precious. It is common.

Yet, here you chase after it as if it could give you everything you need.  You dig and dig and dig and dig, but find nothing of lasting worth.  You are never satisfied.  You never will be satisfied.  It is never enough because no matter what you find, it is not that for which you thirst.  I made you.  I know.

I created you for intimacy with Me.  I created you because I love you.  I am the only One who will always love you, always understand you, always want what is best for you and work to give it to you.  I have the power to provide and I provide perfectly for those I love, who seek Me in return.  I will never envy or reject. I will not condemn, but will accept all who turn to Me with a heart to repent – a heart to change their ways in recognition that I AM and that they now want relationship with Me.  I sent My Son Jesus to die, so that in taking the punishment for all you have done and will do, My Door is open to you through Him.

I AM. There is no other.  You do not ordain and decide the times and seasons.  I do. It is not for You to decide when life begins or ends. That is My job.  I enable all things.  It is all by My power.  You have no power on Your own.  I AM.

If I were to remove Myself completely, you would be no more.   In Me, all things live move and have their being.  Those who believe they can exist without Me are fools.  And yet….I love them, too.

But even though you mock Me, turn your backs on Me and pretend I am not there, I remain.  I AM.  You will pass away.  Your physical life will end and though I want you with Me for eternity (I yearn for it so deeply that I gave My only Son), the choice is yours.

I AM the answer to everything you seek.  When you finally choose to walk in My way, I have so many gifts for you.  In addition to victory over death (forever!), I remove the need for all your worry and all your anxiety. I give you good purpose no matter what your circumstances.  My Spirit fills you until you are overcome with joy, thanksgiving and a deep abiding peace which cannot be rocked.  And there is no need for rushing, for my plan is perfect.  Jesus, My Son, rested in My will.  He did not rush. It is My gift to you, too.

This does not mean you will always get your way.  I know better.  I AM Your Father. I AM Your Savior.  I AM Your Guide and Comforter.  I know what is best for you and the rest of the world.  I will give you no less.

This does not mean there will be no evil. Evil is because Adam and Eve chose to obey the serpent, trusting him over Me.  There will be evil here. But in the end, I will use it all for good.  Consider the cross! I will bring a harvest out of all of it, for nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing can stop My love or My plans.

I extend My hand to you as a loving Father.  I am waiting for intimacy with you.  I invite you into the quiet where I will share My heart.  Climb up onto My lap in the Spirit and I will tell you the greatest story there has ever been. It is the story of how much I love you.  I will carry you and show you My view.  What has caused you distress need not distress you anymore.

If you will but seek Me as much as you seek after gold and worldly riches, after fleeting fame and celebrity, after position, title and power which have no lasting effect or fulfillment, then I will teach you My voice.  You will hear My voice. My thoughts will resound within you.  You will enter more deeply into My peace and contentment.  I will lead you in the way you are to go and it will be good.  Your heart will be mended and your inner wounds healed.  I will pour out My Spirit on you.  He will teach you. You will learn to hear My voice.  I will teach you My way of love. I will pour My Spirit through you to love others in ways you do not know but I do.

It will not matter whether anyone else notices you for I AM and you will be in Me.  It will be enough because I AM. You are My lily in the field. You are beautiful to me.  I will tend to your needs.  You will grow and change because I ordain it.   You have no power on your own.  You will be in My will for My glory!  And know, that even when no one else sees it (especially when no one else sees) that I see and I know and I will be well pleased with you.  Consider it.  There is nothing better.  There is nothing else which matters.

I AM the LORD and there is no other.  I AM the one true God.  I am He who loves and He who saves.  I am Almighty and Sovereign and the destiny of all is in Me, if they will but turn, know I am God, bow, listen and follow.

I am waiting.  Will you give up pursuit of what you think is right and seek after Me.  I will be found by you and your delight will be never ceasing?  Will you let Me lead you through your days instead of deciding for yourself what you think is right and asking Me to follow?

You are one of My precious ones. They all are.  Like the father of the prodigal son, I wait for you to turn and see that your true life’s purpose is in Me and for Me.  I desire to use you through whom to love them all!

I am building up My army.  It is an army of love.  It is an army of righteousness.  Your orders have been issued.  I am waiting.  Will you accept them?

Look no longer for the approval of the world.  Look only to Me.  They do not know. They are passing away even as you are and they have limited vision and understanding.  Only I AM.

You are beautiful to Me.  I made you in My own image.  I made us to work together – Me working through you even though I know you cannot do it perfectly for you are not God – that they all might know I AM God.

Will you hear my call?  Will you turn and know I am God?  Will you lay down all the other prioritites which are less (but which have become as gods you hope will save) and find your hope in the plans I have for you and the world?  Will you choose to love Me as I love you?  I am waiting.  You are beautiful to Me.  I have good work for you.  I love you as you are. I love you for how you will be in Me as you submit to me, seeking Me and let Me transform your heart even more.  It will be for your joy and mine will be complete as well for I love you.  I AM your Father.  I AM your God.  I AM your answer. I am waiting.

I am a God-seeker--a Jesus-worshipper--a Holy Spirit follower. I create songs, devotions, prayers, books and Bible studies to give words with which to get to know God more. For you. Its for one-on-One encounter unto transformed, transcendent living. This is not my vocation. I am not professional. I am a real, ordinary person just looking to do what God put me here to do. (You have a unique purpose too.) So I am called to the work. It is not my income source, but my gift to those who find it blessing. Eagles Nest Foundation sponsors all projects for you. The result: pure, clean spiritual nutrition to feed that deep insatiable spiritual hunger which eventually overtakes each of us and galvanizes you to the life God has for you. This life is purposeful. Exceptional. You--yes, you--are called to something greater and more satisfying in His service. So it is hoped you'll try this spiritually dense nutrition and find it to be a personal blessing. However, the goodness of God-following doesn't stop there. He uses those who seek Him to be His love and care (justice, mercy, advocate, kindness) very tangibly in the lives of those around you. Not by your power but by His. His ideas. God ideas. Not just good ideas. To be part of changing the world, if you will let Him. You learn to just follow where He leads. That if you listen, He will teach you to hear His voice and then when you obey His inner promptings you will become His incredible hands and feet in this hard world. These materials will help! They will help you aim your life towards God in a way you never look back. You will not be the same. He will become the River in your desert spaces and you will become a conduit of this same River of refreshing, replenishing Water of Life to others. Find a prayer. Pick a blog post. Read a book. Be led deeper into the Bible. Select a song which resonates and use it and use it again to go close and ever closer to the God who longs to draw you near. Oh, and don't be tempted to think I'm a crazy over-spiritualized loony...My background is financial planning and counseling. Almost 40 years of it. To choose to believe in God is not to leave practicality and reason behind, but to learn that there is that which goes beyond it and includes it, unto true life fulfillment beyond all your dreams for the one who keeps seeking Him. I am a third generation Californian. I am a person to whom family means everything. The only priority higher is God. The foothills of the Sierra Nevada are my home. It is here the 1849-1856 Gold Rush is still glorified. Easy money? Actually only for the few. Even though I was raised in the Church, it took me ten years of doubting God even existed to realize that without Him, no matter how much of this life's "stuff" is accumulated, I actually have nothing. To come to know that all those who chased after gold are dead and all those who still chase stuff will be dead. That's when I became a God-seeker. Looking for that more. And Eureka! (This is California's state slogan and means I found it.) I found God...or rather, I discovered He was there and had been there waiting for me to look for Him the whole time. May you discover more of Him for you, greater flourishing life and greater flourishing for all in the world as well. God bless you! ~Elizabeth
