THE WAITER

“MYA’S EARLY MORNING DEVOTIONAL”


💎📖 For we, [not relying on the Law but] through the [Holy] Spirit’s [help], by faith anticipate and wait for the blessing and good for which our righteousness and right standing with God [our conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action, causes us] to hope.

Galatians 5:5 AMP


I LOVE MEDITATING WITH OLDER BIBLE DEVOTIONS ESPECIALLY “STREAMS IN THE DESERT. OLDER DEVOTIONALS WERE WRITTEN IN A TIME WHEN PEOPLE OF GOD WERE NOT AS CONCERNED ABOUT PLAYING ROLLS AND KEEPING UP MAN OR SELF MADE IMAGES.


THEY WERE VERY CONSCIOUS OF THEIR MORALITY, SOMETIMES MAYBE A LITTLE TOO FOCUSED ON HEAVEN TO BE MUCH EARTHLY GOOD BUT THEY ALSO WERE NOT SO CARNAL MINDED THAT THEY HAD NO POWER TO OVERCOME THE WORLD WITHIN THEMSELVES OR WITHOUT.


THIS MORNINGS DEVOTION REVEALS A STRUGGLE TO WAIT ON GOD BUT NOT ONLY TO WAIT ON GOD BUT TO BE IN SUCH DESPAIR BECAUSE OF THE PROMISE BEING SO LONG DELAYED THAT HOPE HAS BEEN LOST AND NOW “THE WAITER” IS WAITING ON HOPE TO RETURN AND A PROMISE TO BE FULFILLED.


HAVE YOU EVER BEEN THERE IN YOUR LIFE?


I HAVE AND IT IS TRULY A DESERT EXPERIENCE BUT IN THAT PLACE OF HOPELESSNESS I FOUND A RESTING PLACE IN YESHUAH.


I FOUND THAT THE LOSS OF HOPE FOR THE “THING” I WAS ASKING FOR WAS WORKING TOGETHER FOR MY GOOD, IT WAS WORKING IN ME A “DIVINE CONTENTMENT” IN HIM.


IT WAS WEANING MY SOUL FROM THE DESIRES OF THIS LIFE THAT CAN SO EASILY DISTRACT ONE FROM ABBA FATHER AND DRAIN YOU OF ANY AND ALL DESIRE TO NOT ONLY FOLLOW HIM BUT TO BE CONFORMED TO HIS IMAGE.


DIVESTED AND VOID OF HOPE FOR MORE OF MORE AND LEVELS AND HIGHER LEVELS HAS LEFT ME WITH A MORE PURE DESIRE TO SIMPLY “WAIT” ON HIM TO BE MORE LIKE HIM AND TO DO HIS WILL.


SO I’M THANKFUL FOR “WAITING” ON HOPE TO RETURN … SELAH💝
