MONTHLY PRAYER FOCUS: October/November 2020
“COME AWAY AND WAIT WITH ME”
At a recent “Sitting at His Feet” session on Friday night we experienced a beautiful orchestration of His word being spoken to our hearts. As one person shared what He was saying to them it was bringing confirmation to another in the room as to what they were hearing. I love it when He does this! The thread through it all was His desire for us to
“COME AWAY AND WAIT WITH ME!”
We were singing, “I could sing of Your love forever” when someone was led by the Lord to read Psalm 130:5-7,
“I will wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than watchman wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning. O Israel, put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with him is full redemption. He himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.”
A bit later as another worship leader was singing from Psalm 27 we were led to read the chapter and it ends with,
“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” (14)
Another person had been led to read from a devotional book called, “Come away my Beloved” and began to read to us: “O my soul, wait upon God, and He will do you good. Yes, He will refresh your soul. For His tender mercies are never failing, and His kindness toward you is as the morning…”
All the while another person had been led to meditate during the worship on Song of Songs 2 and so we listened as verses 10-14 were read,
“My lover spoke and aid to me, “Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me. See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me. My dove in the clefts of the rock, in the hiding places on the mountainside, show me your face, let me hear your voice, for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.”
There was a joy and delight in the heart of Jesus as we were intentionally gathered to sit at His feet and hear Him confirm His desire for us to come away and wait with Him. He loves to hear our voices and to be in our presence as we choose to enter His presence together. In this place He was renewing our souls, encouraging our hearts, and reminding us that with Him is unfailing love!
As I write this in reflection, I am reminded of Jesus’ words in Revelation 3:20,
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.”
WHAT A PRIVILEGE IT IS TO OPEN THE DOOR OF OUR HEARTS AND WELCOME JESUS TO COME IN AND FELLOWSHIP WITH US! WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO JOIN US IN RESPONDING TO THE HIS HEARTBEAT FOR US TO COME AWAY WITH HIM!
We bless you in the name of Jesus to hear His voice calling you today to “come away and be with Him” so that you too can find encouragement for your heart and renewal for your soul as He showers you afresh with His unfailing love!
