Monday Manna — Almost but Not Yet – The Mystery of the Kingdom

phot-mar14-hbs-2-hires-c9538c3We all have seasons of unmet expectancy.  Still, in my almost 75 years of life, I’ve never seen so many in the Body all experiencing this at the same time.  I came across this in my journals today from 2013 and just reading it removed some of the tension and renewed my hope.  May you be blessed.

Father, how can I feel full and empty at the same time?  I feel the press of Your Presence as if there is a huge breakthrough or blessing just waiting for the exact time and yet wait in seeming emptiness, longing for intimacy with You.

Have I distanced myself from You or is this a season of stillness that I’ve just not embraced?  What is it, Father?

“It is My joy to give you the Kingdom.  It comes without observation.” He said.

“I am doing a deep work.  I am relaying foundation.  Fractured parts must be removed and new pilings put in place.

My ways are not your ways.  I turn darkness to light with a word.  Transformation occurs in a flash of time, appointed by Me.  You cannot make it happen, nor prepare for its coming.  Transformation is on its way.  Like a comet that you can see coming but find it impossible to mark the day or hour of its appearing.

Rest in My love.  Trust in My ability to completely transform your lives to the point of you not recognizing or fully understanding who you are.  I am remaking you for the inside out to reveal My Son.

I already see you complete and shining like the sun, yet there is still transformation occurring.   You feel disturbance and instability.  All I feel is love and joy.  Will you trust Me?”

Luke 17:20-21 AMP  Asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He replied to them by saying, The kingdom of God does not come with signs to be observed or with visible display, 21 Nor will people say, Look! Here [it is]! or, See, [it is] there! For behold, the kingdom of God is within you [in your hearts] and among you [surrounding you].

Abba knows our end from the beginning of time.  He already sees His finished work in us before we are ever born.  He is filled with joyful anticipation for the manifestation and loving every moment of our growing transformation.  The more we know His love and power, the more we can trust Him through the process.

Let’s spend time rejoicing for the work He is doing in us and trust Him for the timing of its completion. And let’s cooperate with Him by listening to and following the Holy Spirit even if we can’t see what He is doing.

Philippians 1:6b He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.

Shalom ♥
