Together, We Move

For so long I've been in a waiting phase.
It was great because I was waiting with Him.

He was pouring Himself out and opening my eyes and ears to see and hear more about who He is. Like the Tabernacle covered by the cloud in the day and the fire at night.. I stayed still there with Him.

"Now on the day that the tabernacle was erected the cloud covered the tabernacle, the tent of the testimony, and in the evening it was like the appearance of fire over the tabernacle, until morning. So it was continuously; the cloud would cover it by day, and the appearance of fire by night. Whenever the cloud was lifted from over the tent, afterward the sons of Israel would then set out; and in the place where the cloud settled down, there the sons of Israel would camp. At the command of the LORD the sons of Israel would set out, and at the command of the LORD they would camp; as long as the cloud settled over the tabernacle, they remained camped."
Numbers 9:15-18

But now the cloud has gone and  I am in a moving phase.
And it is great, because I am moving, together, with Him.

That's why I haven't posted in a month! We have been very busy!

You see, a while ago He showed me, through my desire, what was to come in my life. But I had no idea what I should do in order to get the wheels moving.

"I've got to move and move in faith!" Right?!

That's what so many teachers have said. They have said that I must 'do' in order for blessings to come to pass. Like there is a way for me to stand in the way of His will.

But He told me that there's nothing I have to do. There's no checklist that I must go through -- no map I must follow -- He does it ALL. He tells me where we're going through my heart's desires -- which are His desires -- and then HE takes me.

"For it is God who works in you to will and to act on behalf of His good pleasure."
Philippians 2:13

He takes me by putting a flame of desire into my heart. By giving me the will and the ability to act. It's not me doing anything, for I am merely like the tabernacle, draped in flesh, being moved from here to there at His command. He is my action. He is my movement.

And now we're blazing down the highway to where we've always been going.

And it all seems to be moving so fast. And my quiet and personal time is far less than it had been in our waiting time. In times past I would have said to myself, "I need to spend more time with God." But after everything that He's shown me -- everything that we've been through -- I could never ever say that again. We are doing everything together, always! I would be a lifeless lump of flesh if He wasn't moving in me and through me. Every single moment in my existence was, is, and will forever be lived with Him!

‘For in Him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘- We are His offspring.’ 
~ Acts 17:28
