Don’t get me wrong. I pray. I pray all day long. I pray in my head while I do almost everything. I mumble throughout my day like Hannah. I talk to Jesus about it all. The only way that I get through most of my days is through my conversations with the Lord (and a little bit of coffee).
But there is a place. A place of intimacy that I have neglected in my fatigue. A place where I once intentionally met with God.
I have many reasons to be tired. 6 children makes me tired just saying that I have them, lol. Add the other stresses of life, and throw in challenges in my health that cause fatigue, and I have a recipe for some good excuses.
God speaks to me all day long. I call Him my friend. But there is a difference between casual conversations with a friend and an experience in the chambers of your Bridegroom. There is an intimacy that can only manifest past the threshold of the secret place. There is a knowing of revelation that can only be received as a bride.
My healing is on the other side of that threshold. My promises are on the other side of that threshold. My manifested purpose is on the other side of that threshold. They all sit in His chambers like a treasure waiting to be found. It is up to me to contend for them.
At this moment, I am being challenged to push past my flesh and prepare myself to receive from the Bridegroom. I’m being called into the chambers of my King.
While I love my casual fellowship with the Lord, it no longer satisfies my purpose. There is more. There is supernatural power and heavenly encounters that can only come from being impregnated with seeds of greatness in His chambers.
I’m not the only one. There is more for us all. He says come. Come and lay in my presence. Let Me whisper Words of greatness. Let me affirm who you are. Let Me fill you with instructions for your purpose. I’m waiting for you to enter. Everything that you need is in My chambers.
Revelation 19:6-8 (NKJV)
6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the[a] Lord God Omnipotent reigns! 7 Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” 8 And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
It’s time to lay down our excuses and pick up our crosses. We have to fight through our tiredness to receive our refreshing. Wholeness is ours. Perfect love belongs to us. It is time to drink the cup that we have been given and fulfill the plans of the Lord for our lives.
Father, we thank You that You have prepared a place of intimacy for us. Forgive us for making excuses and not entering into Your chambers. We want to be a prepared bride that has made herself ready to receive from her King. We want to intentionally cross the threshold of Your chambers into the secret place. We want to purposely contend in prayer and pursue your thoughts and instructions. We want to encounter You in new ways and grow in Your nature. We want the full power of the cross. Everything that You have intended for us is ours. We crucify our flesh and we seek Your Spirit and Your strength. We are yours. Have Your way. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
