Summary: WAIT UPON THE LORD to receive the promise before you step out
*DAY 2 OF RESTORATION FASTING*
Acts 1:4King James Version (KJV)
4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
Beloved waiting upon the Lord is a key to receiving His promises and all you desire.
Jesus asked the Apostles and all the disciples to wait for the promise of the Father which is Precious Holy Spirit and He told them not to leave Jerusalem until they have received it.
Jesus made them understand that when Precious Holy Spirit comes upon them they shall receive power. And with this power they will be able to do what He has asked them to do and please God by faith.
Beloved wait upon the Lord till you receive the promise of the Father. Don't rush out of your prayer closet, wait for Him. Let Him have fellowship with you in that closet.
Beloved, don't step out of your house to go to town to do anything until you have had that fellowship with God. When you have fellowship with Him before stepping out, you go in new power, authority and glory and your day becomes different. It becomes very favourable and a very good one.
You feel great and ready for anything. Beloved the Apostles waited until they received the promise before stepping out to even extend their preaching beyond Jerusalem.
You have no option but to wait, if you really want to encounter Him and receive the promise.
*Beloved, wait and receive the promise before stepping out. IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS and nothing else, don't be deceived. Wait and receive.*
Father please help me to develop the character to wait in my prayer closet for you so that I'll always wait for you. In the mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
