by Apostle Gabriel Cross
I couldn’t move for the Glory of The Lord had weighed me down. I tried to refrain to my feet but I heard his voice say, “Rest my child, this is where I want you to be.” So I laid there pondering on the many things I needed to do.
I responded, “But Lord, I have so much that needs to be done, so much to do.” He replied, “This is why you’re restless and not accomplishing the things you need to, hush my child, for I am carrying you”. Then I felt this cool calming breeze, blow all over me, as he laid me down in green pastures. His quintessence, the glory of His presence.
Suddenly, stillness, silence, all I could hear was Him breathing. In Returning and Rest I am delivered. Quietness and Trust have now become my strength, and with each breath of his Spirit, he spoiled the plans of the enemy, concerning me.
O the weight of his Glory, became heavier, as I reclined in His presence and retired from the arms of my flesh. His weight became so overwhelming that nothing else mattered but Him. I forgot where I had been, what I had done, and what I needed to do. A new awareness of who He is, who I am in Him, and how together we have already overcome. I felt convicted, I felt unclean, for I had been doing things on my own and was about to do some more things without his help. I repented and asked for his mercy and his grace, for trying to do things independently and not inner-dependently.
Instantly, in a moment, I was supernaturally translated from this place to another. Oh what a beautiful place, a pulchritudinous place, adorned with grace, flowing with the river of Pishon (Pure gold is found there and rare perfume and precious stones.) Deep, deep, deep realms of Glory, plush flourishing gardens, and the heartwarming rays of the Son. I thought within myself, where have I been, I’ve never seen a place like this before, and never would I desire to leave.
At that instance, He began to speak, “When you repose from your movement, in exchange of the Glory, moving through you, then, and then only, can you truly move and have your being…I prostrated my will in total surrender, holy abandonment, and pure worship to Him.
Then I responded, “Yes, Lord, yes, for in your presence, the Glory of your embrace, I am unlimited, unhindered, and uninhibited, but in my strength, my own will, my own understanding, I can’t do anything without you. As I came to the end of myself, I realized, I couldn’t move, I couldn’t move, not because of man’s religion and restriction, but because of Heaven’s relationship and revelation. The Glory. O the Glory of your embrace…Selah
