"More", it's a simple, yet endless desire.
I've been stuck on this idea for weeks now, so hopefully it's as much of an encouragement/challenge to you guys as it has been for me.
A few weeks ago I was spending time with the Lord and I was on my way to the cross on Wildwood's property. As I literally ran across the parking lot at church to spend time at the cross, I felt the Spirit speaking to me saying, "this is what it's supposed to be like." As I asked the Lord to search my heart, a harsh reality was unearthed from within me... If I'm not giddy about the time I spend with Jesus, then I must evaluate the depths of my relationship with Him. I have been checking my heart ever since.
-Do I want more of His Word?
-Do I want more of His Spirit?
-Do I want more of His presence?
"You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart." -Jeremiah 29:13
Please ask yourself right now, what do you desire with ALL of your heart? If we are willing to search with the entirety of our beings, He will show up in a big way. If our heart is a home and Jesus is the guest, please don't let the dust-filled, spider-infested, uninhabited basement be His place of residence. He is the guest of honor! Remember that the INN left no room for the the newly born Savior of the world... Ask yourself, are you making room for the One who made a way for you?
True spiritual renovation is able to commence as we welcome the "more" that the Lord has for us specifically. Spend time in His Word, ask to be filled and empowered by His Spirit, and enjoy daily time in His Presence.
Please join me in this battle for "More", because the rewards are of eternal benefit!
