“I Want More”
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6 (KJV)
Brothers and Sisters imagine what would happen in our lives if we would have that same desire, love, and want for the Lord. Yes, we talk about it, we sing about it, we read about it – the greater desire, the greater passion, the desperation, the more of the Lord, but do we really put it into action? It’s simple; it’s not a hard thing to figure out. We don’t have to take a top theological course on how to have a greater desire or love for the Lord, or to experience the “more” in our relationship with the Lord.
Let me tell you how it can be put into some action. It’s just denying ourselves a day at a time, which is daily, and reading His word daily and letting it become a reality in our lives. Finding time in our daily schedules to pray, and letting Him know from our hearts that we desire more of Him. Letting the Holy Spirit lead and guide us in all that we do. Staying before the Lord in His presence, as much as we can. “As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God.” (Psalm 42:1). As we do this, we’ll start decreasing – it will be less, and less, and less of us – and He’ll start increasing – it will be more, and more, and more of Him. “He must increase, but I must decrease.” (John 3:30). Just like the waters had to continually decrease in the flood (Noah and the Ark) before any “top of the mountains” were seen, we have to continually decrease so that we can see the “top of our mountains”! “And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month; in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the top of the mountains seen.” (Genesis 8:5).
I want you to know that our God our Father is seeking true worshipers that will worship Him in spirit and in truth. “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:24). He’s seeking after those who will say, “I Want More” of You God, “I Want More!” Do you have a deeper desire, a deeper hunger and thirst for more of the Lord? If you want more, He’ll fill you.
