I want to be steeped in Jesus to the point that I react to situations like He would.
I want to spend so much time with Him that I begin to take on His characteristics.
Can you imagine how awesome it would be to always think like Him? behave like Him? resemble Him?
If I saturate myself in His Word on a daily basis and earnestly seek to grow in Him and continue to fill myself up with Him, then He will just naturally overflow out of me!
Spending time in the scriptures and spending time in prayer is the key to equipping ourselves with the things we need to become like Christ.
There is such a desire in my heart to be so much more for Jesus than I am now. I want to always be climbing the next step. Seeking more knowledge. Searching for more of Him. Filling up with more of His Word. Overflowing with His grace and mercy.
I want more. More Jesus. I want Jesus to rain down on me from heaven with a flood!
I want to study more.. glean more.. reach out more.. find more.. worship more..love more... pray more..
I know that as I humble myself and genuinely seek these things in my life - God will open the windows of heaven and pour out to me when He is ready. When I am ready. Then I will wade in the puddles of the overflow.
For now I seek His presence. I remain faithful. I lift my face toward heaven.
I wait for the rain.
"Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain...." I Kings 18:45
In His Grip,
