"Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?" (Matthew 6:30)
Are we experiencing the "much more" in our life that God intends for us?
The life abundant?
The full life that He ordained?
Most of us would probably say that we are not in the "much more" category. But most of us probably desire to be there in a big way! I know that I do.
The key to the "much more" in this life lies in direct correlation to our obedience to God. When we are walking in His ways and we are consecrating our lives in Holiness to Him, we will certainly begin to see the "much more" of Christ start to take shape and thus take root in our spiritual lives.
The more we seek, the more we will find. The "much more" we seek, the "much more" we will find!
The deeper our relationship with God becomes, the deeper our desire to walk in obedience becomes. Once we begin to taste the richness of life walking in the Spirit, the more we will desire to ascend higher and higher in our relationship with Him.
We begin to reach up in anticipation of Him reaching down.
We learn to put our trust soley in the Lord.
We begin to understand the submissive state we have to achieve so we can stay in His will in all things.
Once we obtain the sweet and intimate relationship with Christ that He so desires, we begin to take such delight in our Savior!
He emerges to us in such a new light. We start to take marvelous joy in discovering who He is and who we are in Him.
Thus our "much more" in this life starts to become more and more evident in the days to come.
We begin to cherish the times we sit before our God and soak in the radiant glory of His presence.
At His Feet, we prostrate ourselves and embark in the wondrous rapture of fellowship with our precious Lord and Savior.
Drenching ourselves in His splendor, we tap into the awesome aspects of His grace that He so lovingly dispenses to us.
As we allow the Holy Spirit to minister to the depths of our souls, we begin to experience the "much more" of a life in Christ.
Deep and intimate fellowship.
Father, thank you for the 'much more' that a life walking in your ways offers to us. Thank you for the precious gift of Your Word. Thank you for the love you bestow on us. Thank you for your sweet mercy and grace. May we walk in obedience to your commandments and experience the fullness of life made possible by the sacrifice of Your Son. You are life and You are breath to us. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
In His Mighty Grip,
