READ TODAYS EDITION OF RHAPSODY OF REALITIES.
TOPIC: THERE IS MORE IN GOD
Opening Text: Our Lord is great, with limitless strength; we’ll never comprehend what he knows and does (Psalm 147:5 MSG).
Some Christians have reached the point where their lives have become boring and they’re wondering, "What more is there in God?" They’ve become so used to the worship and other activities in church; even God’s Word has become common to them; what a sad situation to be in!
What they haven’t understood is that it’s not just about the activities that take place in church; it’s about the glory that comes out of those activities.
When you understand what comes out from the Spirit, you’ll never be bored; you’d never ask, "What’s more?" People become tired or uninspired by the things of God because they’re carnally minded; just like the children of Israel that got fed up with the manna that was coming out of heaven, and started clamouring for meat!
Walking with the Lord is a journey of endless glory; there’s always more to desire and enjoy in Him. The more He reveals Himself to you, the more hungry you are for Him. Imagine Moses: after he had walked with the Lord for so long, and the Lord had done so many wonderful things in his presence and through him, he still wanted more. He said, "Lord, show me your glory" (Exodus 33:18); because he knew there was more.
Our God is so great; there’s no end to the greatness and awesomeness of His Majesty. Keep growing in the things of the Spirit; keep learning the Word, with an unquenchable desire to know Him more and have His glory revealed in your life. Remember, if you seek Him, you’d find Him (Matthew 7:7); if you hunger and thirst for His righteousness, you’ll be filled (Matthew 5:6).
Dear Father, I thank you for granting me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of you. I’m increasing more and more in knowledge and in judgment, able to discern and function at all times in the centre of your will, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
