Let’s Break It Down:
God pulses through our veins. He is ever present in our lives from day-to-day. I believe our desire should be ‘I want more of Christ!’, every single day. As my walk with the Lord has been continually progressing I notice myself calling out to him all the time. Like waking up in bed at such weird hours, saying, ‘Jesus, Thank You for life!’ or just praying. God wants us to desire him, He longs to hear praise from His people. When I hear the excuse ‘Oh, I’m just going to enjoy life now, and experience God later’ – I start to wonder why you would ever want to miss out on what He has for your life now! These are the years that matter the most, our youth, our adolescence. Telling Him we don’t need help in these times breaks my heart, because we do. God has a lot to pour out onto us! He has a lot to tell us! Do not let your flesh get in the way of letting God lead your life. He is an awesome God, and desires such a strong relationship with you!
What can we do in the Lord?
Fervently pray, seek, desire, long for, trust in the Lord. To be consumed in His presence we must spend time with Him, and worship Him. I don’t want to be the ‘status quo’ women of this generation. I will be full of Christ, in my innermost being, so He bubbles over in me! I will seek Christ with all my heart, and keep his commands in my heart. I will long for more of Him each and every day. And I will seek His direction in my life!
The Lord’s Direction
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” (NIV)
This scripture says it all, God wants everything to do with your life. Not just the little parts, or the minuscule parts, he wants to take hold of the huge things, the things that seem impossible! Don’t underestimate God, He can do anything. We should be happy because we are living in the Lord!
“I’m glad in God, far happier than you would ever guess—happy that you’re again showing such strong concern for me. Not that you ever quit praying and thinking about me. You just had no chance to show it. Actually, I don’t have a sense of needing anything personally. I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I’ve found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am. I don’t mean that your help didn’t mean a lot to me—it did. It was a beautiful thing that you came alongside me in my troubles.” Philippians 4:11-14 (The Message)
The Lord will always be present in your life, whether you choose to acknowledge it or not. Whatever, wherever our circumstances, we should be content in what the Lord has given us; eternal life in his Son the Lord Jesus!
