More of You Lord, less of me

Maybe you are tired of being tied. You are desperate for just one touch from the Lord. Your eyes are sore, you cry out to Him; you plead with Him “how long should I suffer, how long should I stand in hope and believe for a change. My strength feels gone, I cannot anymore, I feel numb and empty. I need more of You Lord and less of me. I cannot do it on my own. May I decrease and You increase Lord”.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6. Have you ever felt desperate? Maybe you have experienced being desperate to be married, desperate to have a baby, desperate for employment, or desperate to be healed.

The word desperate is defined as having an urgent need or desire. It is something that you want more than anything. How about desperate for God? Did you know only God can create in us a desperation for Him? None of us wake up saying, “I really want more of God.” Our natural minds don’t operate that way. God literally must put in us a desire for more of Him. And when that desire is strong, your pride just goes out of the window and you could care less about what people think.

Picture the woman with the issue of blood feeling desperate for Jesus’ healing power. She didn’t care what anybody thought of her or whether people were looking at her or not. She was desperate. Imagine blind Bartimaeus shouting “Jesus, thou Son of David have mercy on me!” (Mark 10:47). He was desperate and tired of being sick and tired. He wanted a miracle and he knew the only person that could give him one was Jesus. The only person that can give you what you need is Jesus.

Seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you. It takes God to give you the heart of a seeker. It takes God to create in your desperation. You can ass be rest assured that when God gives you a hunger, a thirst, a desperation and strong desire for Him, He is about to satisfy you and be amazingly glorified in your life. Oh, how blessed we are. We are not blessed because we created that desire on our own. We are blessed because He gave it to us and He is about to meet every desire all our desperations per His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
