[Sisters], I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 3:13-14
What’s the desire of your heart? Are you satisfied with just enough, or do you want more? More peace, more hope, more joy, more love, more fulfillment.
I want more! I want more than just being saved from God’s wrath, more than calling myself a Christian, more than just a ticket to Heaven, more than the bare minimum God offers.
I’ve concluded that it won’t be enough until, like the apostle Paul, my faith becomes sight and I know Him as fully as I am known by Him (1 Corinthians 13:12). I long for everything God wants to give me.
I want more of His image reflected in my life.
More of His Spirit in my service.
More of His glory on my knees.
What are you longing for? If you want more, isn’t it time you began embracing the God-filled life?
