Day 24 – I’m hungry for more

Day 24 350x268 Day 24   Im hungry for moreOne of the questions I’ve asked the LORD many times over the years is “LORD, how do I walk in all the power that You’ve made available to me, so that the world can really see who You are? How do I show the world You?” I’m hungry for more…

I get so discouraged when I go through the same issues again and again, and I see others do it too. I know in my ‘knower’ that Jesus can break those cycles and mindsets and set us free from them forever. There’s plenty of evidence of it all throughout the New Testament. He told a sickness to go or commanded health, and it happened straight away! No hesitation, no coming back to the prayer line another couple of times before it worked, just instant healing. Now, if He said that we would do even greater works than He did, then I want to do them! I want to see people walking free from physical sickness and from mind sickness (which we all have in various areas). It hurts me too much to see people still walking around with problems that Jesus can fix in a second! I’m hungry for more…

I met a friend for coffee the other day and they aren’t Christian. But, as generally happens with my secular friends, they steer the conversation round to ‘religion’ and they’re usually prefaced with statements like “I’m not religious, but…”.
I used to be so worried about how I would answer questions like ‘Where do dinosaurs fit into the Bible?’ and ‘How did the population increase if there was only Adam, Eve, Cain & Abel?’. I would get so worried about letting God down or ruining His reputation because I didn’t have a definitive answer. This drove me to study relentlessly thinking that I could learn all there was to know and thus be able to refute every argument anyone came up with. There came a point in my journey with God where I learned to let that go. I believe that if I am to respond to anything that anyone says, the Holy Spirit will tell me what to say. If He doesn’t say anything then He knows what He’s doing and He’s big enough to look after His own reputation. Phew…
So, at the end of our discussion this person said something that is still ringing in my ears. They said, “The Bible isn’t logical and I am a logical person. SHOW ME that God is real and then I might believe.”
Those two words revved up the fire in my belly and fanned the flames to the point where I burn with the passion to move up to the next level. Of course, if (and when) my life is such that when people meet me, they meet Jesus, they will then see who He is and not just hear words that make no sense to them. They will experience His love and power. They will walk away changed, healed, loved on and set free from stuff that has plagued them for years! I’m hungry for more…

So now my ‘ask’ of the LORD is to heal me, love on me, show me how to be so aware of Him and to walk so closely with Him that the world sees Him when they look at me. I’m hungry for more…and He’s showing me!

I’ve just read this line and it says it perfectly. A lady really wanted to step up and Jesus said to her…

‘You provide the effort and I’ll provide the strength’

Thank You LORD – here we go!!!!!
