“Take everything; I don’t want it, I don’t need it, God.
I just want You.
Take me I’m Yours…”
I wish that we all could confess and proclaim this. The real problem with the believers of this generation is that we seek the kingdom of God, as well as His righteousness, as well as all the things that should be seeking us. Nothing comes first!
We don’t have the time to seek God and make Him a priority; all we do is seek him and many other things. There is a reason why the scriptures say that “…and all these things shall be added unto you (Matt 6:33b). This is because seeking ‘these things’ is neither our job nor our business; our business is to seek God and His righteousness and patiently wait for our rewards.
Oh! How wonderful it would be if we were to live lives where we only crave the Lord and Himself.
On a weekly basis, we go to church and sings songs with lyrics like, “for your glory I would do anything…”, “you are all I want…”, “take me, I’m yours, use me…” e.t.c. But, in truth, we are only interested in doing the things that will multiply us physically.
It is high time we stopped putting our careers, dreams, family and businesses ahead of God and the spirit.
We claim to be Christians, but we still only follow the moral and worldly ways to success. Whatever happened to spiritual perseverance and hard work? We seem to have forgotten that everything that goes on in the physical has already been handled in the spiritual realm. Tarry in prayer and communion with God and see how I brings success to you. And, if success seems far-fetched, don’t close the ‘God chapter’ in your life. Instead, keep chasing after him.
Until we let go of all our desires and wants; and sincerely thirst for God and give our whole being to him, we cannot truly achieve what He has stacked up for us.
Ask yourself this today…“if I never get that house, that car, or be a superstar; and my dreams never come true, will I be satisfied with You?”
