The Journey of Preparation to Singleness, Marriage & Intimacy With God
Day 34: INCREASE CAPACITY
Have you ever wanted more? You feel like there has to be more to life than what you are experiencing right now. The desires in your heart are so big it hurts to think about them in the comparison of your current circumstances.
This feeling or way of thought can only be quenched or treated by going deeper, growing wider, soaring higher, and expanding the breadth of your capacity for more from God.
Today’s Lesson: The fact that you want, desire and hunger for more, is an indication that God has more for you.
Jabez prayed pray for God to bless him and to enlarge his coast. Jabez wanted more, asked for more and God gave him more. But what did God really do for Jabez. He increased his capacity to receive more.
In this journey of singleness, marriage and intimacy with God, we too must want more, ask for more and be ready for the the more to manifest. But this can only be done when we have the capacity to handle the more that we are asking for.
God will only give you what you can handle.
I have found myself crying, shouting and spinning around for more, yet it didn't happen. God told me I wasn't ready. Why? Because if he gave me what I was asking for it may kill me. Because I would not be able to handle it.
So now instead of asking for more, ask God to increase your capacity for the more you are seeking. God will then give you specifically the strategy you will need to increase your capacity for the more that you desire.
Keep in mind, your more is not my more and your capacity is not my capacity. Also remember that what it may take me to increase my capacity for more, may not be what you must do to increase your capacity for more. So compare yourself to no one. This process is between you and the Lord.
Until tomorrow push into increasing your capacity for more because it prepares you for your next.
With Beautiful Love
