When you need something a little stronger

Do you ever feel like when you have a headache one table is not enough? Do you ever feel like you need more an extra hour of sleep in the morning to be more awake? Do you ever feel like you need more encouragement to make it through the day? Do you ever realize you need something stronger that can help you maintain your level of faith? A sermon or a message with an extra punch? You might be at a point where a jumpstart is needed or an extra push can keep you going. There are times when we can’t go on unless we have something stronger that will remove the bad things that have happened to us. We are in need of more of God. There is always more. An extra dose of peace. An extra helping of joy. The Lord sets a table before us and if we pay close attention we will find that there is more available and our spiritual hunger can only be satisfied by more of God. If you need something stronger to boost your faith, to increase peace or to get rid of negativity, know that the Lord has it for you. Don’t stay at the level that men present to you. God has more than anyone will ever tell you He does. Our human limitations limit God and when we go with what we know, think and feel we can miss out on God’s best and what He has in store for us. God will give you that something stronger you need.

The Word of God is medicine for the body, mind, soul and spirit. If you are aching in one of those areas, take the tablets of the Word of God. Have the daily supplements that can only be found in the Bible. Cherish the nuggets of wisdom in the Word of God. When you have a spiritual head cold, the Word of God can help you get rid of the discomfort and heal you. When your spirit is in a knot and you are having spiritual cramps because you are confused and you feel heaviness, God’s Word will relieve you of all those symptoms. However, sometimes you take in the Word and nothing seems to change. That is when you need something stronger. I am not saying that you need to find something other than God. Find more of God. Dig deeper. Spend more time in the Word and ask for more. God can do exceedingly abundantly more than you imagine. If you pray and ask Him to give you more, He will give you something stronger. Let Him choose how He does it. Just trust that He has the ability to give you that extra strength, that extra boost and that extra blessing. He is the God of more. The God of exceedingly more. Be receptive to His provisions. Be ready to receive blessings that surpass all understanding. There is more for you and God is willing to give it to you. Don’t settle for less. Don’t walk around in spiritual pain. God will do for you what nothing and no one else can. He has something stronger for you.

A few years ago I wanted more of God. I needed more. I longed for more. I wasn’t happy with where I was. I felt the urge to pray all the time but I didn’t know why I was praying. My spirit was craving God. My spirit lacked spiritual strength. I was decreasing but the Lord in me wasn’t increasing. It is when I learned that He had to increase so I could decrease that things started to change. I prayed for more of His direction. I pray for His Spirit. Every day I sought the Lord’s face and looked for His Spirit. If you need something stronger for your spiritual life, learn to flow with the Holy Spirit. He will show you what it’s like to go from glory to glory and He will teach you what is important and emphasize the majesty of Jesus in your life. When you yield to the Spirit of God, you set yourself up for spiritual abundance. You prepare yourself for an increase of His knowledge and of His love. The Holy Spirit will provide a stronger message about Jesus. He will take you step by step on a journey of awakening of your spiritual senses. He will amplify your thirst for the truth and your hunger to be more like Jesus. There will always be more in the Lord. God will give you something stronger every time you ask. Ask and you shall receive!
