We continue where we left off from last episode in the excerpt from the book about asking God for more. Asking for God’s more is always more of Himself or more for Himself and this truth may seem disappointing at first but this truth will bring you freedom. We need material things to survive like money to pay the bills and food to prevent hunger. When we are alone or scared, we crave a physical hug from a live person, not just a Bible verse. To ask God is to ask for more of God. God’s greatest gift will always be his presence. Asking God for more is asking for more of God or more for God.
We are taught not to be greedy. Pastor Kevin had even been taught that we can’t be Christians and ask God for more but God wants to redeem the word ‘more’. Nobody wants us to have more than God Himself. God’s more is always more of Himself or more for Himself. Wanting and having more is not selfish or sinful for what matters is where we find our more and what we do with it. That can be selfish and sinful but God wants you to remember above all else, God wants you to have more and the best way to do this is to understand all we can about God’s more.
God’s more is conditional to our intent. God’s more starts and ends with God’s intention. God’s more is always to fulfill His purpose for His glory and it will always be conditional on our willingness to ask with a purity of intent. The whole idea is to set aparat God’s more for His glory. His blessings like his presence, peace and power to us are guaranteed. He trusted us with what we have so we may be willing to give it away for His purposes and for his glory. God wishes you to share what He has given you to others. It will be reckless when you consider what you and your loved ones need but please just do it. Setting God free and living recklessly for God is where you will begin to experience more from God than you ever thought possible. The more of Him we experience, the more of Him we receive. The more we have, the more we can give to others. The bible contains multiple stories of people who gave to others, thinking it will jeopardize their survival only for God to use it to bring their revival. Live recklessly for God and you will not only survive but you will thrive on the authority of God’s word.
