Lately, I have been led to pray even more as I learnt that prayer does wet one’s appetite for God’s presence and will in one’s life.
One’s spiritual hunger will always lead him/her to a prayerful life.
There must be more than this
For some time, I’ve realised that I have been hitting a plateau with my walk with God. This has caused a deep dissatisfaction within me.
“There must be more than this!”
“There must be more of God that I have yet experienced!”
“Teach me Lord how I can really live my faith and life with more of Your power whether it is in my workplace; in my bedroom; in church; with my friends or family!”
I know for a certain that there just have to more than this cos my God is a BIG God.
Pray, pray and PRAY
I am learning more how prayer is the “secret” of drawing near to God. Without God, I inevitably limit myself as I depend on my own strength without tapping on His supernatural resources.
Having a vision alone is not enough, we need passion to see it to fulfillment. And prayer is the key to sustaining that passion.
Prayer also helps me to be sure and clear of the path that I am threading as I hear His voice providing me direction and encouragement.
I need God
Albeit this period of uncertainty and barrenness, this has somehow dug deeper a spiritual hunger for more of Him. So I know this phase is good and I am earnestly praying and trudging towards where He is leading me step by step.
As quoted from a preacher, “Our spiritual appetite is vital in determining whether or not we turn out as a man of destiny or a man with a mediocre life.”
And I am determine to live out His destiny for my life for His redemptive purpose.
