More Of You, O Lord

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 1 Corinthians 2:12

I need to yearn for the Spirit of God that freely gives from God. He is speaking and I need to posture myself to listen. I must rid myself of distractions in my heart so I can accept the things of God. All else is fleeting and futile except for knowing more of Christ. He wants to reveal himself to me, but I must first appraise myself and remove all that leads me away from God.

Jesus’ death gave me His Spirit. Only by His Spirit am I regenerated. My bones were dead and dry until the Spirit gave me life. The Spirit is my lifeline to the Father where I receive all power for life and godliness. A life centered on the cross and focused on the gospel is only possibly by the Spirit’s strength.

Open my eyes to see what pulls me away from you. Help me to walk in the path that will stretch my faith and reveal more of Jesus to me. Guard me from discouragement when I see areas that need growth. Make the only thing that matters to me is bringing your kingdom comes in this life some am ready for the life to come. Soften the soil of my heart so the spirit can cultivate more of Christ in me.
