How much space have you given God to move in your life? God will consume as much of you as you make available to Him.
“‘Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you’” (Matt. 7:7 KJV).
If you really want God to work in and through your life, then make some space!
“Then Jesus told his disciples, ‘If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me’” (Matt. 16:24 ESV).
Let’s examine Luke 8:41-56.
A ruler of the synagogue is struggling. Jairus is his name. His daughter occupies her death bed. His only child. Desperate. Saddened. Heartbroken.
Teary-eyed, he wonders, “What can I do?”
He has heard of Jesus. The man responsible for mending what’s broken. Healing what’s hurting. Opening blind eyes. Redeeming what appears unredeemable.
I often grow tired of following Jesus. Why? Because I focus more on my efforts than God’s grace. Every night, nothing stands out more in my mind than how well I performed that particular day. This lifestyle wears me down. It makes me depressed. And it removes the joy of Christ from my life.
You see, I’m like a tired Christian. I grudgingly open my Bible. I hesitantly pray. I serve out of obligation more so than love.
God is an endless treasure chest—a bottomless abyss of love.
The Apostle Paul writes, “And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God” (Eph. 3:18-19 NLT).
God is beyond the comprehension of man. No person is capable of providing a definition or description of God.
