How bad do you want God?
This has been on my heart for a while. It is almost 3am as I type this. I was actually in bed trying to sleep but could not. As usual I knew God had something for me to do. So here it is. I was ministering to a lady a few months ago, and she was astounded by the word of knowledge and revelation that God gave me for her. She then said,”I want to be able to do what you do, how do you do it?” I told her it was all God, not me. This is the truth. However, I didn’t give the full truth. How much do you want it?
As long as you are satisfied with being a “normal” Christian in the pews, you will not fully experience what God has in store for us all. I know this because I was for a long time, a “normal” Christian until something was stirred inside of me. Normal was no longer enough for me. Brothers and sisters, God serves a buffet, but he will not push everything onto your plate. It is up to you to step up according to your appetite. How hungry are you for God? How much do you want to walk in his fullness? You alone know what is in your heart, but your actions will tell us what is in your heart.
The bible says ,”Ask and it shall be given to you, pressed down and shaken together and running over!” Though God freely gives, everything will come at a cost. Don’t envy anyone’s anointing or gifts, unless you know what it has cost them. It has cost some sleep, some marriages, family, some money and some even their lives. However whatever you lose in Christ is a gain, when you lose family Christ is your family. When you lose money, Christ is your all.
Understand this; when Elijah’s time on earth was almost at an end he passed his mantle and anointing to Elisha. The great Elijah’s anointing was upon him. The Elijah who had slain Baal’s prophets, the one the whole land was speaking about. Elisha understood, just how much more he wanted it!! Thus he refused to settle for that anointing, he wanted more of God. It cost him time, sleep and I more, just to make sure he saw Elijah depart so he could get his double portion.
Whatever you really want is shown by the effort you put into it. If Sunday is the only time you seek God, how bad do you want God? Those who spend enough time pursuing him, and walking with him are the ones who experience these things. Read his word more, pray more.
I challenge you today, how much do you want God? How much do you want to see the miraculous? These signs follow all who believe, so believe. By the measure of your faith, you will witness and be a part of these things. How bad do you want God?
God bless you. Thank you Lord for this beautiful message. Touch hearts and raise champions through it. We ask this in Jesus’s name. Amen.
