Today we take time to reflect on a precious verse and a beautiful song. We call it Word & Worship.
OUR WORD for TODAY:
God must increase, and I must decrease. More of Him and less of me.
“As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God.” Psalms 42:1 NLT
Our spirit desires to go deeper with the Father. It was made to crave intimacy with Him. However, so often of the time, we allow the desires of our body and soul to distract us from the desires of our spirit. Because God gave us the beautiful gift of free will, we have to choose to discipline ourselves so that our spirit can lead us. We must choose to quiet the demands and desires of our flesh and tune into the those of our spirit, longing to be in unity with God.
And it’s there, after we’ve silenced the distractions that otherwise are beckoning our attention, that we realize just how desperate we are for the Father. And meeting Him there at the threshold isn’t enough to satisfy the longing in our heart. We want more; we need more. Our spirit longs to be consumed by His, so that anything in us that is not of Him, will be vanquished and only He remains.
OUR WORSHIP for TODAY: More – Red Rocks Worship
There is no better song than this, to express our desire for God; for Him above all else. Allow the lyrics to stir your spirit as you worship; letting them become the cry of your heart. We pray it blesses you.
I just want more, I just want more
More of You God, more of You
I pour out all I have and lay down all I am
I’m making room for You
Lord, I’m ready
To open up my heart, to receive not in part
But the fullness of who You are
Lord, I’m ready
