Hear More

Ok, it’s time for a message.  Why don’t we hear more?The scripture says to us in 2 Timothy 1:12 “For I know Whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day”.  Many of us will never have changed lives because we won’t give up any of what the world teaches us so we can make room for what the Lord wants to teach us.  In this scripture, Paul is telling Timothy that he was happy to give up some things he had so he could have some things he didn’t have.  What about you?  Often times the reasons we cannot know more or do more or have more or change more is because the world screams at us that we must hold onto more of what we have already.  It is unnatural for most of us to want to eat when our stomachs are full from the meal we had an hour ago.  What we eat of the world limits what more we can eat and we are unwilling to make room for more until what we ate has all been consumed and digested.  But with believers in the Lord, we know that our tanks are not ever full but rather we allow things to pass through our lives so that we can always have room to have more of what God wants to give us.  The way to make this room in your life is to be willing to give up on some things the world does each day so you make room to have more of God.  You have an unlimited capacity to know and grow in the things of God but you limit your capacity by filling your life with what you have known and grown to be in the world.  Can you be persuaded to love who others say don’t deserve love; can you be persuaded to give grace where  people in the world say punish; can you be persuaded to say I am wrong when the world says you are right; can you be persuaded to stay where you are when the world says it is right for you to move on to something new.  I am persuaded we don’t know more because our lives are too full of world views that keeps us feeling full.  God wants you to be hungry for more when you are full; can He persuade you to believe that?  And can He persuade you to change some ways so He can make some ways for you?  You have an infinite capacity to have with the Lord when you allow Him to punch a hole in your tank so your world view can be pushed out to make room for the power and favor of the infinite presence of His view.  If you have ears, hear this.  Live a Delivered Life.  Love you
