Deeper Life

There is so much more to experience in our relationship with God. Most of us have barely scratched the surface of the richness of relationship possible with Christ and from which can then flow a greater manifestation of His power to minister His hope to hurting humanity. What degree of intimacy do I have with the King of kings? He wants a much closer involvement in our lives so He can give us more of Himself. Refuse to settle for less than is your right as His child.

By being in vital connection to Him, and obeying His Word we will come into a greater place of intimacy, “You are my friends if you do what I command” (Jn 15:4,5,14).  Do you desire to have continual communion with the Lord, with a divine life-enriching flow into your life and then gushing out to bless hurting humanity (Ps 1:1-3; Jn 7:38). As we give out from the spiritual store within we will receive more, enabling us to sow and reap in increasing measure.  

This deeper life is the result of a fully committed life and undivided heart (Ps 34:4-7, 86:11).

The natural mind (of the unsaved) doesn’t comprehend any of the blessings reserved for them in Heaven. However, the Holy Spirit searches out all things, even the deep things of God and makes them known to believers. As we gain an understanding of what our rightful inheritance is in Christ, we can aim for it (Ps 119:18; Jn 16:12-15; 1 Cor 2:9-12; Eph 1:18-22). There are many glorious riches in Christ that are available for us, if we search for them and pay the price to have them (Eph 3:14-21; Col 1:9-12).

Jesus said, “Satan comes only to steal, kill and destroy; I have come that you may have life to the full” (Jn 10:10). Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil so we may experience the immense love and blessings of knowing Him (1 Jn 3:8). The closer our walk with the Lord, the more sensitive we will be to His voice and the Holy Spirit’s

conviction of things that are not right in our lives. What once seemed to be OK, He will now draw to our notice to refine our spiritual character, so we walk in ever-closer relationship and spiritual freedom with more effectiveness for Him. Why be content to splash in the puddles when God wants you to swim in the ocean of His love? Instead of eating only crumbs that fall from the Masters table, feast on the abundance of life in Christ, not just for your own benefit but so you can share Him with others.
