There Is More

Have you ever come to a point in your life where you said to yourself, “There has to be more?” There’s an ache and a longing inside you that you can’t quite put into words?

But what is the “more” that you long for? It can’t be just more of the same. It can’t be just more stuff, more money, or more self fulfillment. It can’t be just doing more of what you have been doing. I believe it can only come through knowing God more and discovering more of His plan and purpose in your life. I believe that we don’t have it in us to grab hold of the “more.” It has to come by and through Him. It’s Him. It’s all about Him.

That’s why, in Ephesians 3, the Apostle Paul talks about this marvelous grace of God and then offers up this prayer.

14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

The good news is that there is more! In fact “immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.” Now that really is more.

What is this “more?” It is the power and presence of God’s Holy Spirit in you. “More” is a love so great that you can’t fathom it… unless He enables you. “More” means being filled with God Himself. “More” is God filling you up because only He can fill you up. He is the “more.”

There is more… so much more, because He is always more! And God is eager that you have more of Him. He hears your heart’s cry for more and He is ready to answer that cry. He sees more in you than you see yourself. He has greater dreams for you that you would ever have for yourself.

I believe with all my heart that 2019 is the year when God is going to pour out His grace and favor on Singing Oaks… more than He ever has before. I believe with all my heart that this is the year where we will experience the reality that there is more!
