Ask God For More
When I woke up a few days ago the song “More More More” by Joann Rosario was on my mind. I hadn’t heard it in years but a text from a close friend that read “ask God for more” triggered the song. When I read her text, I have to admit that I didn’t think more was a possibility. I thought to myself “I already have a lot going on right now. I don’t think I can handle anymore of anything right now.” Between writing opportunities, launching a law firm, volunteering and working out each day, the concept of more just seemed like too much to handle. It also felt a little greedy to request more.
Part of the lyrics to the song say “I need more more more, Jesus more of you…I need so much more, Jesus more of you. When I have been all used up fill me like an empty cup. And when it seems I have had enough, I still need more of you.”
As I sung the words, I realized that if there was ever a person to request more of, and more from, that person was God. He is an endless supply of more. He will always have more of everything that we need; and if we ask for more, he’ll never deny us.
Like me, sometimes we’re afraid or hesitant to ask God for more because we think of him as a person with limited resources but he is not. He is unlike anyone in this world and he is always full of more. He is full of more grace, love, peace, mercy, justice, finances, favor and restoration than we’ll ever know. All we have to do is ask for it. We don’t have to worry about not being able to handle the increase because his plans are for good and not evil (Jeremiah 29:11). God’s plans are to bless you abundantly and to fill you until the point of overflow so that you can be a blessing to someone else.
If you were at a restaurant and they offered unlimited refills on your favorite soda or juice, you wouldn’t hesitate to request more. God is the same way. He has made more available to us. He has offered more to us. He has promised more to us. Most of all, he has promised to be more to us than anyone else in this world. He has an unlimited supply of more and all we have to do is ask for it.
Today, will you ask for more? He promises to do exceedingly and abundantly beyond above all we could ever ask or think. (Ephesians 3:20). Do you know how powerful that is? Have you ever declared that scripture over your goals, dreams or prayers? If not, it’s not too late to begin doing that.
Ask God for more. You haven’t seen your best or most blessed day yet. There is still more in store for you. Ask for it today and expect to see it each day that you wake up.
Be encouraged to believe God for more.
Scripture: “May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope” (Romans 15:13).
Prayer: God you know the desires of my heart and the goals that I have set. Today, I am asking you for more. I am asking that you bless my goals and prayers in a way that is exceedingly and abundantly beyond all that I can ask or imagine. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
