Lord I Need You
My vocabulary is too limited and my ability to express my desperation for Jesus falls so short of the passion that burns within my soul. All I can say is...LORD I NEED YOU! It's the cry of my heart! There's absolutely nothing I can accomplish outside of Him. My righteousness... filthy rags... peace...unattainable outside of my relationship with Christ...joy... is that even possible without Him?
I don't know about you, but I'm truly desperate to go deeper into His presence. I desire to understand and experience the intricate facets of His character and to be transformed in His presence...becoming a reflection of His glory and an instrument of His love. I know me! I know that without Jesus I'm really quite pitiful, but He sees beyond the limitations of our flesh into the vessel He desires for us to become. I'm so grateful that He takes our weak, frightened and broken pieces and continually shapes us into something of beauty and value. Not because it's deserved but simply because of His mercy and love. There is no limit to the depths... but growth, effectiveness, anointing and relationship only comes to the degree that we are willing to make time to desperately seek after Him! So what does that mean? Spend more time studying His Word, praying, worshiping and tarrying in His presence! Simply put... Hang out with Jesus! He desires to spend time with YOU! What in this life can possibly compare to that? LORD, I JUST NEED YOU!!
John 15:5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing."
Psalm 63:1-8 O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land where there is no water. So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory. Because Your loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You. Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips. When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches. Because You have been my help, Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice. My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me.
