Progress begins with Need

2 Corinthians 12:9 “But he answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you, and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So, I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me”

Our progress in the Lord is based on a sense of need. So, it is on this foundation of a growing sense of need that we progress. The moment that we stop growing in dependency on the Lord is the exact moment that we stop maturing spiritually. We can go no further in our walk with the Lord than our sense of need carries us. If you find yourself in desperate need of His life right now, then you are in the very center of Gods will.

John 14:12 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father”

Greater grace is for a day of “greater works”. To create the capacity for that greater grace requires us to be placed in circumstances that overwhelm our natural strength and cause us to cry out for more of Him. When the Lord sees our heart reaction is toward Him, just then His grace flows in a greater measure. A day of fullness is grace without measure. The Holy Ghost is on a mission to bring you into this place of fullness (brokenness). With your invitation He will personalize a cross of circumstance that will reveal your inner most needs and bring them to the surface. As the day of fullness approaches (time is short) the dealings of the Lord in our lives become more intense (off the scale). The Lord is checking the “oil level” in your lamp. If you are a “wise virgin” you will allow all the things you face in the wilderness of your life circumstance to “drive you” into that secret place of intimacy and dependency on Him. Lean on Him as never before beloved. Make “one on one” time while there is time to fill your lamp with oil (communion with the Bridegroom). It will light your path out of the wilderness and is the only safe place for the storms that approach.

Song of Solomon 8:5 “Who is this that is coming up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved?”
