Ask for More…

Here’s a thought…
Can you have too much JOY…
Can you have too much LOVE…
Can you have too much PEACE…
Can you have too much FAITH…
Or goodness, or kindness, or gentleness, or longsuffering, or self-control (Galatians 5:22-23)
Think about this for a moment…the Psalmist said, “My cup runs over…” (Psalm 23:5)
God is a God who says, “I am more than enough…” (2 Corinthians 9:8)
Jesus fed five thousand, with five barley loaves and two fish, all were full, there was more, left over… John 6:13
Jesus said, “I came that you would have life and have life more abundant…” (John 10:10)
Paul said, “You are more than a conqueror in Christ…” (Romans 8:37)
God said, “I will pour you out a blessing that there is not room to store it…” (Malachi 3:10)
Jesus said, “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full …” (John 15:11)
He said, “I leave you My peace, not like the world’s peace…” (John 14:27)
He gives More, not Less….Because when he gives us More it overflows onto others…
It is a continuous flow…He told the woman at the well, “if you drink of the water that I give you, you will never thirst again…” Why? Because it never runs dry…
My/Your cup overflows…just like the little sheep that is fed by the Good Shepherd…
It’s OK to have More of Him….It is not selfish or greedy or envious to want more of Him…
“Oh taste and see that the Lord is good,” (Psalm 34:8)
“He satisfies your mouth with good things…”(Psalm 103:5)
Can you have TOO MUCH LOVE? Can you have TOO MUCH JESUS…?
No…
That’s like saying can you have too much air to breathe…
His love, joy, peace, doesn’t get stale or stagnant, it doesn’t get used up, it doesn’t get old or moldy, it is fresh and good, it satisfies, it is continuously overflowing…and He so longs to give you more…just ask, your cup will overflow…
Imagine too much JOY….Your soul is so happy that there is no room to be sad, or discouraged, or depressed or lonely or afraid….You are so full of Joy that you break out into singing and dancing and living and giving and helping…because this JOY, is the Lord’s JOY, and His Joy, is your strength… (Psalm 28:7)
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23New King James Version (NKJV)
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. Psalm 28:7 New International Version (NIV)
Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10 New International Version (NIV) 
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Psalm 23:5 New International Version (NIV)
And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8 New International Version (NIV)
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10: 10 New King James Version (NKJV)
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Romans 8:37 New King James Version (NKJV) 
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,” says the Lord Almighty. Malachi 3:10-11 New International Version (NIV)
“These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. John 15:11 New King James Version (NKJ) 
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27 New International Version (NIV)
Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. Psalm 34:8 New International Version (NIV)
Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:4-5 New King James Version (NKJV)

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often. Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
