Topic: Psalm 42:6,7
Psalm 42:6,7 (NKJ) O my God, my soul is cast down within me; Therefore I will remember You from the land of the Jordan, And from the heights of Hermon, From the Hill Mizar.7 Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and billows have gone over me.
O my God, my inner man is weakened against me. As a result, I will bring You to my mind from the place of humility and dying to 'self'; I am promoted by 'dying to self' when I humble myself before You.
The distraction and stirring up of Your Spirit's supply draws me to be distracted and stirred up by Your Spirit's supply, desiring more. Your Spirit is channeled into me and brings my spirit to attention with it's loud 'sound'. You're completeing me by breaking 'self' into pieces and by Your chastisement. You cause me to change. Your 'change' causes me to advance in my inner man, advancing me to more completion.
What is cool about God's Spirit is that the more you have, the more you want. The more He is channeled into my spirit, the more I 'see' what needs to be cut out of my life and broken up into pieces. These 'pieces' of me that aren't needed in my self, are really in the way of getting more of God's Spirit. Humility is the key. Humbling myself, as if to kneel as slices are taken off of me, makes me 'lighter' in my spirit. Being 'lighter' causes me to be 'changed'. When I am changed, then I can advance into the next stage of spirituality, MORE. It's uncomfortable to change, but it's always an adventure! And always for the good of God. Nothing can be better than a lighter, changed and adventurous spirit. It's the next step to being completely spirit...that, which won't happen, until after the second coming of Jesus. Then, and only then, can I have a new spiritual body and be complete. I'm just taking one step at a time in THIS life.
Thank You, Lord, for cutting the un-needed pieces out of my life. I want YOUR change and YOUR spiritual advancement in my life. I desire MORE, Father. The more You give, the more I long for. Thank You, that You are advancing me. Teach me how to be humble...for that is the key to MORE!
