The Five Minute Friday prompt this week is … More. You can click at the bottom of this post to get to Kate Motaung’s site and read all that has been shared on this word.
“Whom have I in heaven but you? I desire you more than anything on earth”
(Psalm 73:25, NLT)
More, like in greater quantity or amount, as in increasing with time. The word can also indicate something of greater importance.
The psalmist asks the question, “Whom have I in heaven but you?” fully aware the answer is “No one.” There is no one who can bring help, provision, or healing but God.
The psalmist was also aware he had no greater desire for anything offered on this earth than his desire for God. Everything else paled in comparison.
He was able to say this confidently because he knew this truth beyond a shadow of a doubt:
“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” (verse 26, NIV)
Our God will always be able to provide more of whatever we need. He can never be depleted nor consumed. No matter our need, there will always be more of Him to meet it.
We live in a world able to offer us more than ever before. We become driven to pursue obtaining possessions, status, careers, and more, yet all will leave us feeling empty and unproductive.
Only as we fix our eyes on God are we then able to have the right outlook and trust in God alone.
The answer to all our needsÂ is simply,
“More of You.”
