Why Settle?

“Increase my capacity to receive more” [Baba, Jonathan Nelson]

Increase my capacity to receive more. Increase my ability to receive more of what you have for me. I will not settle for mediocre. I will not settle for just ‘good enough’. Because Your thoughts towards me are of good and not of evil, I am confident that You do not just want me to have ‘good enough’.

In You, You desire for me to have ‘MORE THAN ENOUGH’

You want me to be so saturated in You and all that You are; even to the overwhelming. So I submit myself for You to work on, and for You to work in. I submit myself to You, so that You can increase my capacity to receive more; so that You can do more in me, and through me.

All to Jesus, I surrender completely

Psalm 23 says: “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff. They comfort me.You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

The depth to which you go with God, is the depth to which you allow Him to fill you.
