Don't Be Satisfied

   Why do you think you've already arrived?  Why do you think praying a prayer and getting saved is all there is? Why do think this is as good as it gets?
   God has so much more for you!  He wants to give you freedom and relieve you of your burdens.  He was to give joy unspeakable and peace unthinkable.  He wants to give you power.  He wants to give you more and more of His Spirit everyday.  He wants to give you wonderful things - beyond what you could ever ask or even imagine.
   God wants to be in fellowship with you.  He wants you to know Him.  He wants you to spend time with Him.  He wants you to fall deep, deep, deep in love with Him.
   So stop running around in circles, moving but never getting anywhere.  Stop being ok with that.  Stop being complacent.  Stop spinning your wheels, caught up in old habits, old lies, old you.
   Go after Him!  Run.  Chase.  Get so excited that you trip over your own feet on the way to Him.  Don't stop until you've reached the finish line.  Don't stop until you're there, dancing with Jesus on streets of gold. 
   Want Him.  Desire Him.  Need Him.  And don't ever be satisfied.

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
-James 4:8
