God will always honor our hunger for more. When we give expression to our desire for a greater reality in Him and we do this with a humble and honest heart then He will speak truth to our measure and a greater revelation of His glory will result. This is the secret of those that are on the endless path to knowing Him. It is a fountain of joy to experience the grace and truth of His glory. Grace is free but in Gods economy we will always pay a price for the truth. It is the marriage of grace and truth that produces an ever increasing glory
James 4:6 (ESV) “But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
Grace is the divine ability to climb that next step in God.
The greater measure of truth is only visible as we rise to the next level.
There is always room to grow in the Lord. No matter how well you hear from the Lord you can always hear better. As long as we are in our natural bodies there is always the potential and need to be adjusted to the mind of Christ.
A soft heart allows this process to continue. A hard heart becomes a platform for pride that stops the flow of grace. A soft heart that is placed in His hands will allow Christ to be formed in you in both measure and stature. Only pride stops grace and only humility releases pride and restores the flow of grace.
Psalm 133:1 “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity “
The greatest expression of Gods glory is about to take place. The next move of God will be a move without end as He begins to move in His body (Bride) who have become one.
We as individuals are a unique expression of Him. It is only when we move as a body together in harmony and love that He is truly seen in the earth.
Our commitment to humble ourselves and become servants to this higher purpose will be tested by every device of the enemy. This beautiful Bride that was betrothed in secret is nearing the completion of her preparation. She is about to be visited by the Bridegroom who will unveil her to the world. No one knows the hour He will come. Our lamps must be full of the oil of the grace of His life.
We must completely lose our identity to be chosen as His companion for all eternity. The price of this truth will cost us everything for it is a pearl of “Great Price.”
