We need the grace to realize that the 'much' we possess is truly little compared to what we have (or could have) in God.
May He awaken a hunger in all of our hearts.
So true, so true my brother. I'm broken by the words of the great apostle, Dr. Tozer. Maybe i should change that last point from "No sense of need", to "No sense of need for God." Hebrews 11 (i think it is) speaks of those saints who overcame by faith, "having nothing, yet possessing all things."
I think we should read [i]Hebrews 11[/i] again and again![i]24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, [b]refused[/b] to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;25 [b]Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;[/b]26 Esteeming the reproach of [b]Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt:[/b] for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.[/i]Here is other encouraging thread - [url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=7760&forum=26]5 minutes in heaven...?[/url]
Brother Lawrence said it like this: [i]"For many years I was bothered by the thought that I was a failure at prayer. Then one day I realized I would always be a failure at prayer; and I've gotten along much better ever since."[/i]
I just discovered through [url=http://www.navpress.com/Magazines/Pray/?aCode=NL100706]PRAY! Magazine [/url]an awesome prayer resourse...[url=http://www.nupsa.org.za/prayer.htm]Jerico Walls Prayer Network[/url]! They have some very informative prayer teachings-real HOW-TO stuff that might be of interest to y'all.
I think sometimes, that more you have less you pray. It is difficult to pray in society where you have everything. And you are receiving everything as given. Where is the life of walking by faith.
He said that there were no lukewarm christians in that time, you must be hot or you simply can not be disciple, because if you want to be follower of Jesus it is crystal clear to you that this will cost your life, you have signed death to the earthly pleasures. You know that Jesus is all for you and everything else even your life here on earth can't be compared with the glory that is coming.
