Have you ever felt the sense of boredom in your walk with God as a Child of God. Ever been tired of reading the scriptures and learning more of God’s word? Perhaps you’ve come to that point in your life where you are satisfied with all that you’ve found out in your relationship with God. Then this post is for you. Maybe you are not bored or tired, then this post will encourage you, as I was after I heard them while studying my daily devotional this morning.
Some Christians have reached the point where their lives have become boring and they’re wondering, “What more is there in God?” They’ve become so used to the worship and other activities in church; even God’s Word has become common to them; what a sad situation to be in!
What they haven’t understood is that it’s not just about the activities that take place in church; it’s about the glory that comes out of those activities. When you understand what comes out from the Spirit, you’ll never be bored; you’d never ask, “What’s more?” People become tired or uninspired by the things of God because they’re carnally minded (they are moved by their five senses, their feelings get the best of them); just like the children of Israel that got fed up with the manna that was coming out of heaven, and started clamouring for meat!
Walking with the Lord is a journey of endless glory; there’s always more to desire and enjoy in Him. The more He reveals Himself to you, the more hungry you are for Him. Imagine Moses: after he had walked with the Lord for so long, and the Lord had done so many wonderful things in his presence and through him, he still wanted more. He said, “Lord, show me your glory” (Exodus 33:18); because he knew there was more.
Our God is so great; there’s no end to the greatness and awesomeness of His Majesty. Keep growing in the things of the Spirit; keep learning the Word, with an unquenchable desire to know Him more and have His glory revealed in your life. Remember, if you seek Him, you’d find Him (Matthew 7:7); if you hunger and thirst for His righteousness, you’ll be filled (Matthew 5:6).
Some of us might be asking, how do I stay focused? How do I not get tired? The truth is, if you are trully subject to the Spirit of God, you’ll never be tired or feel exhausted, for the Love of God just makes you want more. There’s this song by our very own Minister Sinach, (I’ll leave the URL bellow), it tells the story of this post.
And in the words of one of my dear readers,
I reached that point in my Christian walk. The thing is to keep striving, keep praying and keep reaching to God. The feeling in you may be for you to have a change in direction, growth or for you to move in a certain way. I don’t think it is necessarily a bad feeling, it’s your response to it that matters,
“Even if you are subject to the will of God and under the spirit you can still get tired especially if you are not functioning in a role God has prepared for you , it’s your response to it that matters and not giving up on God.. I have seen people grow by reevaluating their role in church when responding to this “tired/bored” routine. .The truth is if you seek God truly, He will lead you to where you are supposed to be in ministry , in church, in relationships and you will flourish. It’s like finding your place in a puzzle. Growth cannot come unless there is change and I know that responding to that restless feeling with direction from God can beneficial. You become cynical and jaded if you continue without responding by seeking God for direction”
So my fellow Love and Reality readers, THERE’S MORE IN GOD and in this coming year, decide for yourself that you want more of Him, and surely you’ll never get enough.
You can study more from this scriptures: Ecclesiastes 3:11; 1 Corinthians 2:11
Here’s a Prayer for you:
I thank you for granting me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of you. I’m increasing more and more in knowledge and in judgment, able to discern and function at all times in the centre of your will, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
