When you see “God” written anywhere, murmured in a prayer, what is it that you think?
Thanks for joining us for Monday’s Message with Abigail Rice and Trench Classes United. Today’s message is a thought-provoking one that reminds us of the Sovereignty, grace and love in the Names of God.
He must become greater and greater
and I must become less and less
Or, perhaps He must increase,
But I must decrease
Are the words you are more familiar with
Tattooed on arms
Bumper stickered on cars
But do we truly know what the real meaning is?
Are we really willing to let go of this flesh?
These earthly desires that lurk in our beds
Sit on our nightstands
Drive around in our cars
Wherever you go
There they are
and I question how we have gotten this far?
and it’s because chance after chance He has given us
With His gracious heart
And unrelenting forgiveness
His love is SO big
I don’t think we could ever grasp it
Or come to realize that
Our God is not just a name we say when we pray
Someone we cry out to when things don’t happen to go our way
No, our God is a living breathing, emotional being
That is crying out to you me
Whispering, Daughter, come back to me
I have given you this gift of eternity
And so much more if only you could see
and believe that I desire nothing more than your company
Yet, we move on with our cute devotionals and pretty songs
When our hearts are missing what He has envisioned all along
A place where we are free
A place our fleshly eyes cannot see
Because we are blinded by the desires of this earthly increase
To gain only monetary, momentary things
Because we are afraid of the hard work it takes
To go through that dark tunnel
and be stripped of everything
Not knowing that on the other side
On the other side there is a small glimmer of light
Because He has been preparing the way
If only you would let Him wash away the shame
Expose the ego
and disrobe your pride
So that you can begin to truly let your light shine
and ask yourself what does decreasing mean to my life?
That, my friend, is only a question your soul can know
and the answer lies within the moments you let The Spirit grow…
“He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.”
