You Can Have As Much Of Jesus As You Want

This Post is taken from a devotion by Gary Wilkerson…

“Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst…”

John 4:15

Read John 4:5-30

My father, David Wilkerson, taught me a lesson when I was a little boy, and I believe it is the most important lesson I have ever learned, “Gary, “ he said, “ you can have as much of Jesus as you want.”

Every one of you reading this article can have as much of Jesus as you want! God does not just randomly say, “I’m picking you and not you.”

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied (filled)”

Matt. 4:6 ESV. This verse is speaking of the man or woman who says, “I want all that Jesus has to offer. I am going to be ravenous in my spiritual hunger to get everything He has to give.”

The Bible says that God is looking for men and women whose hearts are completely His that He might show Himself strong. “For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He might strongly support those whose hearts are completely His.” 2 Chron 16:9 NAS

God does not want 10 % or 75% of His church to be consecrated, to live a set-apart, sacred life. He wants 100% of His body, His believers, to be sold out wholeheartedly.

It is not God who is holding back the anointing of His Spirit, it is our lack of response to what He is pouring out. God has rent the heavens and come down and manifest His Holy Spirit in these last days. The man or woman who responds to what God is willing to give will rise up and say, “In this last hour I choose to be filled with God’s Spirit. I choose to live a consecrated life. I will not be dissuaded from this; I will not be held back. Nothing can keep me form the destiny that God has for me of being on fire for Him, totally filled with His Spirit.”
