Help Me Want You Jesus

By: Jenifer Metzger

These three sentences. A mash up of words. They hold power. A life changing power. These are the words to Natalie Grant's new song, More Than Anything.

This song has been on my heart in a powerful way lately. Every time I hear it I feel inspired, encouraged, and convicted. When I need something, what do I want more, the healing, the saving, the giving, the blessing, or the One who provides those things?

Do we long so much for the blessing -the healing, giving, and saving- in our situation that we forget God? We may still go to church, maybe we still read our Bible, maybe we don't even feel like we are forgetting God. But if we are so focused on the needed blessing that it consumes us, we have indeed forgotten God. If God never gives us another blessing, He's already done enough. He's already given us more blessings that we realize. He's saved us from more than we can begin to fathom. He sent His only Son to the cross to die for us. He has done enough.

Friend, think of your situation. If God's answer to your prayer is no, will you be okay with that? Do you want Him more than anything? Listen to Natalie's song as you think about that question.
