BACKSTORY

During a time of immense stress, I found myself begging God to hear me, to be with me, even to love me. Yes, begging God, the One who created me and everyone else, to take care of me. Begging as if He were some kind of sick being that looked at me and said “Beg me a little more. You’re almost there but not quite.”  Have you ever thought that you had to beg God? 

Jesus says in John 16:23-24 (MSG) “This is what I want you to do. Ask the Father for whatever is in keeping with the things I’ve revealed to you. Ask in my name, according to my will, and He’ll most certainly give it to you. Your joy will be a river overflowing its banks”. What a promise! 

To know His will, we must spend time with Him, learn more about Him through His word. We realize in living this way, our selfish desires become less and less and what He wants becomes more of our focus. 

Sometimes God say “yep, there you go, there’s your answer” and other times it takes a while because there are spiritual battles. Sometimes we need to pray through something, standing against the enemy in Jesus' name. That may take a while, sometimes a long while. But that is not begging. 

“This Much I Know” is my personal declaration and prayer whenever I catch myself reverting back to begging. I hope it will be yours as well!

LYRICS

This much I know 
I don’t have to beg You to talk to me 
This much I know
I don’t have beg You to walk with me
This much I know
I don’t have beg You again and again to lead me Lord
I just need to listen when You speak to me         

Give me the eyes to see that
You’re walking with me
I give You my life as You lead me
Give me the ears to hear that
You’re talking with me
I give You my life as You lead me O my Lord     

This much I know
I don’t have to beg You to teach me
Give me patience to wait for You
As You answer me
This much I know
I don’t have to beg You
Again and again to show Your love
Just let me look through Your eyes    

Give me the eyes to see that 
You’re walking with me 
I give You my life as You lead me 
Give me the ears to hear that 
You’re talking with me 
I give You my life as You lead me O my Lord            

(Bridge) 

Such a gift You’ve given me!
By Your grace I am set free
I’m amazed, I stand in awe
Of the great creator, the most high God! 
The most high God! 

Give me the eyes to see that
You’re walking with me
I give You my life as You lead me
Give me the ears to hear that
You’re talking with me
I give You my life as You lead me 

Give me the eyes to see that
You’re walking with me
I give You my life as You lead me
Give me the ears to hear that
You’re talking with me
I give You my life as You lead me O my Lord
