The more I lower myself the more God’s power flows

The more I discern
The glory of the Lord
The less my self-concern
And the more I learn
To trust Him.

The more I deny
To follow
The more I
Learn to rely
On Him daily.

The more
I lower
The more
God’s power
Can flow.

The more I hunger
To know God better
The more He becomes
My Pacesetter.

The more I connect
With Jesus
The more I detect
My great need
For Him.

The more I surrender
And let God
Make my heart tender
The more His splendor
Shines in me.

The more I forgive
The more joy
I have
In the way
That I live.

The more I’m willing
To humble myself
The more thrilling
It is to follow Jesus.

The more I let Jesus
Be my peace
The more I let
My striving cease.

The more I bless
My enemy
The less bitterness
Can hinder me.

The more I decrease
The more Jesus
Can increase
In me.

The more I pray
And lay down my way
For God’s way
The brighter my day.

The more I’m kind
The more kindness
That I find
Returned to me.

The more I take
The low place
The more
I experience
God’s grace.

The more I read
The Bible
The more
I feel it bridle
My idol
Of self.

The more I
Ignore me
The clearer
I see.

The deeper I wade
Into the glory of God
The more my desires fade
In the healing shade
Of His love.

God loves you. Are you basking in His love, ignoring His love, or avoiding His love? To worship is to actively adore and surrender to the living Jesus.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
