The Lord has been stirring something around in my heart—and that is to believe for more!

Believe for more of what? More miracles, more healings, more finances, more meaningful times with our husbands, more memorable times with our children, more valuable friendships, more understanding of God's Word, more time for ourselves, more of whatever it is you need from the Lord!

God wants us to ask for more, because more is what He wants you to have. And not just for you—He wants more for your family! That's what it says in Psalm 115:14 KJV, "The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children."

But we see in this next verse that we need to ask for more! Matthew 7:11 NIV says, "If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!"

He wants to give you better gifts, more gifts than you could ever give your own children that you love so much. And He says He'll give more to the ones who ask him!

It helps to understand just what more means! It means: that which exceeds or surpasses in any way what it is compared with; greater; superior; increased in quantity, degree, and quality.

So when it comes to your marriage, He wants to do more in your marriage! He wants every aspect of your relationship with your husband to be greater, superior, increased in degree and quality.

Maybe it's greater amounts of time together you want more of, maybe it's an increase in the quality of your communication you want more of, or maybe it's superior sex you want more of! (Then again, if you have little kids, maybe it's superior sleep you want more of!)

How about more in your relationships with your children? Do you have need of more wisdom to know how to train your 2-year-old, or to channel your 8-year-old son's energy, or how to help your preteen daughter through her hormonal challenges, or how to teach your teenage son to be more responsible?

Has He already come through for you in the past? Did He give you the wisdom you needed then / Well, He wants to do it again and He wants to give you more wisdom that exceeds or surpasses the wisdom He gave you before!

What about more in the areas of finances? He wants to do more than enough in your finances! Psalm 37:18-19 NLT says, "Day by day the Lord takes care of the innocent...They will survive through hard times; even in famine they will have MORE than enough."

And when it comes to miracles (things that only God can do!), God wants to do more! He wants to do miracles that exceed or surpass in any way what He did the last time-miracles that are greater, superior, increased in quantity, degree and quality.

The Psalmist David said in Psalm 90:16 NLT, "Let us see your miracles again; let our children see your glory at work." Is that what you want for you, your husband, and your children this year?

Then believe for more!
