The Impoverished Ministry of Jesus

My Utmost His Highest

"Where then do You get that living water?’" (John 4:11)

Have you been limiting, or impoverishing, the ministry of Jesus to the point that He is unable to work in your life? . . . We limit the Holy One of Israel by remembering only what we have allowed Him to do for us in the past. . . The thing that approaches the very limits of His power is the very thing we as disciples of Jesus ought to believe He will do. We impoverish and weaken His ministry in us the moment we forget He is almighty. The impoverishment is in us, not in Him.
