I had a funny thought run through my mind today. I was thinking about God. I have been thinking how I want more authority in my life. It’s ridiculous to think how little we walk in the authority we have been given. Luke 10 –  power over all the enemy. I enjoy NLT version the best I think.

Why don’t I walk in the authority I’ve been given? Because I don’t know Jesus. I don’t know Spirit or the Father like I should. Immediately Elf ran through my mind like a video clip. There was Elf (Will Ferrell) finding out that Santa was coming to the store. He just starts screaming, “Santa’s coming, Santa’s coming. I know him! I know him!” He was so excited.

I thought, I want to be just like that. Okay, maybe not that obnoxious, but I want that kind of excitement and knowing beyond knowing of who God is. I need it to go down to my spirit, my core.

I’ve made some progress in this area, but the more I think about what Jesus made possible on the cross and resurrection, the more I know about God and actually know God, the more everyday things I get caught up in seem so petty.

All of the ways I use to cope, which do not involved God, seem so pointless. The times I have given to anxiety and what ifs are robbery. John 10:10, NLT ~ “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness.”

I want to be Elf.
