Needing to Be Filled
Don’t you find life to be a paradox? You know, the very thing we want least is
the most important. Jesus knew this! He talked about it a lot. Has He talked
with you about it yet? You know what I mean – the weak shall be strong – the
first shall be last – the poor shall be rich – the giver shall be the receiver.
God’s world is just the opposite of man’s world
The world, and our flesh, wants power, prestige, money, material things. We
want to be noticed. We want to be in control. We want, we want, we want ….
Then there is God’s way. We are needy. We need to experience love.
Unselfish love. Agape kind of love. Love freely given with no expectation of
return. Christ’s love. That’s it!
We need to be filled with the very love of God. Love offered by His people.
Love delivered by His people. Love which fills the need we all have deep inside.
Agape. Oh, how important. To miss out on agape is to miss out on the kind of
life that God intended for us. Funny thing is – when you receive it, then you
have to give it away. That’s God’s way. Living life with your hand open,
ready to give everything away rather than living with a closed fist,
holding on to “your” stuff.
Take a look at your life’s hand. Is it closed, or is it open?
What is God saying to me through this Word?
In what ways does my life give evidence of this Psalm?
Prayer Focus: Lift up all the people who have lost their thirst and hunger for the presence of God in their day to day life and lifestyle.
May we all "remember when" we have had a greater revelation of the persons of God and His heart for each of us as an individual.
May our eyes and our hearts be opened to recognizing the loving kindness of our Perfect Father, our awesome big Brother and our best friend ever, the Holy Spirit as they participate in our life.
May we recognize the times we were more prepared for the unexpected than we thought (God wasn't surprised or caught off guard), the needs filled before we even knew to ask and the many little blessings of favor we have not earned or deserve that tell us we are loved and that our great Big God cares and is watching over us.
