Unlimited: God Will Fill You To Overflowing
Nov 27, 2016 1024
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13, NIV).
Did you know that the universe is 99.999% empty space? And that means our bodies as well. That means that if you took away all of the space between the atoms in our bodies, the whole human race would take up the space of a sugar cube. That’s because our bodies are 99.999% empty space.
I’m sure that we have all felt empty at some stage or another, and now you know why!
It makes you wonder what there is about people to love. God knows the answer, literally, because He tells us through the Bible that we are deeply, desperately, and continuously loved.
If death were the end of it all, then that’s all we are – just empty space. But death isn’t the end! The Bible says that in God’s
“great mercy, He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” – 1 Peter 1:3.
Because Jesus has overcome death, when you believe in Him, He fills you with new life that’s full of joy and hope and purpose. He fills you with eternity.
When you trust in Him, God fills you to overflowing, through the Holy Spirit, with joy and peace. God fills all your empty spaces and turns them into joy. He fills you with eternity. – Eliezer Gonzalez
Reflection: Think of an area in your life that you need God to fill – some part of you that is still empty and dark. Go somewhere that inspires you with its natural beauty, sit down, and take in all the goodness of God through your senses. Close your eyes, and ask God to send the Spirit of Christ to fill that part of you that needs God’s peace and joy.
