Let Him Fill Your Life

“Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives.”
– ‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3:16a‬‬ NLT

Paul tells us that we have to do more than just hear the word of Christ. We have to absorb it, let it live inside us, let it dwell in our hearts and minds. We, as Christians, have to apply His message to every part of our lives. We must take it with us wherever we go.
We take it to work when it’s going to be a long day.
We take it to the grocery store when all the checkout lines are full.
We take it to the doctor when we are worried about the results.
We take it out with us when we have Girl’s Night with our friends.

When you are feeling content, know that that peace comes from God.
When you are full of joy, sing praises to His name.
When you are suffering, fall to your knees and cry out to him.
When you are angry with someone, remember that God loves that person very much and He wants you to treat them with love and respect.

No matter where you are, no matter what you are feeling, keep His word first.

Lord, please help me keep You at the front of my mind at all times. I want You to fill every area of my life, and I want you to be a part of everything I do. Amen

Rivers of Living Water

I “Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’”
– ‭‭John‬ ‭7:38‬‬ NLT

Jesus says that if we believe in Him, trust in Him, and rely on Him, we should come to Him. We should seek Him out and drink of His living water – the Holy Spirit. And that rivers of living water will flow from our hearts. We will be so filled with His spirit and His love that it will pour out of us!

Don’t allow anything to block that flow. Your pride, your pain from the past, your fears and anxieties, your mistakes, your shame… These are some of the things that can slow the stream down to a trickle.
Tear down these dams.
Clear away these obstructions.
Open up the floodgates and let His Holy Spirit flow from you freely, for others to see so that they, too, may come to Him and drink.

Dear God, I come to You to receive Your living water. I want to let it flow from my heart each and every day so that everyone who knows me will know Your love through me. Amen
