DEVOTION: “God wants you to be filled. God wants you today to be a watered garden, filled with the fragrance of His own heavenly joy, until you know at last that you have touched immensity. The Son of God came for no other purpose than to lift and mold and fashion and remold us until we become conformed to His own mind.” (pg 113)
How empty do you feel today? How empty is your soul? Your heart? Do you ever need to be filled? We all do. We all have days where we just want to say, “stop the world and let me off”. Yet, as we spoke about yesterday, we need to find time to spend with God.
We spoke last week about rivers of living water. These rivers that God provides in us and through us are not just so that we can give that living water to others but also so that we ourselves can be nourished. So that we can be revived and given life to.
When we spend time with God we are renewed. We are given strength and hope. We are given purpose.
Jesus came to lift, mold, fashion and remold us so that we can be conformed to His mind. When we have His mind, His thoughts, His purposes and intentions, things tend to change….our priorities shift.
Today. Are you empty? Maybe. Need a touch of God in your life? Definitely. Take the time to stop, listen. Be filled today with the hope that Jesus provides. Be filled today with the love that Jesus has for you. A love like no other.
Take the time today to just stop. Let the Father give you life.
PRAYER: God, today. Breathe life into these dry bones.
