Filled To Overflowing

It’s time to expand even more in our lives. It’s time to increase our knowledge of the Word and make it active in our hearts and minds. It’s time to put the Word into action. That’s how we will become filled to overflowing.

You can overflow in a lot of things in this world, but some fillings will only leave you empty, especially if it’s doing things in your own strength. It’s the same if you’re working at dieting, but the more you fill up on the empty calories and junk food, you’ll find yourself at the same place, most often overweight. We should learn from that because our spiritual growth is dependent on what we fill up on.

Recall Joshua and Caleb were the ones to lead Israel into God’s Promised Land. They didn’t listen to the reports of the other 10 spies who only saw the negative things ahead and dissuaded as many as they could. Joshua and Caleb saw God’s promises as theirs, and they followed what He showed them. They had enlarged their hearts and minds. They didn’t let anything stop them because they forged ahead in faith, believing God was faithful and would accomplish what He said.

They received the same vision God had – VICTORY in His Promised land. This is how we need to be today and this year. Don’t move forward in fear. Move forward in faith and expectation of God’s goodness ahead for you. Fill up on Jesus!

Let these encouraging words from Joshua 23 (ESV) give you further strength and faith to move you forward today and this year so you will overflow in His love and grace.

You have seen all that the LORD your God has done to all these nations for your sake, for it is the LORD your God who has fought for you…The LORD your God will push them back before you and drive them out of your sight…And you shall possess their land, just as the LORD your God promised you…Therefore, be very strong to keep and to do all that is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, turning aside from it neither to the right hand nor to the left,  but you shall cling to the LORD your God just as you have done to this day. One man of you puts to flight a thousand, since it is the LORD your God who fights for you, just as he promised you.” You’ll move forward in faith, strength and grace as you allow God’s goodness to overflow in your life.
