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
The reasons why we become Christians today seem to be shifting away from having personal contact with our Father. Nowadays we seem to be satisfied to be convinced of things in our minds and content with changes others can see on the outside. This is far from what the Bible, the prophets, and Christ have offered unto us. We are to come to a Presence! We are called to meet and be blown away with what we experience of the Almighty God! We are called to be filled to overflowing with the Holy Spirit, His power, hope, joy, and peace! Is that the reality we see in our day?
If we seek something less, then only the lesser fillings will be ours. If we seek the flooding, the overwhelming, and the Presence of God with us and in us, then that is what we can have! The promises are there! Other´s have gone before us! The challenge is made and the offer stands! Who will be willing to press forward to receive their Prize? Who would have the Son of God? Who wants to be undone by the Holy Spirit flowing and pouring out through us? Shall we seek the Lord with the urgency and sincerity that will gain us what we will never be able to contain? Shall we ask that God shows Himself to us and fills us with His endlessness now?
We have been buying something less than You! Forgive us and set us hard after You today! Let us seek nothing less than being filled to overflowing with Your Presence we pray!
