You DO in the overflow; you are STILL as you fill up. – Pastor Maury Davis, Cornerstone Church Nashville These words spoke so clear to me this weekend that I wanted to speak them to you as you start a new week.
How many of us are so busy every week that each day only brings a longer to-do list that we can’t seem to catch up from yesterday? Are we constantly going, going, and going, that we seem to not know if we are coming or going?
God did not create us for busyness; he created us for relationship with Him. He created us for our own good not his. God lacks nothing but rather has everything to give. It was and is the most loving choice that could be made to create mankind in order that He may share with us His perfect love. And, in our busyness, I’m afraid we miss that sometimes.
We are constantly doing. This week focus on being still so that your spiritual-tank can fill up. Set time aside each day this week to just sit still. Sit still and in the quietness let God speak to your spirit.
I loved what a friend of mine had said, “Talk to Him in the car as if he was a passenger driving with you.” It’s that simple. God is so in love with us that He wants all of us. Every day He wants our time, our attention, our devotion and our fellowship so that He can fill us up with His love. And as we are filled up we can begin to DO in the overflow.
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:17-19
