Filled Up

May 11
No, that is not Moonshine, although I do live in the Moonshine capital of the world. We do serve up a great glass of sweet tea around here in these Mason Jars though.
When you look at the glass do you see it as half full or half empty? If we spiritually evaluated ourselves today, how much filling of the Holy Spirit would we sense in our lives?

Look at what God's Word says we are to be filled with in Ephesians 5:17-19

Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord...

Again and again, before the bestowing of the Holy Spirit to individuals, Moses watched the Spirit of God fill people for many different purposes.

Then Moses said to the Israelites, "See, the Lord has chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur of the tribe of Judah, and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze. Exodus 35:30-32

Zechariah 4:6 "Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit," says the Lord Almighty.


God, you are before all things and so powerful. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit today, sending us out into a lost and hurting world as heavenly ambassadors. When we feel discouraged, downtrodden and don't know which way to turn, may we lift our eyes to where our help comes from and trust in Your power to see us through. In Jesus Name, Amen
