The Overflowing Heart

The Overflowing Heart…

When we were children, we had to learn how to pour water into a cup. One of the things we had to learn was to stop pouring when the glass was full.

The Lord pours His Spirit not into a cup, but into your heart. And He wants you to overflow. Too many believers get filled up with God to a certain point, and then they stop seeking Him. They stop receiving, stop growing, and they stop being open.

Could that be you? God never wills to stop pouring or for you to stop receiving. Your life is not a cup that has to stop receiving. God wants you to keep receiving, and then to receive even more.

You don’t want a cup to overflow. But the spirit must overflow. The way to overflow is to never stop receiving and to never stop seeking more. So never tell God! ‘Stop!’ Let it pour, let it flow, and let it overflow. For hearts, unlike cups, are only full when they overflow.

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7

Start over again with learning all there is about God today, but this time let Him fill you to overflowing.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
