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 15:13For those baby boomers reading this you can probably remember when your parents got fuel at a gas station that is was fully manned by attendants who came to fill up your car, check your oil, and wash your windshield. Those were the days. Now of course it is all do it yourself often to the point that people forget to check their oil and burn out their engines.In our walk with the Lord each day we can go to the 'filling station' and get filled up with the love of Christ for power to get through our day ahead. This 'filling station' is of course the word of God so we can strengthen ourselves for any battles that may be coming our way. We can be filled up and nourished on the words in the Bible and it is much more effective than seeing us through our day than a steady diet of the morning news.
Are you making time in your day to go to God's 'filling station'?PRAYER: I want to wake up each day and have my heart filled to overflowing with delight in you and your words. Help me to have discipline to read my Bible and not get caught up watching television news and the all of a sudden have no time left. In Jesus' name. Amen.
