Empty Space

Divider

Be filled with the Spirit.

Ephesians 5:18


There is an empty space in every person, yet people don’t always fill it in the right way. Sometimes it’s filled with the desire to increase in riches, yet wealth has limitations and money can never fill the empty space in our hearts. Sometimes people attempt to fill it with drugs or alcohol, yet they can only receive temporary relief without long-term satisfaction. Others try to fill their emptiness with relationships, yet even the good ones can’t fill the space that is meant for the living God to reside.

Every believer in the Lord Jesus Christ can be filled with the Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit fills the empty space that once was in our hearts. Because of Him, we can have peace in the midst of chaos, love when we are hated, and joy when sorrow surrounds us. Through the Spirit of God, we don’t have to search aimlessly for meaning or purpose in this lifetime. He gives us the assurance that we belong to Him, and He will bring us to the place of destiny.

Just because we don’t always feel His presence doesn’t mean He isn’t within us. Our faith is based on the word of God more than how we feel or think. Our feelings are fickle, and our thoughts change faster than the weather. We are walking this Christian journey by faith, believing without having to see everything laid out.

As we go throughout our day, there will be many opportunities to doubt the filling of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Yet if we would stir up faith within our hearts with prayer and Bible reading, we will know Emmanuel, God is with us, for every moment, decision, crisis, or joy.

Prayer

Dear Lord, fill my empty space with Your Holy Spirit. I need You to lead me in the right paths today so that I may live for Your glory. Amen.

In His Service,
