Living from an Overflow

Read Jeremiah 9:1 through 10:25; 1 Thessalonians 3:7–13

For people in the blind community, pouring liquid into a glass is particularly challenging. Overflowing the glass is a primary issue. A “Say When” is a device that slips over the top edge of the glass and makes a sound when it is full. This helps prevent overflowing.

In life and ministry, the problem is just the opposite. Too often people function on empty or half full. God intends for His people to live beyond full to overflowing. Paul expresses this desire to his friends in Thessalonica.

May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you (1 Thessalonians 3:12).

Do not be content to just get by, struggling from day to day, feeling that your head is barely above water. If you are saved, God’s Spirit lives in you. Time with Him and in His Word with an obedient heart is the key.

Prayer Suggestion:

Father, I need You. I believe You have more for me than I have experienced so far. Please show me Your plan for my life.
