Filled in His presence

Water ball

18 Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit Ephesians 5:18 (NLT)

Be filled with the Holy Spirit. What does that mean? It means we are not filled with us.

Filled to the full = fulfilled. If we are ever fulfilled with ourselves, what we do, with what we have achieved how can we rely on God? There is nothing inside us with any capacity to host the Holy Spirit

Why would we ever rely on God if we have enough resources for our lives? Why and wait for Gods presence if we can rely on our own judgement and wisdom?

Today: Are you filled with you? Be filled with the Holy Spirit

The rock with a tap?

Who on earth would have expected this? – it is like a Harry Potter film. How did flowing

water suddenly appear out of a dry rock. Not just a little dribble but enough for a whole nation to drink, bathe, cook with. In other words a gushing stream.

 Ex 17 :6 I will stand before you on the rock at Mount Sinai.Strike the rock, and water will come gushing out. Then the people will be able to drink.” So Moses struck the rock as he was told, and water gushed out as the elders looked on.

 1 Corinthians 10:4 and all of them drank the same spiritual water. For they drank from the spiritual rock that traveled with them, and that rock was Christ.

On this adventure we are going to see some strange sights. Sights that will make our eyes pop out of our heads. Things that will make no sense our your brain but every sense to our hearts.

We know there is one that travels with us. He is a rock. He is Christ. This rock not only has the normal characteristics of a rock being solid and dependable, a sure foundation but also has heavenly surprises   Even in the hardest, driest place this rock travels with us so we know we are safe and then the rock overflows with water to refresh our thirsty souls.

Today: In the heat of today, in the hard parts of this week turn to the rock and know you are secure. Then drink deeply refreshing waters that flow out of Christ
