Heavenly Father, I come to You in the Name of my Lord Jesus Christ to thank You for how You fill me with spiritual blessings. Romans 15:13 “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Even from the beginning of creation, You filled the earth with all that we have. Thank you for the ultimate filling You provide for all who accept Jesus Christ for salvation. John 1:16-17 “And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.”
It is a blessing to see in the New Testament that Jesus’ attitude was to fill people with good deeds. When Peter was not catching any fish, You told him what to do and he caught many. Luke 5:6 “And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking.” When food was needed at the Passover feast, Jesus took care of that need too. Matthew 15:36 “And He [Jesus] took the seven loaves and the fish and gave thanks, broke them and gave them to His disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitude.”
Since Jesus is still in the business of filling emptiness with Himself, direct me to be open to all that He has for me. It is a great blessing to be filled with Your Word, Spirit, truth, and the ways of Jesus’ very life. Open my ears to hear You clearly as You guide me in all my decisions. Show me how to always put You first and do away with the activities that weaken my relationship with You.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
