Get Filled Up!



"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled."

(Matthew 5:6, NIV)



Sometimes, itís easy to get wrapped up in taking care of the people around us. You may find that youíre always giving, taking care of the children, working overtime at the office, or helping that friend who is struggling. And thatís all good. But if youíre not careful, you can end up feeling rundown. Thatís why you have to take time every day to get filled back up. Your first priority should be taking care of yourself and making time to get into the presence of Jesus. Throughout scripture, we see that in Godís presence, there is fullness of joy, fullness of peace, and fullness of victory. In His presence, youíre refreshed and restored. Thatís why itís so important to take time every day to read your Bible and meditate on His promises. We have to be diligent to have quiet time with Him.

Today, take time to get alone with God and just say, ďGod, I love You today. Thank You for my life, for my family, for the opportunities Youíve given me. Lord, I know every good thing comes from You.Ē When you live like that, with your heart connected to His, youíll be refreshed, restored and filled up for the journey of life ahead!



Father, thank you for filling me with Your strength. Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, so that I can be righteous in You. I hunger for Your truth and seek You first. Draw me to You and keep me close to You always in Jesusí name. Amen
