“Do Not Be Full Of This”
by Dona Hake
Over the past few days we have looked at the word ~fill~and ~being full~.   Oh that we would stay full of Jesus! We looked at being full of our loving God as we worship Him every day in awe-filled worship. Yesterday we looked at living right before Him, and the blessing of walking on the path that becomes brighter and brighter until the full day of light. Today we will ponder what we do not want to be full of.

“Others are like the seed planted among the thorny weeds. They hear the teaching, but their lives become full of other things: the worries of this life, the love of money, and everything else they want. This keeps the teaching from growing, and it does not produce a crop in their lives.”
Mark 4:18-19 – ERV
When we are filled with such things that this scripture speaks of, we will not be filled with the power of the living Word. These things will come and keep the Word from growing in us, and the devil loves when we are unfruitful and preoccupied with the world around us . This is the devil’s way of holding us back from sowing God’s Word into our hearts, and our lives to the world.
Words that are synonymous to the word ~choke~ are to be blocked, dam or plug. Today let us think about how God desires our life to be filled to the full that we live abundantly and be a rich blessing as we touch all around us.  May none of the life of God in us be blocked or hindered in Jesus Name!

“But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”
Psalm 1:2-3 KJV
