The God Who Fulfills

Day 10

And Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to Me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in Me will never be thirsty.”

– John 6:35

Additional Reading: Psalm 63:1-5

A term that comes to mind when I see the struggle of this world is that the world is unfulfilled. Unfulfilled is defined as “not carried out or brought to completion.” This is what the world feels: always incomplete. Maybe some of you at times feel the same way. I am here to let you know that through God you can feel complete and fulfilled to the utmost and overflowing! Think about what makes up the word fulfilled, which is what we should be in Christ. Filled is the key word within fulfilled. God wants nothing more than for you to be filled with His power, love, joy, and peace each day! When we are filled with God, we can become fulfilled in life!

Think of it like this: when the gas light comes on in a car, it is a warning sign that we need to fill the car up. But there are people who like to challenge the accuracy of this light! Think of this car as your spiritual life and the gas tank as your fulfillment. How many times has God wanted to fill and fulfill us during the day and we ignore the warning signs: that we are running on spiritual fumes and eventually will trip up, slip, maybe fall and make mistakes? Even worse, because of us running on fumes we feel the anxiety and worry of the world of unfulfillment. This occurred because we chose not to heed the warning signs that we are running on fumes spiritually.

When we are filled with God, we can become fulfilled in life!

How many of us live each day on fumes, just skimming by and barely being fulfilled by God? We let work, family, school and the busyness of life slowly crowd out our time with God. When we run low on spiritual fumes, our desperate, sinful nature will entice us to fill up with things that will never fulfill us. Figuratively, it’s like filling our gas tank with the wrong kind of fuel.

Reading the Word of God and spending time with Him each day keeps our tank filled and our life fulfilled. God will overflow our hearts and souls with the right fuel. When we are fueled up, we are ready for our mission. When we fulfill that mission, we find completion. Heed spiritual warning signs and make sure you are continually filling up with God each day! He wants nothing more than to fill you and fulfill you in life! Not to mention, it is a great feeling driving around with a full tank of gas!

God is good… all the time… all the time…
