Fill ‘er up

A few days ago I stopped at a gas station to fill up my gas tank. As I was standing there I realized that underneath the ground that I was standing on were underground storage tanks filled with a highly flammable and explosive substance. There may have been tens of thousands of gallons of gasoline right underneath my feet. I can honestly say that in all the years I have been putting gas in my car I’ve never really thought about that.

The gasoline is there but unseen; underneath the surface and only accessible by means of a delivery system – the gas pump. The benefits of the gasoline are merely potential until I pull it up into my car by means of the pump.

Faith is the delivery system of God. All His promises, His provision, His Presence are accessed by faith. All these things (and more) are right at our fingertips in the unseen world, but if we do not access them by mean of the delivery system of faith, we will sputter through life on fumes.

Don’t live on empty for another moment. Take hold of what God has provided and by faith let it become your reality.

    Yours is a great word picture, Eirene. Well done.

    For some reason, I thought of this scripture:

    “After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly”. Acts 4:31

    Fill ‘er up!

    Both comments are great additions to the message.
    Thinking of fire. I was 2 cars away from an accident today. The car rear ended, actually blew up into flames. Hot flames that shocked me as I felt it through my closed car door 2 cars back.. This fire consumed the SUV with seconds. Was amazing.
    If we got filled with His fire it would consume the besetting sin, our thoughts, our lack of faith. Everything around us the fire would take over. Spreading wild the gospel of Jesus. Yet heating us up to forging temperature. So HE could forge us into the solider needed in these end days. …..

    Wow Chrissy! That sounds kinda scary. Glad you’re okay and I hope nobody was hurt.

    Yes, we NEED the fire of God to burn up all the dross that remains in us. 🔥
