20 Mar Seek to Be Overflowing with the Spirit
Near the top of your bathroom sink as well in your tub just below you drain plug lever there is what is call the overflow hole. It’s purpose is simple if the sink or tub start to overflow with water, the water go’s in the hole and down the drain instead of out on to the floor.
In scripture we are told to not only be filled with the Holy Spirit, but that we need to seek to be continually filled with the Holy Spirit, it’s not a one time filling. In fact we can obtain deferent levels of fullness of the Holy Spirit depending on the person and whether or not they are pursuing to be filled with and just how much they want of the Spirit in them. The scriptures make that very clear.
Well God gave us a overflow hole, a hole that just like the one in your sink and tub, allows excess to flow into it, or in this case out of and it you mouth. Jesus said in Luke 6:45 “The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” And so it is, when you are so filled with the Holy Spirit, I mean really perusing the filling of the Spirit you overflow with the Spirit and it, He comes out of your mouth. Your words are Spirit induced, Spirit influenced, you find your talk is really the Spirit talking.
What ever you are filling up on, is what will come out of you overflow hole, if you spend you time studding and learning the word of God, the word comes out. Filling yourself up with praise for God, praise comes out. Filled up with Jesus, the Holy Spirit, things of the Spirit will be flowing out of you.
Some examples of what You will speak according the scriptures:
* The Word with all boldness.
* Utterance of wisdom
* Utterance of knowledge
* Praises to God
* Faith and Hope
* Psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord
So what are you filling up on, what are you overflowing with, your conversations will tell others. Is it the Holy Spirit you are overflowing with, Gods word? Seek to be filled tell you are overflowing with the Holy Spirit. You must seek daily, even hourly to be filled and never be satisfied with the level you are at.
This is my goal, my daily prayer, that I be filled with overflowing of the Holy Spirit.
