TITLE: “ONLY HE CAN FILL YOU UP”

“ONLY HE CAN FILL YOU UP”

Only He can fill you up so go to Him and enjoy His Company. Let’s go to:

Psalms 5:10 “But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.”

Here trust (Strong’s 2620) to flee for protection, confide or have hope in, refuge or trust; rejoice (Strong’s 8055) to brighten up, joyful or cheer up; shout (Strong’s 7442) to shout for joy or rejoice or triumph; defendest (Strong’s 5526) to cover over, protect, set or fence in; love (Strong’s 157) to have affection or love like a friend; name (Strong’s 8034) to mark or a memorial, honor, authority or character; and joyful (Strong’s 5970) to jump for joy, or triumph. So go to Him for and confide in Him since He is only One that you can trust 100% with all your hopes and your dreams. He will brighten up your day and you can enjoy the victory you have with now in Him. If you let Him, He will be that Shepherd that will cover you and fence you in like a Good Shepherd would His sheep because He loves you like a friend. You hear His Voice when He calls you, so go to Him and honor Him and thank Him for being Who He is and be joyful to know that He is always there for you.

Dear God always loves to hear from you, so talk deeply and intimately with Him. He likes to hear everything you are feeling and about all the challenges and great things He has put into your path. Sometimes that is why you go through the challenges so you can go to Him and rest in Him.

Enjoy Him even more by knowing what He wants from you and why you are here. He has written it all in the Word and it is there for your pleasure so you can enjoy Him. By having that deeper understanding of Him and the willingness to get closer to Him, He will confide more in you by giving you eyes to see and ears to hear as here in:

Ecc 8:16 “When I applied mine heart to know wisdom, and to see the business that is done upon the earth: (for also [there is that] neither day nor night seeth sleep with his eyes:)”

All wisdom comes from Him so go to Him and learn more and be happy and at peace. After all He is the One that Creator you and it was for Him to love and for His Pleasure.

Finally, only He can fill you up so get full of His Love. Be closer to Him in the Word and enjoy His Company by talking lovingly to Him. Tell Him all the great things you want to do to help Him in His Plan of Love. Most of all, love Him and tell Him that He is the Most Important One to you and make His Day. He really cares about you.

Thanks dear God for Your Love,

Mindy

It is so wonderful to know that we serve a God that is approachable and that we can communicate with Him. We serve a God who does not sleep. That is wonderful to know, especially on those sleepless nights. Good writing.

Melinda, I agree that scripture often has meanings hidden behind our English words that we don't catch. However, I think that incorporating those meanings into the body of your article would make it much easier to read than to insert the Strongs references. There's so much meat here but I found it hard to wade through. But thank you for reminding me again to read God's Word in DEPTH!
