Fill the Emptiness - August 30

Even with the love they provide 

They can never fill the emptiness 

That we have inside 

Today we continue sharing the scratch recording of our song, You Are My Everything

Today in our devotion, as believers, we know that we are only complete in the Lord.  He created us to have a hunger in our hearts for something more.  And only He can fill that empty place in our souls. 

Many of us have gone through life turning to people and things to fill that void of making us feel complete.  But in the end, we come up empty. 

Billy Graham said it best, "Only God can satisfy our inner hunger, and He will, as we turn to Him and by faith open our hearts and lives to Christ’s transforming power.  God doesn’t want us to wander through life, constantly wondering who we are or why we’re here.  Instead, Christ came into the world to bring us back to God, and He will, as we commit our lives to Him." 

We pray today that you may to know the fullness of the love that God has for you.  May you never hunger or thirst again. 

Scriptures: 

My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.  When shall I come and appear before God? (Psalm 42:2) 

Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly.  You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him.  When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything. (Colossians 2:9&10 MSG) 

Prayer: 

Lord, only You can fill the emptiness that is inside us.  You created us to be in relationship with You.  Thank You for filling us with Your love and Holy Spirit.   Amen.
