What Fills You Up?

Re:Verse passage – 2 Chronicles 5:1-14 (day two)

the house of the Lord, was filled with a cloud…vs. 13

What fills you up? Not in the sense of cuisine, but what occupies the most space in your heart? The idea of the presence of God filling a space so completely that there is room for nothing else is overwhelming. That, however, is the hope of our relationship with Jesus. When we give him our hearts, are we simply rearranging furniture, or are we turning over the keys to the apartment? I continually struggle to turn over those stubborn areas of my life to Jesus, but my desire is that when I am confronted with them I will act in a way that prefers him and not me. Have you taken an inventory of what occupies your heart lately? Have you tried turning over everything to him? When he fills you, there can be no room for anything other. May we continue to work for a full heart of Jesus.

  1. This reminds me of a devotional from long ago about the, “Rooms of Your Heart.” We can’t keep a secret closet, we must surrender all the rooms. So much easier to conceptualize than to practice. Thanks for your reminder!
