“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:6-7).
The Amplified Bible: “Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”
Many times we do not ask the Lord to fill us (Hold pitcher of water over cup and saucer)
Other times we ask and He ALWAYS does (pour some water into cup)
Then we go about, as we should, and share with others what the Lord has filled us with (Pour from your cup into someone else)
Then we must ask the Lord to fill us again, and He always does (His living water is good to the last drop, and there is no last drop – Christian Coffee song, “Onward Christian Foldgers” lol
Here is what we need to do (Pour from big pitcher of water into cup until it overflows into saucer, then take saucer and pour what is in saucer into another person’s cup –and keep repeating that)
Fill my cup Lord, yes, over flow and keep filling me and may I give to others what over flows.
Guard my heart and mind and may I continually come to you to be filled with all You want and give to those around me what flows over and beyond me In Jesus Name and for His sake Amen.
