Widen the Funnel

funnel1A funnel is wider at the top so that a large amount of liquid can flow into a container with a small opening. This can usually be done without spilling and can be a very efficient method for transferring liquid. When we are wanting to fill something with a small opening  with an unlimited supply, it is more efficient to widen the opening of the receiving vessel. This can be done in your spiritual life so that we who have small openings at the moment, can receive more of God who has an unlimited supply of exactly what we need.

Do you want to be full of God’s love, His joy, His peace, His Wisdom, even His Power? You can be. All that is needed is to open ourselves up for more of God to flow in. Open up just a little more each day, a little more prayer, a little more praise, a little more kindness, a little more smiling, a little more meditating Scripture, a little more reading of the Word, a little more attention given to God. Little by little, we open up until we can contain His miracle-working faith and love. Just a little more. . .

Peace1Today’s Verse: Set your affections on things above, not on things on the earth. Colossians 3:2

Today’s Action: Open up just a little more to the things of God.
