May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
A lot of things can happen at a gas station. One time when I was getting gas, there was a full-on concert going on at the gas station. I don’t mean someone was playing their music loudly from their car, there were three guys and a girl with instruments playing by the curb. They had set up a small stage, microphones, speakers and were going for it. The funny thing is they were outstanding. So as I was pumping my gas, I got sucked into the concert. The next thing I knew, I felt something splashing on my legs. I looked down, and there it was I had overfilled my tank, and the gas was overflowing out of the car.
After I wiped off the car and drove off, I was a little upset that I had wasted gas. After all, gas was not cheap, and I didn’t have a whole lot of extra money to spend. Then I looked at the trip computer in my car. Typically, on a full tank, the car said I could go 363 miles. This time was different. I looked down, and the computer said I had a range of 401 miles. What I always thought was a full tank was not completely full. There was a little more space for fuel than I thought, even if there as some overflow.
Friends, I want you to know that the fuel of life is joy. For where you are going, you are going to need more fuel than usual. You are going to need the overflow of joy to get you through tough times, hard places, and difficult spaces. The great thing about God is he has enough joy that he can fill you, overflow you, and still have plenty left to do it again. In this season, don’t stop at full. Really open yourself up and let God fill you, and then overflow you.
