Everyday God

Everyday Prayer: Fill the Tank

Most the comments I hear about filling up gas tanks are negative, focusing most often on the costs. If you’re able to fill up your vehicle with a tank of gas (or any amount of gas at all), you are indeed blessed. Be thankful you have a vehicle to drive. Instead of being grumpy about the gas prices, consider another focus.

The time it takes to fill up your gas tank is a great opportunity to thank God for filling you up and to commit to trusting him for continuing to fill you up as you yield to him. You were never intended to run on empty. You need fuel, and while you might try to push through on the remnants of fumes, there is no need when you know God is ready, willing and able to fill you. He gives you the fuel you need for every day, and he gives you his endless supply. The Holy Spirit is not limited. He is, however, costly. He requires you to give up yourself and let him provide and guide. It’s a worthwhile exchange.

    He kept filling us with the breath of life each time we wake up, His steadfast love and mercies are new every morning.
