Whatever you are full of will eventually overflow to everyone around you. You cannot give what you don’t have. You will ultimately confess, attract, and produce what you’re full of.
If you store the word of God in your heart, that’s what will come out, not profane words. Let God’s word change you from the inside out.
Your life is a reflection of what you believe. The way you see the world is as a result of what you are full of. No two people see the world the same way. We are living in a world within worlds, a kingdom within kingdoms. Every man’s world is a mirror of his mind.
As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart. Proverbs 27:19 (NIV)
What Are You Known For?
Are you full of yourself, rubbing people the wrong way with your words, sarcasm, or you are known for peace, encouragement, and unifying people?
We all know that one person we would never call on our worst day because their words are not edifying.
A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. Luke 6:45
What Are You Feeding On?
You are full of whatever you feed on the most. If you feed on love, you will be full of love. If you feed on hate, anger, and fear, that’s what you will reproduce. You’ve heard the saying “Garbage in, garbage out. It’s not rocket science. Whatever goes in will come out one day through our actions, words, and how we treat others.
It is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.” Proverbs 27:19, ESV.
Who Are You Surrounded By?
The people you are surrounded by are indicators of what you might be full of since no one can truly see themselves as they are.
“Therefore, brethren, select from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task. Act 6:3.
In my own life, I have found this statement to be true. “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn.
Be Filled With The Spirit of Christ.
Are you full of Christ and the Holy Spirit? You may be a Christain, attending Church but do not a personal relationship with Christ.
I’ve found that going directly to Christ has made the most significant impact on my spiritual walk. And doing life with few people who are in for the long-haul, committed to Christ, have walked the talk, time tested, being through the fire and the school of hard knocks.
The more I practice discerning God’s voice and waiting on Him to speak. Fruitless, vain, and worthless things that once captured my interest are no longer enticing or satisfying. Layers of judgment have peeled away and replaced with compassion, forgiveness, and truth.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness. Galatian 5:22, ESV
Being full of Christ produces godly character and good fruit, such as wisdom, love, and
fostering a peaceful environment.
A positive, lasting, and permanent change starts from within, on the inside, intentionally, not by chance. If you don’t like what you see, how you feel, what you hear, the feedback you get — Change it.
