I had a revelation or epiphany if that’s what you want to call it this morning at breakfast. I was eating a scone and all of a sudden, this thought came to me and it said; that bread is just a filler! And I was really arrested in my spirit and so I didn’t eat the rest of it, and I started thinking about Jesus being the Bread of Life. So, while sitting at my table alone surrounded by probably 200 people, I’m having this conversation with God and I said, Lord, I don’t want fillers in my life, I want You, the Bread of Life to fill me to the full and I’ve been continually dwelling on that.
I went to the scripture in John 6:35 where Jesus tells them that He is the Bread of Life. And Jesus replied I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to me will never be hungry and he who believes and cleaves to and trust in relying on Me will never be thirsty anymore at any time. Then in verse 38 of chapter 6, He said; for I have come down from heaven not to do my own will and purpose, but to do the will and purpose of Him Who sent me.
Now a question arises in my heart and I’m asking myself what areas in my life and I am collecting things just to fill up space? Whether it’s in my spirit or in my soul and again saying, I don’t want things just to fill and occupy the space within me because God desires that space and I desire for Him to have it.
While I continue with my breakfast again, I reinter-rate to the Lord, Father I don’t want fillers in my life, I want Jesus, Who is the Bread of Life to fill every space in me that may be empty or is needing to be refilled. Now I return to my room, and I’m looking in John chapter 6 and again boom I have another revelation. While reading where Jesus fed the 5000 with 5 barley loaves and 2 fish, and it says that they ate as much as they wanted. He then told His disciples to gather up now the fragments, the broken pieces so nothing may be lost or wasted. Aha, a light went on in me, and what I’ve gathered from this is the broken pieces of life are never to be lost or wasted with God.
So, I had to ask myself a question. Is there anything broken or lost in my life? Honestly, right now I can’t answer that question, so by reason of deduction the answer is yes, but I don’t know what it is, however, God does. But the beauty in all of this is whatever is broken or lost in your life if you give it to God, even if you don’t know what it is, it is never wasted because He takes those broken, lost, and fragmented pieces of life and He uses them.
So, this is my revelation this morning. It’s just so fresh in my spirit and my heart is so tender now before the Lord because as I have said now for the umpteenth time, I don’t want fillers in my life. I want my life to be occupied with Jesus, and Father, and the Holy Spirit, and to be like Jesus in what He said; I haven’t come to do My own will.
I, Karen, am not here on this earth to do my own will, I’ve been put here like Jesus to do the will of the Father. So, I pray that this sweet, what some may call a messy revelation or Epiphany,” I just call it being real with God”, that you can take something away from this and that it will be good for you.
I love you and I bless you in Jesus name.
