For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.” – Colossians 2:9-10
I was driving on the expressway this week and was slowed down by traffic, almost to a stand still. There were big trucks all around me and I felt caged-in and trapped and even irritated that I had to wait. But, then I got a message, an insight into what I was stuck in. These trucks are caring for what we need for our daily existence. These big trucks have trailers filled with products that are needed for us to live. Sometimes the very thing that irritates us is the very things we need. This truck sat beside me, packed with things I probably needed and that driver was responsible for getting them to me. Soon, I will walk into a store and see the thing that irritated me displayed on a shelf waiting for me.
I am reminded that Jesus said we have the fullness of the Godhead in us! YOU are full of what people around you are in need of. You are responsible to deliver these goods to the people around you. There are so many waiting on you to deliver. Out of YOUR innermost being shall come rives of living water. So, we must learn to be patient. To deliver what we have may cause irritation, but keep pressing on, to a place you can deliver what you have been given by Jesus sending the Holy Ghost.
