Make Room to be Filled…

Read: 2 Kings 4-5
Marked: 2 Kings 4:6, Now it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said to her son, “Bring me another vessel.” And he said to her, “There is not another vessel.” So the oil ceased.

This woman owed a debt but all she had of value was a small amount of oil in a jar. At the leading of Elisha she gathered more vessels and poured into them the oil from her jar until every vessel was filled.

Oil is symbolic of the Holy Spirit. God wants to fill us, and keep filling us with His Spirit. But first we must be emptied of worldly things.

Like this woman, we must trust in the word of God and do what it says. There is no room in us for the things of the world and the things of God. Luke 11:13b, how much more will your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him.
