Fullness

rainyA little glimpse out my bedroom window…

Yesterday was a rainy and dreary Monday (windy and cold too). It was one of those days where you wish going to class and work were optional. I guess technically they are, but that wouldn’t make me the best student or employee…

Anyway, I had a break in the afternoon in between classes and work so I trudged back to my apartment. I changed out of my wet clothes and climbed into my warm bed with my Bible. I’m currently studying Colossians with She Reads Truth and yesterday’s devotion focused on Colossian 2:6-15. The entire section rocked me, but I was especially struck by verse 10…

“and you have been given FULLNESS in Christ, who is the head over EVERY power and authority.”

I stopped and immediately spoke that verse out loud. I have been given FULLNESS in Christ. Even more so, I haven’t been given fullness by just anybody, but by the the very Lord who is over every power and authority. He is stronger than anything that tries to enslave me. He is stronger than any of the lies that the enemy uses to wage war against my soul. He is stronger because He is the only One who can truly give fullness.

This song came on while I was reading and it made me get up and dance around my bedroom. Oh the truth of the lyrics are a reason to rejoice…I encourage you to listen. I hope that you are able to dance in the fullness that Christ gives…

Much much love to all of you!

I needed to hear this! Thanks! We are full with Christ, by him, in all his glory. He fills us. He completes us. I love this.
