16 May Overflow #8
At this point in the conversation it might be worth pondering “overflow” in scripture. As I searched and scribbled in my notebook the page filled (a literal overflow) with many many references to abundance, plenty, fullness and overflow.
I’ve jotted down my favourites for you to dwell on in the coming weeks:
You visit the earth and make it overflow [with water]; You greatly enrich it; The stream of God is full of water; You provide their grain, when You have prepared the earth. You water its furrows abundantly, You smooth its ridges; You soften it with showers, You bless its growth. You crown the year with Your bounty, And Your paths overflow.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You have anointed and refreshed my head with oil; My cup overflows.
….I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
1 Thessalonians 3:12
And may the Lord cause you to increase and excel and overflow in love for one another, and for all people, just as we also do for you;
Write them out. Stick them on your fridge. Speak them aloud. Live in truth.
