FILL THE VOID
Romans 15:13 – Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, for you to abound in hope in the power of the Holy Spirit. (BLB)
Read: Revelation 3:20
There is a void in every human being—a vacuum that cannot be filled with money or strength. If earthly things could fill this emptiness, the rich would have direct access to eternity while the strong would not have to die. At first, God created humans to be fruitful, multiply, and have fellowship with Him. However, after Adam and Eve sinned and became naked, God covered their shame by clothing them with coats of skin, even though sin had destroyed God’s original plan for humankind.
At this point, labour and eventual death (spiritual and physical) became the penalties for sin. But God realised that man would only be subjected to Satan. Therefore, God initiated a restoration plan by sacrificing His son for humanity. Meanwhile, the lamb from whose skin God made the coats to cover Adam and Eve represented Christ, who became the sacrificial lamb for our redemption. John 1:29b says, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”
Beloved, the summary of the matter is that Satan strategises and uses sin to separate God’s children from the Father, which is the foundation for the void in a human’s soul. The good news is that God wants a reunion with the lost. He gave Jesus and the Holy Spirit, as seen in our Bible reading, to fill the emptiness, guilt, and hopelessness in people’s souls. Until man returns to the source (God), the thirst in the soul won’t be quenched. If need be, accept Christ today—ACT.

1. Lord Jesus, please refill me inside out!
(THE MIDNIGHT PRAYER)
1. Every mountain of unrest and impossibility in my life, crash down!
2. Peace like a river, flow into my life, my family, the nations, and the Church.
