Ephesians 5:18-20 Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts. And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
There are a great many ways that we try to self medicate as human beings. Alcohol is only one of the ways we tried to heal our hurts and fill the emptiness inside. This passage in Ephesians in a fantastic reminder that it is infact The Holy Spirit we need to comfort and heal us. In the original Greek text ‘be filled’ in verse 18 literally carries the idea of an ongoing filling to overflowing. God, our loving father, wants us to come to him for fresh filling of His Holy Spirit each and every day so that we have all that we need to live life an attitude of praise and thankfulness. If you are feeling weary or tempted to seek some other source of comfort why not stop right now and ask Abba to fill you afresh. You can also contact us via the contact page. God bless you today
