I was listening to my Mandisa CD the other day (love that girl!) and her song “Voice of a Savior” came on. I truly LISTENED to the words and started thinking about how true those words are. We all have a hole in our heart; our Spirits that we need filled. We try to fill them with all kinds of different things. Some of us try drugs, sex, alcohol. Others look for it in success or money or earthly things. Still some look for it in attention from the opposite sex or even in their spouses. Some just love to deny that there is a God; yet only God could make someone as remarkable as you!
We all have a place that needs to be filled. I have talked to so many people over the years that have said “I just feel like there is something more out there.” Well, yes there is. I have never been so happy as when I am doing God’s work. I have never been so happy as when I was in China, filthy dirty with mud building those people a church. Never will we be so fulfilled as when we are serving God and others.
I looked around my church this morning and saw so many people from so many different backgrounds. I saw people who had once been hooked on drugs. I saw people who have been having marital problems due to their own mistakes (and we all make mistakes). I saw people who have been hooked on alcohol and some who have been in jail. But, I saw them all gathered in one place praising God. They found what fills that hole in their heart. They found out it is not alcohol, drugs, sex, or otherwise. No, they found their space is only filled by the living God; the God who made the universe. The God who formed the sky, moon, stars and YOU. They found they are truly happy when they are in His fellowship.
We all have to come to the conclusion in our own way (see blog on Point of Brokenness) and we can fight it as long as we want to. We may feel like we don’t want to give up our current way of life. We may feel like we won’t have any fun. Let me assure you of this…I have been drunk, high, etc and never did I truly have fun. My church family means the world to me and with them, I truly have fun.
So, now we all have a choice…what or Whom will you let fill your spot? You are in need of a savior…will you listen to His voice, as He is constantly speaking, and allow Him to come in and fill your God space? Will you allow your life to overtaken by the one who gave it to you? Will you offer yourself to Him to use for His glory? Will you listen to the voice of a savior?
