Ephesians 3:16-21 is one of my favorite scriptures to declare and pray. It is PACKED with incredible truths for us!

…that He (God) would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height – to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen (emphasis mine).

In today’s 60-second serving of God’s word, we’re going to unpack one phrase: “filled with all the fullness of God.”

I don’t know about you, but I want the fullness of God – all He is, all He has to offer and all He has for me to do!

In the Greek, the phrase means to make full from fullness. (Filled is the Greek word plēroō[1] and fullness in the Greek is plērōma[2] from the root plēroō.)

It’s to supply liberally from what is abundant, and once full, to be rendered complete. Nothing wanting.

Picture two cargo ships: one is God and one is you. God’s ship is filled and fully equipped to overflowing with supplies, crew, etc. His full cargo ship is that which fills our empty one! He has an abundance of freight and personnel – everything we could ever need for life and godliness – and He offloads what we need from the abundance of the fullness of His ship!

Dock your empty vessel to God's fully-stocked cargo ship "that you may be filled with all the fullness of God" (Ephesians 3:19 NKJV).

When we dock our empty vessel to God’s abundant supply  ship – when we prioritize our days to make time to worship, pray, read and study the Bible, go to church, etc. – we are filled with His fullness! In the process, we are made complete and rendered perfect to carry out what He has for us to do.

That’s all.

Dock your ship to God, that you may be filled with His fullness today!
