Spilled Out

The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. Luke 6:45

What spills out of you every day?

Your moods from yesterday you simply cannot let go of yet?

Your depression from the hand life has dealt you?

Negativity, expecting the worst every time?

Anger as you are better then all of this?

Or joy, knowing God is above it all?

Peace, resting in the knowledge that God’s got this and more?

Mercy, remembering how God has poured out His mercy liberally on you?

What spills out of you tends to resort back to one question: who or Who is on the throne of your heart?

If it’s yourself, which is extremely common, then whatever spills out of you will be contingent upon your flighty circumstances.

It will depend upon who pleases you or not.

If God is on your heart’s throne, out will spill the fruits of the spirit as you remember God’s in control and you are not.

Luke 6 reminds us out of our heart’s abundance, the mouth speaks.

Out of your heart.

What’s in your heart? Values, beliefs, things you know and believe to be true.

If your heart believes God’s got this and more, spilling out of you will be His mercy and love to others.

But if your heart desires yourself and the things of this world, ugliness will spill when things do not go your way.

What will you choose?

Will you spread God’s very self to others this day?

Ask God to fill you with Himself.

Give Him the throne of your heart.

That way, when things spill out, you’ll be His hands and feet to those you meet.
