• “God then opened my eyes to the great truths of the New Covenant that He had established in Christ. He showed me that He had given me the power of the Holy Spirit so that I would not live for myself anymore, but only for Him.” – Annie Poonen

Seventeenth Day – Loyal Responses – by Francis R. Havergal

Filling

‘Filled with all the fulness of God.’—Eph. iii. 19.

I.
HOLY Father, Thou hast spoken
Words beyond our grasp of thought,—

Words of grace and power unbroken,
With mysterious glory fraught.

II.
Promise and command combining,
Doubt to chase and faith to lift;

Self renouncing, all resigning,
We would claim this mighty gift.

III.
Take us, Lord, oh, take us truly,
Mind and soul and heart and will

Empty us and cleanse us throughly,
Then with all thy fulness fill

IV.
Lord, we ask it, hardly knowing
What this wondrous gift may be,

But fulfil to overflowing,—
Thy great meaning let us see.

V.
Make us in Thy royal palace
Vessels worthy for the King;

From Thy fulness fill our chalice,
From Thy never-failing spring.

VI.
Father, by this blessed filling,
Dwell Thyself in us, we pray;

We are waiting, Thou art willing,
Fill us with Thyself to-day!

  • “Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands.” – Elisabeth Elliot
