Rich reading from Andrew Murray’s “The Master’s Indwelling”:
Waiting upon God---that is the only true expression for the real relation of the creature to God; to be nothing before God.
What is the essential idea of a creature made by God?
It is this: to be a vessel in which He can pour out His fullness, in which He can exhibit His life, His goodness, His power and His love.
A vessel must be empty if it is to be filled, and if we are to be filled with the life of God we must be utterly empty of self.
This is the glory of God, that He is to fill all things, and more especially His redeemed people.
And this is the glory of the creature…to be empty and as nothing before God; to wait upon Him, and to let God be all in all.
Let us ask today: What do I fill my life with? Why does every corner of my day need to be filled for me to feel ok? What if this emptiness, this nothingness I feel at times, is calling me to Him?
