3 Steps to Filling Your Cup Daily
- Carve out time to seek God
God leaves us with instructions to start each day by teaching us to “seek Him first, then all these things will be added to you” (Matthew 6:33). I’m not saying it has to be the first thing you do when you wake up. “Seek first” is an indication of priorities. But I like the idea of filling my cup up with God’s spirit before I fill it up with what the world has to offer. Decide on the best time that works for you and make it a part of your daily routine.
- Empty out your cup
Before you can fill up your cup, you must first empty it out. You cannot fill something up that is fully or partially full of other things. Pour out your hurts, concerns, worries, agenda, unforgiveness, sin, and requests as God says to “cast all your burdens on Him” (1 Peter 5:7). Once you empty yourself out, it leaves room for you to then fill yourself back up with Him.
- Fill up with God’s word and strive to memorize Scripture
Receive the word of God like an athlete might receive an energy bar. Scripture is food and nourishment for your spirit. It is crucial to fill your cup up with the “God-breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16) words of Scripture because they consist of truth. We live in a world full of lies, but thankfully, we have the truth to fill us up at our fingertips.
