Int o Ful l ness OVERFLOW: "To fill or cover (something) completely. To be completely filled with something: to be so filled that there is not enough room for anything or anyone more." Merriam-Webster: Dictionary God desires to take us beyond receiving information about Him and into ever-greater depths of His heart ? to experience the fullness of Him. Fullness stems from a Greek word, pl?r?ma, and means that which is (has been) filled. [i] To be filled with the fullness of God is to be filled with His attributes ? one of which is His LOVE. It is to overflow with Him in every way. Webster?s Dictionary defines 'overflow' as "to fill or cover (something) completely. Or to be completely filled with something: to be so filled that there is not enough room for anything or anyone more." I like the thought of being so filled with God?s love that I have no room for anything else. This means to have no fear ? no shame ? no doubt ? no bitterness ? and no resentment; we just completely overflow in Him. To overflow in God is to LOVE Him with all of our heart. It is to love others (and ourselves) with HIS amazing love. Numbers Numbers are very important to God. Otherwise, He wouldn?t have a book in the Bible called Numbers. In researching the number 16, I found it is symbolic for love and loving. I believe as we enter into this New Year of 2016, God desires each heart receive a greater revelation and realization of His LOVE. "Revelation is the key that unlocks our captive heart. Realization is the manifestation of His truth working within our life." 6 February 2016 Point of Hope Magazine
