And they were all filled. Acts 2:4
What are you filled with today? Are you filled with anger, jealousy, fear, worry about tomorrow, anxiety or are you filled with joy, peace, and love? Two things cannot occupy the same space. Often, when embarking upon a more healthy lifestyle, people will undergo a detox. The detox is necessary to flush the old harmful waste out of the cells of the body so that there will be space for the vital and beneficial nutrients necessary for the body to function properly. Similarly, we are to be filled with the Holy Spirit so that other negative influences of the enemy will have no space to operate in our lives. As Believers, we are to be filled with the fruit of the Holy Spirit. The Bible states that "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness" and "temperance" (Galatians 5:22-23).
