Wanting Fixing Over Filling...

Updated: Oct 25, 2019

I confess my all-too-strong tendency to want FIXING rather than FILLING. 


We define “fixing” to mean, “our problems are taken away.” 


But Jesus’ definition of “fixing” means, “to Sovereignly align people, places & things in such a way that invites us to LET Him, not our comfort & confidence, be “Faith-Filler.” 

& this often comes in ways I’d rather not have...


...like His “fixing”—the WAITING; when I’m expecting an answer. 

...like His “fixing”—the STRUGGLE; when I’m expecting relief. 

...like His “fixing”—the STORM; when I’m expecting the calm. 

...like His “fixing”—the FEAR; when I’m expecting nerves of steel. 


The Truth is—

Jesus IS both The Fixer & The Filler; however, Jesus’ “fixing” is always woven into His “filling”.


Jesus sees our struggles. Every single one of them. 

LET Jesus watch. 


Jesus comes in ways & times we least expect. 

LET Jesus in. 


Struggles reveal our hearts in ways that point out the true depth of our faith & exposes areas of fear, doubt & hardened heart. 

LET Jesus expose. 


Jesus will always come to us. 

LET Jesus come. 


Jesus desires that we LET the struggles & trials give us the “Faith-workout” He knows we need so we can grow deeper into Him, & “wean off” of trusting ourselves & present circumstances/resources. 

LET Jesus work. 


James 1:2-4 (NLT)

Dear brothers & sisters, whenever trouble comes your way, LET it be an opportunity for joy. For when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So LET it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be strong in character & ready for anything.


LET Jesus...

...take His time, when we think He’s being slow;

...assure us, “I Am here!”; when we think He’s left us;

...BE our faithful FAITH-filler. 


He fills us with His sufficient grace to allow Him to grow in us an ever-growing faith amidst the “fixings” He sovereignly allows-

True Biblical Filling-Faith:

The confident obedience that 

HE IS who He says HE is 

WILL DO all He says HE WILL do. 

Amen.
