2 Kings 4:3 “Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, [even] empty vessels; borrow not a few.”
2 Kings 4:3 “”Here’s what you do,” said Elisha. “Go up and down the street and borrow jugs and bowls from all your neighbors. And not just a few–all you can get.”
Friend, empty vessels might be making the loudest noise but most of them are actually shouting, “I need some filling”. An empty vessel is one that desires to be filled. It is one that is thirsty and panting after righteousness.
Jesus said empty, hungry and thirsty vessels are blessed because they have the capacity to be filled.
Matthew 5:6 “Blessed [are] they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”
Beloved, could it be that you’re yet to experience wonders and step into the realm of the miraculous because you’re too full?
When something is empty it simply means unoccupied. So when men say you’re empty or calls you an empty barrel, it simply means you have the capacity to be full.
God is looking for empty vessels, men who have emptied themselves of self, hatred, covetousness and pride. He wants men and women who are hungry and thirsty.
To be empty or hungry means to be eager or having an avid desire
(‘appetite’) for something.
Matthew 9:11 “And when the Pharisees saw [it], they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?”
Matthew 9:12 “But when Jesus heard [that], he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.”
If you are full of yourself and think you know it all then you have no need of the miraculous. Jesus said he has no business with such people, he cane for such as are empty and in need of divine intervention.
Beloved, in what area of life are you sick, tired, hungry or empty?
