In the beginning, the Earth was without Form and Void, until God began to speak. It is interesting however that God called everything into existence except Man. When it came time to form you, Heaven was at full attention, and so Man was Formed by God from the dust of the ground. This mode of Formation required a touch and from the days of Adam till now Man has required a constant touch from God.
In Clinical Psychology there’s what is called “Deprivation Dwarfism” this basically is the separation of New born babies (Newly Formed) into two categories. Both categories are given the same love and attention, they are fed the same thing (Hear the same Word from God), are in the same place (Go to the same church). The only differentiating factor between the two categories is that one set are ‘Touched’ in terms of being carried, drawn close and held while the other set are not. After a while it is noticed that the set of those who were ‘Touched’ end up growing Bigger, Stronger and generally more Functional than the latter.
This is the same with God and Man, you cannot be Formed and simply run off as though you are self sufficient. Yes, you hear the word, Yes – you go to church but the lack of a touch has left a lot spiritually dwarfed! In this context the touch is being Filled with the Breath of life, with Holy Ghost and with Power.
It’s a wonderful thing to be Filled but it also places a heavy responsibility on us, because then you have Give as you receive. We all know receiving is the easy part, giving is where the challenge is. A container filled out of capacity will probably explode, so will an over charged battery or an over-fed person (LOL…but we know Obesity kills). This happens when you receive so much and give absolutely nothing back.
If you have been Formed & Filled, then you ought to Function! If you purchase a phone or anything at all that does not function in the purpose it was created for, you either return it to get a replacement or if it had functioned but didn’t go as far as expectation you toss it aside (Separation from the Body of Christ). You have got no other choice than to Function!
The question you may ask is Function where and in what capacity? Well to begin with we know God’s expectation for us from His Word…Prosper, Be in Health, Have Dominion, Subdue, Replenish.
Understand that we need a constant touch and we definitely need a constant Filling. That is why a Hug or a kind word in the middle of a crisis can make all the difference, just like you need to charge and recharge your mobile devices to get you through the day sometimes you need to be Filled a little more than others to be able to Function in that thing God has called you to.
Are you Formed? Are you Filled? Then you have to Function!
Bad investments yields no profit, if heaven has put this much in you, what are you waiting for? Go and yield profit!
