Are you saturated with the blessings of the Lord?

“Am I a God near at hand,” says the LORD, “And not a God afar off? Can anyone hide himself in secret places, so I shall not see him?” says the LORD; “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the Lord. Jeremiah 23:23, 24.

jer-23-23-24

Fill, male‘ (mah-lay); Strong’s # 4390. Definition: To fill, fill up, be full; to fulfill. Male’ is the source of Hebrew words relating to fullness and fulfillment, ea. Filling something up to the brim (2 Kings 4:6); causing something to be thoroughly saturated, ea. Naphtali, full of the blessings of the Lord, Deut. 33:23.

In fulfilling one’s word, to declare that one will do something, and then do it. (1 Kings 2:27). God promises to fill all the Earth with awareness of His glory (Num. 14:21; Hab. 2:14). Male’ is used in the OT to describe being filled with the Holy Spirit of God; remembering that Kings, Prophets, High Priests along with skilled workman were the only recipients of the filling of God the Holy Spirit. See John 7:37-39.
