Fill in the Gaps

Some synonyms for fill in the gaps are see the big picture, put two and two together, come up with a logical deduction and draw a conclusion from the facts to name a few.

Who needs to fill in the gaps? Those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal Savior.

John 3:16 KJV For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Upon reading this verse we can come to the conclusion (fill in the gaps) that:

  1. God loves all of us.
  2. God gave His Son for our sins.
  3. Belief in Jesus saves us from perishing.
  4. Belief in Jesus gives us everlasting life.

What we are to do with the word of God is:

Read for our learning (Romans 15:4)

Study to help us grow in faith and in Christ-likeness (1 Peter 2:2).

Meditate On to be successful (Joshua 1:8).

Apply and be transformed in our thinking, speech and actions (2 Corinthians 3:18).

  • What do we need to fill in the gaps to? The gospel.
  • Where do we need to fill in the gaps? In our hearts and minds.
  • When do we need to fill in the gaps? Every time we read the word of God.
  • Why do we need to fill in the gaps? To draw nearer to God. His word says to study to show ourselves approved unto Him (2 Timothy 2:15).

It is imperative in today’s world that we dig into the word of God. This is our manna from on high. His word is our spiritual food (John 6:58). We need to have His precious word written on our hearts (Psalm 119:11) and in our minds (Philippians 4:7). How will we face the enemy (Ephesians 6:11) without His word? How will we face any issues (Philippians 4:6) in our life without His word? How will we have the knowledge of what to do (Psalm 119:105) in and under any circumstance? How will He speak to us (2 Peter 1:21) if we do not know His word?

Father God,

We, Your children, need You with every breath, in every step, with every action and in all of our dealings with others. We need the light of Your word to illuminate us. Oh, Father, draw us in to Your sweet presence and let our lives radiate with the truth of Your word. Write Your words on our hearts and minds, transform the way that we think and help us to be Your children in every aspect of our lives. May every single action in all of our comings and goings and in every single interaction that we have with others bring glory to Your great name. Help us to love like Jesus, to forgive automatically and to walk hand in hand with You through everything this life throws at us, until the day You call us home. We praise You and we love You, Lord. We are surrendered to Your will. Have Your way in all things. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
