When EMPTY is Really FULL

To be completely honest, emptying myself of me is my greatest challenge, but there is where God meets me, on my knees, empty and small in my own eyes.

Excerpt from the book, Surrounded By Angels by Andre Morea:

“I am totally convinced that God delights especially to answer prayer made to Him in impossible situations.

He is pleased when we go out on a limb with Him – when we commit our whole destiny in His hands, so that we depend entirely on His love.

It is then that He can show His mighty power and stretch forth His mighty hand to deliver us.”

That quote by our brother Andre Morea, a courageous Bible smuggler behind the Iron Curtain fifty years ago, speaks volumes about how God works to fill us up and come to our aid and defense when we empty ourselves of ourselves.

Andre Morea was a Bible courier to communist Romania when the fate of such souls was often brutal and unfair. Many times they suffered mind-numbing interrogations, beatings, starvation, long imprisonment, and sometimes even worse. The events of this book took place in the 1960’s and 70’s. The big question in my mind is what has been the outcome of the Bibles that Brother Morea smuggled into Communist Romania fifty years ago? I would really like to know.
