The purpose of a funnel

I used to think that I was a closed vessel, such as a┬ájug in the Kingdom; and that YHWH would poor His anointing into us and the overflow would flow onto others around us. I was praying about this one day asking to be filled so I could ‘splash’ others. I was convicted by the Set-Apart Spirit that YHWH does not waste anointing. I remember thinking that I had not heard correctly, how could He waste it if He filled me? Then I was convicted of my attitude of pride/self-importance. Needless to say I had to deal with my attitude before I could receive from the Father. YHWH showed me a picture of a funnel filling a jar with oil. The hand holding the vessel was steadily dispensing oil into jars so not a drop of oil was spilt. The pouring was purposeful. YHWH showed me that He wanted funnels who would funnel His love, His mercy, His word to others.

I remember thinking that funnels have no bottom and they are never full. YHWH showed me that the mouth of the funnel was coated in oil, a layer of what had been poured through the funnel coated the mouth of the funnel. When we allow Him to use us as a funnel we receive in fullness and there is always enough for us, what is poured through us remains in us.

Funnels have wide openings, showing that we need to be open to Him, His word and Spirit. Open to obeying and seeking His will, careful with what we are given and not withholding that which He bestows upon us from blessing others. The storehouses of Heaven are full and Abba Father is waiting for funnels through which He can funnel His love to His people. Be open to receive and give where and when the Hand of God requires.
