I’ve been thinking about power a lot lately, particularly since our electricity has been going off 3-5 times a week, for 2-6 hours at a time, and this is during a heat wave. Repeated calls to our electric provider have been less than helpful; they are trying to locate the problem and fix it. You know what? Jesus knew the problem when we aren’t “working” as we should. We need to know two things: the Scriptures and the power of God. To know the Scriptures, you have to spend time in God’s Word, reading, absorbing it, letting it speak to you personally. To know God’s power, you have to spend time with Him, allowing Him to speak to you and to empower you to do His will on the earth. So, although my house electricity may fail, I don’t ever want the power of God that lives in me to fail. I charge it daily, with time with Him and in His Word. If I’m not connected to Him, then I am not connected to the Source of Life, the Source of all power and whatever I try to do for Him will be in vain. Get connected today! Stay connected. Don’t flicker on and off like you have a power shortage or an electrical problem. I can assure you that if that is the way you are living your life, it is not God who has cut off the supply. You didn’t plug in. Blessings and prayers until next time.
