23 Oct Plugged in.
Have you ever considered the importance of being plugged in? A lamp is still a lamp even if its not plugged in to the wall, but if it is not plugged in, it has no power and will not light up no matter how many times you flip the switch.
We have all sorts of goodies, chargers, and tech that is all fine and dandy… But if it is not connected to a power source, it becomes useless to us. Without power, cell phones are just paper weights, TV’s are just dark mirrors, and light bulbs are just cool shaped glass.
The power source behind those things is what makes them useful.
Now I want you to consider this thought, we as humans are like a really cool piece of tech, but we cannot be used to our full potential without being connected to the power source.
Friends, Jesus is our power source. Our time spent soaking in his presence charges us up, so we can go into the world and shine His light! When we sit down, and open up the bible to read His words, we gain energy spiritually. In Matthew 4:4 Jesus says “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” That means that God’s word feeds and nourishes us. It is sustenance for our spirit. But the longer we take in-between our time spent with the Lord, the less energy we have, the lower we run on our batteries…
Don’t let those batteries die, get plugged into the source! Let the Lord fill you with peace, love, and joy. Get some time in His presence everyday, and let him daily energize you and charge you up!
Friends, let me just encourage you today. Pick up your bible, take a few minutes and just be with Jesus. Don’t bring an agenda, just spend time with Him. He desires to use you, all He is looking for is a willing heart. If you fill take just a few minutes a day to say God, use me for your glory, he will do exactly that. He will make you extremely useful in His kingdom, and you will see God’s power and love flow through you.
Love you all,
Isaiah 6:8 says “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said “ Here I am. Send me!”
Notice two things in that verse…
- Isaiah was plugged in. He was in the presence of the Lord.
- Isaiah was willing to be used by the Lord. He declares “SEND ME!”
Take a few minutes and journal about a couple of these next questions:
- How are your batteries doing?
- Are you willing to be sent by the Lord?
- What do you think God is sending you to do in this season of your life?
