My cell phone is wonderful. I do love to use it. I recently read a list of good advice for caring for my phone. In that list of advice, I discovered something I really already believed, but got confirmation. There are real chargers and off brand ones. The off-brand line is much cheaper. They seem to work just fine at a fraction of the cost. The writer went on to say that the company saw many customers with phones that were actually damaged by those cheap, off-brand chargers.
God spoke to my heart – recharging your life is a lot like these phone chargers. Sure there are cheap knock offs that seem to do the trick. You feel better for a while. But the charge won’t last and charging your life by earthly things will actually cause you damage in the long run. Many times I have discovered that I don’t have power to make my life work on my own. But always God’s power becomes perfected in my weakness when I go to Him for help.
Oh beloved, ever feel worn down and without power? That’s when you know you need a recharge. Hobbies, purchases, activities, people all seem to give a high that looks like a recharge. But when it’s all said and done, none of us can hold that charge – we all find ourselves coming up short in the power department. It seems so much easier to just go the cheap route – not taking time to be recharged in true spiritual fashion. But none of us believers have to live a half charged or poorly connected life!
The Lord Himself is your best recharge. He gives liberally to all who come to Him. It will cost you some time, and it might even cost you some money, but this is where your true value lies. In taking good care of your spiritual battery you will find that the charge you receive goes further than you can imagine. In the presence of the Lord is your powerhouse. In His Word is your true connection. Within His gates you will find all you ever need to live a fully charged and optimum life. The things of this world can damage your life, but never will you come up short by connecting to the power of The Only Living God. Your destiny does not lie in having all the world has to offer, but rather in having intimate relationship and time alone connecting to the King of Kings. Within His power house you will receive recharge, but more – you will find your worth, your outlook, your plans and your hope are all connected. Seek the Lord and live – really live!
God loves you and He’s for you. Christ went to the cross and rose from the grave so you can have the life flow always available to you. And amazingly, Holy Spirit keeps the fire going and the connection available wherever you find yourself running low. Run to the King this morning and thank Him for your royal position, as you live fully connected and fully charged in the Light of His wonderful care!
