Wind turbines can generate electric power anywhere the wind is blowing strong and steady.  The momentum of the moving air propels the large blades that are attached to the source that produces the electric energy.

Prayer generates power when you tap into the right source.  The momentum doesn’t come from our power but the one who’s being prayed to.

“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.  And if we know that he ears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of him.” (1John 5:14-15, NIV)

Prayer is not used as if we have a “secret formula”…it’s not based on how we pray, if we use fancy words, pray in a certain place, or repeat the same prayer over and over (Matthew 6:5).

It’s the source of the power that we should seek…  “Because you have so little faith.  I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move.  Nothing will be impossible for you.”  (Matthew 17:20, NIV)

“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.  On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5, NIV)

Plug into the Power Source…He’s electrifying.  ~Deb

Recharge

I think one of the best inventions ever… the battery charger.  Whoever invented this baby was a genius.  You load your used batteries in; plug it into an electrical source and recharge them to use again.

I know that you may think I’m a bit theatrical here, but if you have children you know what I’m talking about!

We need to be recharged as believers too.  The daily grind of life; family, work and home.  It can take a toll on you day after day.  It’s easy to lose your focus.  Our energy is depleted.

How do we recharge?  Our power source…God’s Holy Word.  Every morning we must plug in and allow the spirit to recharge us.       

This recharging has a huge effect on our day.  We need to be plugged in so we’re able to hear his voice and allow Him to guide our steps.

If we fail to recharge each day we will fall victim to our own ways and recourses.  We must stay connected to Him and allow His spirit to direct us each day.  His word will direct us to God’s purpose…not ours! ~Debra

“Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust inYou.  Show me the way I should go, for to You I lift up my soul.”  Psalm 143:8
