My iPhone amazes me sometimes for the many things it can do. It’s like a mini computer, music player, camera, alarm clock, etc. But when the battery’s dead, all those capabilities are useless so I don’t want it to go dead. Every so often, I’m checking my battery level. I’m seeing a mental picture of my charging wire and I’m longing to plug my phone to the wall because I don’t want my phone to shut down while I’m in the middle of something I need to accomplish.
If I don’t plug soon, my battery will die down. The more apps I need to use, the more urgent I need to charge.
I am like that phone. I need to plug into The Source of All, God. Apart from Him, I can do nothing. The more I need to do, the more urgently I need to be running on God’s power, not my limited kind. As I long to plug the phone, I long to plug myself to God to restore, refill, refuel me. Because just in case I forget, apart from Him I can do nothing if I missed understanding that fact the first time I recalled it.
Jesus is like that wire through whom I can be connected to God.
Do you see the very powerful promise tucked away in the above passage?
Lord, I praise You for Your limitless strength and power. Thank You that You give wisdom to those who ask without finding fault. You are the Source of strength, ability, wealth, position, and everything else. Help me to remain in You. I know that fruit-bearing is a function of remaining in You. Help me to be fruitful in things that count with You. Much love, Your little child in me.
