Plug into the Power Source

God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect (2 Samuel 22:33, KJV).

As I turned toward the mobile home park, everything became dark. At the corner a car sat upended.

An eerie feeling came over me as I drove into the park. How will I find the keyhole? I pondered. However, just as I arrived at the door, the lights came on.

The next day I saw a policeman. “We had no lights on Marine Drive when I came home last night,” I said. Do you know what happened?”

“We got the man in the tank,” he said. That man drank so much that he did not make the corner. He was probably going too fast. I wonder that he made it out alive.”

Driving into the electric pole, storms, and other things can cut off the power source. If people depend on electric heaters, they shiver in the cold. An electric water heater without power leaves one in the cold.

A far greater power source is available to us. An electric appliance proves worthless if not plugged into the power source. Let us plug into the divine power source.

Sin cuts off this power in our lives. The sin of unbelief makes it unavailable to us. A person without the Saviour cannot tap into the might of the Almighty. However, when he confesses he is a sinner and accepts Jesus Christ as His Saviour, he becomes a child of God. Then on his knees he can reach this source.

Lack of faith will hinder a believer’s prayers. When he confesses his sins, God forgives him. Then he can plug into the divine power source.

Unforgiveness will also cut us off. When we confess our sin and then forgive others, we have plugged in again.

Pride reared its ugly head in the garden of Eden. “You can be like gods. You can know good and evil,” the serpent whispered. However, the devil did not tell them that haughtiness keeps us from the power to do good and not evil.

Plug into the divine power source. God will delight to fill you with His Spirit. He can do great things through you.

He longs to impart the fruit of the Spirit in us: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. With the source of power within you, God is unlimited in what He can do through you.

Someone said, “It is not what we do for God that counts, but what we are—our character. Remember, no matter what our past life, God will forgive, make us clean, and a new person in Christ.

All of us at times had the strength cut off in our lives. When we get rid of whatever blocks it, we can plug into the divine power source. Then God will work mightily in our lives.
