She wasnít crazy about getting up, breaking camp, donning a backpack or walking uphill, but my secret weapon always helped her.

My daughter could out walk me during the day, but morning wasnít her specialty. Eating breakfast, stuffing her sleeping bag, packing the tent and her backpack were accomplished in slow motion. Headache and stomachaches were also common.

Since we had time constraints on the miles we hiked to our destination, time was precious. But I had one thing that increased her energy and picked up her pace: M & Mís. One pack of these colored marvels and sheíd leave me, headaches and stomachaches behind.

Power energizes, and the early church needed it to accomplish their assigned mission of telling the world about Jesusí sacrifice on Calvary and his ensuing resurrection. But Jesus cautioned them not to attempt the task prematurely: You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8).

Jesusí early followers probably wondered how theyíd complete an apparent impossible undertaking. Iíve wondered the same with jobs God has assigned me. And none of our God given duties can be apart from the power of his Spirit. He indwells permanently and thoroughly and supplies the energy and wisdom to do whatever God asks. Teach a class. No problem. Love an unlovable co-worker. Not an issue. Give to Godís work when the bank account is low. Easily accomplished.

The list may appear endless but seeking Godís direction and depending on the power he supplies always results in success. What has God asked of you that youíve been afraid to do?

Prayer: God, enable us to trust Your power to help us accomplish what You ask. www.lovelinesfromgod.com

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
