What energy do you employ for residing your life? Do you belief the facility of espresso or vitality drinks to select you up or is your secret power primarily based on chocolate? Or possibly you depend on pure stubbornness? Managing your life is just not a foul factor, and the way might it’s, proper? However once we pressure ourselves to proceed past exhaustion, we’re not doing ourselves any favors. Could I remind you of the heavenly energy at work in all who imagine in Jesus? Use the facility you’ve acquired! Similar to religion, it’s God’s reward for his kids.

“Pay attention rigorously: I’m sending the Promise of My Father [the Holy Spirit] upon you; however you’re to stay within the metropolis [of Jerusalem] till you’re clothed (absolutely geared up) with energy from on excessive.” (Luke 24:49, AMP, emphasis added)

Right here Jesus promised his followers to grow to be absolutely geared up with energy from on excessive. This was not simply meant for the disciples, however for all who observe Jesus. Now we have not been left to handle on our personal units however by the facility of God. And that does change every part.

As a result of we’re unable to proceed on our power. We’re exhausted already within the morning. How then will we handle the remainder of the day? If we by some means handle to deal with our day-to-day operations, the place will we get the vitality to observe wherever Jesus leads us? And why will we even attempt to handle on our personal if we’re provided divine energy to what nothing compares?

This divine energy, the Holy Spirit, may also help us in each manner and each scenario. And this isn’t some form of brute pressure, that is mild, encouraging power that equips us to take care of life because it comes. It doesn’t take away the hardships however empowers us to dwell via them victoriously.

Use the facility you’ve acquired!

Our drawback is just not that we’d be under-equipped or missing divine energy. Similar to religion, divine energy is a present from God. Our drawback is the under-utilization of divine energy. We refuse the divine energy, possibly as a result of we’re unaware or too cussed to confess our want. It doesn’t matter what our purpose for refusing it’s, it doesn’t repay.

So remind your self every morning of God’s love and resurrection energy. Use the facility you’ve acquired! You’re not a greater Christian if you don’t use God’s energy. Possibly the alternative. As a result of once we use it, we stay in God’s presence and that’s what God needs from us. That we’d keep near him. And, with God, we get a lot extra performed, with out dying from exhaustion.

The yoke Jesus provides us is mild to bear as a result of he equips us together with his divine energy. So let’s obtain God’s items – each salvation and empowerment – with thanks. Then we get to stroll flippantly and we’ll make it house to heaven, not by our benefit however by the benefit of Christ and by his energy.

Expensive Heavenly Father,
We give up to you and thanks for saving and empowering us.
With out you, we’d not make it
however how great it’s that we don’t must handle with our meager power
since you equip and empower us.
Present us how one can use your energy based on your will.
In Jesus’ title,


How is it? Do you employ the facility you’ve acquired? I hope so! In any other case, the Christian journey is simply too heavy. However within the energy of the Holy Spirit, we are able to stroll flippantly and worry-free. Be blessed, my buddy! God loves you, saves you, and equips you with every part it’s essential to get house. Use the facility you’ve acquired and you’ll notice God is aware of what he’s doing.
