“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12
I have one of those little portable chargers for my phone or tablet that I always carry with me. You know the kind. You charge it overnight so that it’s ready in a pinch to recharge my technology when needed even if there is no plug in power source available.
I see it often, as I’m sure you do, when traveling with family, companions, or whoever – we go to restaurants and other places, and the first thing people look for is to see if there’s a plug close by to recharge their phones. It’s almost a necessary evil if you want to call it that. Phones are very important in our world. I consider mine to be a little, portable handheld computer at times.
If I can’t reach a plug, then out comes my little portable friend to the rescue because most of us absolutely need a power source.
That’s why I love God’s Word so much. There is no greater resource than having His holy breathed inspiration speaking directly to my life no matter what’s going on. If I’m wrong, it tells me so. If I need encouragement, it speaks hope. If I need joy, it opens up psalms. It shows me how to bless others, love others, and desire a deeper relationship with God. Some chunks of the Word are hard to swallow, and some are sweet as honey. But all are a power source to live by.
Don’t ignore the power source of God’s Word that has the answer to every problem and situation in life that arises. Any solution the world has is of the flesh and it won’t profit. But, Jesus said, “The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life,” (John 6:63).
In God’s Word, there is truth, revelation, and power! Are you hooked up to the right power source? Where you plug in at; where you get your resources and information, your inspiration for life matters more than most people realize. Fill your life and thoughts with useless fillers and you remain on empty. But if you get connected to true power, you are able to run this race and fulfil the destiny God has ordered for you.
