Power Without End

 

 

“For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” – Hebrews 4:12

A family I know was just about to leave the house to go to church when all the lights went out–the city was experiencing a power failure. No problem, they thought. When we come back from church it will be restored. Then it occurred to them they couldn’t leave–they had an automatic garage door that opened on electricity. So there they stood, thwarted by a power failure.

An electrical power failure causes problems every which way you turn. The same is true of a power failure within our lives. But unlike a failing electricity source, the Bible is very clear that there’s always an abundance of power available to see us through even the most trying and difficult circumstances.

For the Christian, the source of power is God, and God never runs out of power or fails in anything. If that’s true, how can there ever be a spiritual power failure in a believer’s life? The problem arises when we get cut off from the power supply. And one of the primary means by which God transmits His mighty power to His people is through His Word. The Word of God is food that sustains and empowers our soul and spirit.

The apostle Paul spoke of being nourished upon the words of faith. How goes it with you? Are you making time each day to nourish your soul on the Word of God? Don’t let a power failure happen in your life.

Prayer

Lord, thank You for Your life-giving Word. Amen.

To Ponder

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.
