Power

All computers need a power source. They need electricity. A computer needs to be connected to an electrical outlet or a battery. Without a power source, a computer is useless.

As Christians, God is our power source. We need to stay connected to God so that we have access to His strength, wisdom, knowledge, character and love. Without God’s power, we become useless, powerless Christians.

Prayer is like a power cord that keeps us connected to God. We need to communicate with God every day. We also need to pay attention to His teachings by reading the Bible.

We also need to keep sin out of our lives. Sin is the one thing that keeps us separated from God and His power. Psalm 66:17-19 talks about that. “I cried to him for help, and I praised him. If I had been hiding sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened to me. But God did listen to me; he heard my prayer.” When we do something wrong, we need to tell God about it right away. Then we need to ask God to forgive us. When we do this, we will be connected again to God and His power.

God will be with you today. When you sin, ask Him to forgive you. Keep connected to His power
