The clock in my bathroom started losing time. At first it was just a little behind. Then the second hand became stuck on one number and refused to move! I was happy to know that this problem had a simple solution — the clock needed a new battery.
As a Christian, our power supply is God. We need to stay connected to God so we can obey Him and be a good witness to others. But sometimes we allow things into our lives that block God’s power. Maybe we neglect our prayer and Bible reading time. Or maybe we become influenced by our friends in the world.
Paul reminds us in our Bible verses for today that our strength does not come from ourselves. Our strength comes from God. He helped Paul to be satisfied with his circumstances in life. And He gave Paul courage to share the Good News with others.
Stay connected to God today. He will be with you and give you what you need.
