Encountering the power of God. Have you ever had your cell phone battery die? It always happens at the worst possible moment. It is when we are talking to our boss or an important text needs to be sent.
We run out of power spiritually because we are running on our own power source.
John 15:4-8 New International Version (NIV)
4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
We have all had moments when we are the branch… Ask whatever you wish and it will be done for you. What an incredible promise. Stay close to HIM. I want to be someone that is know for being plugged into to ultimate power source.
