I’ve started driving recently and learnt something from this new experience.
It is instinctive for drivers to search for a petrol kiosk for a fill-up when the car indicates that it is running low on fuel.
Naturally, drivers do so because cars rely on petrol for power and to operate.
Without power, cars are almost useless.
Holy Spirit is our source of power
Similarly, we humans need power. And as Christians, we’ve acknowledged and embraced the Holy Spirit as that source.
We draw power being in His presence; renewing our visions, purposes in life and reviving our souls as we basked in the love of God.
But how many of us can truthfully say that we instinctly approach the Holy Spirit when we feel dry or low in our ‘fuel tank’?
And unlike, a car which has an fuel indicator to precisely alert us, we do not have such a mechanism in place.
Hence, many burn out and crash spiritually before even realising that they are low in power.
Drawing power from the Holy Spirit
Today, make it a habit to plug into the presence of the Holy Spirit on a regular basis to draw power and to avoid any case of a burn out.
Equally important is for us to recognise our personal tell-tale signs of a low ‘fuel tank’ in our lives. So when the signs appear, instinctively we will look to Him for a fill-up.
Jesus said, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
All of us, regardless if we believe in Him or not, need His power for a successful and purposeful life. Without Him, we are almost useless.
And the amazing truth is that His power is ever readily available and accessible anytime and anywhere.
So what are you waiting for? Get your power up today.
