boost of power from God

I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God's power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God's right hand in the heavenly realms.

Do you ever need a re-charge?  That is something to get you going or keep you going.  Maybe you have tried that 5 Hour Energy thing or some energy drink.  But often the power we need is something bigger and more powerful that a boost of something legal or illegal.

I can always rely on God.  His power is what we really need.  If you know Him, you know that He can give you the best kind of boost and day brightener.  

This past weekend through our back2school outreach I got a shot of power, energy, strength, excitement and much more.  You understand that.  You understand that especially if you were here or were following the happenings.  Watching the kids and being around our volunteers was the best legal upper you could ever find.

Standing near the stage Sunday morning after worship was so sweet, but I got another shot as a teenage guy walked up to me and was ready to ask Jesus into his heart at that moment.  That is big time energy.

You've got to understand that I get tired.  Maybe you do too.  Staying busy.  Burning the candle at both ends.  You name it and even Christians have to deal with the fact that we have to maximize the boosts of energy that God gives us.  Take the next two verses and ask yourself the question: where am I getting my energy from?

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.

Seeing somebody meet Jesus gives us a boost of power.  It is like being at the NASCAR race, at least for me.  Being around those fast cars and loud motors, I want to go fast.  I love that power and thrive on helping people meet Jesus.

"Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."

That verse doesn't use the word power, but it does.  When we stop and spend a few minutes or a day with God, He will power you up.  He will recharge your spiritual battery and your physical need for strength.

If you are like me, you need the power of God to see you through each and every day.  Let God give you energy, re-charge your battery and help you go higher with Him.  There is nothing like a boost of power from God.

For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God's power.
