Bible Ballistics: “BBs”

As we’ve experienced the snow and ice storms in recent weeks, there have been intermittent and extended periods without “power”.  Inconvenient?  Yes.  No lights, no heat, no internet, no computer.  All because we had NO power!!  We were restricted to that which candles, oil lamps, and batteries provided.

The Lord reminded me how often we walk around “power”less spiritually.  We often allow ourselves to become “unplugged” from God.  We drift away from Him in busy-ness.  We get pre-occupied with activity!!  Have you felt “power”less lately?

Depressed?

Desperate?

Disoriented?

Despondent?

These are signs that we aren’t ‘plugged’ in!!  What do we do? We need to check our “power” source.

Ephesians 6:10-11, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

James 4:8  “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.”

Simple, but profound advice.

Draw near to God,

cleanse our hands,

purify our hearts,

be strong in the Lord,

and be strong or “empowered” by HIS MIGHT.

Put on your armor!! All of it!

So?  Here’s our shot for the day!!

Suit up,

look up,

pray up,

read up (the Bible of course),

so you can STAND up.

So??????  Keep looking up!!! Spend time with GOD!!

Dan. 11:32b “but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” 

Get to know HIM better.

Stay plugged in!!!
