My phone connected to my car like usual, and the podcast I had listened to last begin playing through the speakers. I saw my charging cord and thought, why not get a little more charge to my phone on the way to work. So, I connected my phone to the cord. When I arrived at work and disconnected my phone from the charging cord, I noticed it had not charged at all. Weird!
Not weird, once I realized that my charging cord had not been connected to the charging port. I had simply gone through the motions; expected powerful results without being connected to the power source.
This is how we live life sometimes. We go through the motions, but until we are truly plugged into The Source of Life, we will never have powerful living! God wants us to recharge our batteries, and remain connected with Him.
John 15:5 “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.”
Have you ever felt disconnected from God? It isn’t because He has changed addresses or moved away from us. It is because we are not connecting with Him. It is never too late to pick up where you left off. Take a moment to charge your spiritual battery. God is waiting.
