Power

IM000216.JPG“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”   Acts 1:8

Electrical power has a major hold over us. Imagine if all electricity stopped, not for just a few hours or days but forever. There would be no air conditioning and no appliances would work. Candles, lanterns, and flashlights would be our source of limited light. Eventually no cell phones, computers, Nooks would work because recharging them would be impossible.

There is another power we can depend on and it will not go away. That’s the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus’ disciples received that power after Jesus ascended into heaven. The Holy Spirit’s power is given to us when we acknowledge Jesus as Lord and the only Savior.

Throughout the ages writers have always had a degree of power. They’ve influenced leaders, created new ways of thinking, and shaped history.

Christian writers have the extra power of the Holy Spirit behind their writing. Along with having the Spirit within us comes the responsibility of witnessing to “the ends of the earth”. The power inside us flows out into what we put down on paper. It’s a power God will use through what we write.

However, the flow of power stops if we’re not writing. God has messages and ideas He wants us to spread to others. It is our choice if we are going to release that power or put up barriers.

Keep writing, Get the word out. God has given each of us unique messages He expects us to share.

Are you going to stop the flow by not writing?

Dear God, Sometimes I feel like the power in me has dried up. There are times I don’t feel like writing or have absolutely no idea what to write about. Please Lord, re-ignite that power within me so I can once again be the messenger You want me to be.     In Jesus’ Name,   Amen
