You and I are quite a bit like that when it comes to our spiritual "batteries". We need to remain connected to our power source in order to maintain spiritual health! And what is our source of power? It's God Himself! But all too often, we allow ourselves to become disconnected from that source of power, and when that happens the results are inevitable. No matter how robust your spiritual health is, if you unplug it, it's only a matter of time before that battery begins to drain. We even wonder occasionally why our spiritual vitality seems to have slipped into a territory known as Lethargy. More often than not, the answer is simple...we've become unplugged; disconnected.
Fortunately, the fix for my computer was a simple one--I found and ordered a new power cable that would ensure my computer stayed connected to the power source when it was plugged in. Problem solved! And fortunately, when we become disconnected from the source of our spiritual power, the solution is just as simple--it's time to get reconnected! Our God is always ready to spend time with us in prayer. His Word is always available for us to draw upon. How about you? How connected are you to your power source?
