Devotional – Recharge with the Spirit of God Daily

Recharge with the Spirit of God daily!

I found this devotional at Harvest Ministries very practical and yet very powerful...

The example is given of someone purchasing a new car and driving around until the car stalls and needs to be towed to the dealer. The owner declares he has a lemon, but the dealer tells him the car is out of gas. The owner then replies that he thought it was electric powered and the dealer tells him it is not and that he needs to refuel regularly!

Well, just as we need to refuel our vehicles on a regular basis to keep them running... we also need to recharge our Christian lives with the Spirit of God to stay energized and live successful!

Harvest Ministries had this to say...

"You need to be filled with the Spirit.

This is not just a one-time event. Ephesians 5 tells us, "Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs . . ." (Ephesians 5:18–19). From the original language, this verse could be translated, "Be constantly filled with the Spirit." We need to get refills from God.

Contextually, this statement in Ephesians 5 goes on to address the family, talking about husbands and wives and fathers and mothers. So God is saying, in effect, that if you want to be a good husband, then you need to be filled with the Spirit. If you want to be a good wife, then be filled with the Spirit. If you want to be a good parent, then be filled with the Spirit.

We need God's help to do everything He has called us to do." (read complete devotional here)

 

If God provides us with a way to recharge and tells us to do it... then why not do it?

"And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord."
-- Ephesians 5:18-19

Have you recharged with the Spirit of God yet today?

Be filled with the Spirit and encourage those you love...
