My Power Source

The light bulb. Amazing device. Incredible invention.
Even a small watt light bulb has the ability to light a large space.
There is no doubt that the light bulb has changed the American standard
of living forever. I don't know about you, but I have taken this little bulb for
granted. I have often forgotten it's incredible potential to light my way.

However, in and of itself this light bulb is worthless. It has not reached it's full
potential. In it's current state it is ineffective and frankly, of little use. There is nothing
I can do to make it shed any light. I can't will it to shed light. I can't put it with other bulbs hoping to make it produce light. In fact the truth is, the only thing that can make this light
bulb arrive at it's full potential, is it's Power Source.

However plugged into it's power source, the possibilities are endless. One small light bulb can shed light into an entire room. Total darkness is obliterated by the power source of the light bulb.
Our precious Heavenly Father is the Power Source for His children, through the saving grace of His Son, Jesus Christ. Until the day that I accepted the free gift of Salvation, I too was living in total darkness. There was no light. I had no power. I, like the light bulb was ineffective and frankly of little use. The day I accepted God's gift of Salvation, I tapped into my Power Source. I now have unlimited power for the Master's use. I can shed light where ever I go. However, I must stay tapped into my Power Source.

The Power Source I am referring to is the Word of God. The living truth. I am as ineffective and powerless as an unlit light bulb without it. See, I have no strength in and of myself. I must be filled with the Spirit through the reading of His word to have any power in my life. If I rely on my family, friends, church, etc. to meet my emotional and spiritual needs, I will be disappointed. My joy and strength must come from the Lord.
I must read my Bible. Digest it. Meditate on it. It is my constant source of strength.It is my comfort. My guide. It is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. I am powerless without it. I shall defend it and uphold it as the final authority in my life in all matters of faith and practice.I will fight for it and not be ashamed of it. I will proclaim it and hide it's word in my heart. It is the most precious possession I own, and I am eternally grateful for it's life changing power. It shall take me eternity to praise Him for it. Men have died for it and Mother's have wept on it. Soldiers have carried it and Countries have been founded on it. I praise God that it's words will not come back void. It is my Bible, a love letter from my Heavenly Father. May it's words burn in my heart.
By His Grace,
