Power Outage

I was listening to iHeartRADIO when one of their Internet DJs shared how her family reacted when they had recently experienced a 2-hour power outage during a thunder storm. Beyond the obvious results of electrical power outages, computers went dead. Internet-based news cycles could not be accessed. One work-at-home family member was a web designer. No power; no web design activity.

Life came to a screeching halt when there was no access to electrical power. But consider what would life be without the other power source ___ the Holy Spirit. The impact of such an event would impact a person far beyond two hours. In fact, it would be a lifetime and an eternity impact.

When a person places his or her faith in Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit is imparted to us. That Spirit is then available to lead us, guide us and help us. The good news is that there is never a power outage or “removal” of the Holy Spirit if we continue to seek the direction of the Spirit through Scripture, prayer and fellowship with other believers.

With the Holy Spirit in our lives, one’s life can never come to a screeching halt! Life is more exciting than any computer game, more important than any news cycle spreading gloom and doom, and is perfectly designed.

Have a Holy Spirit powered day!
