“Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.” ‒ James 4:8 (ESV)
Have you ever looked at your phone and realized you have 1% battery left? I don’t know about you, but I turn into an Olympic sprinter, doing whatever I can to get my phone plugged in and charging.
Let’s look at our spiritual life as a phone battery... a spiritual battery. Just like our phones, our spiritual battery needs to be recharged every day. But how? For our phones, it’s easy, we just plug them in while we’re asleep or driving in the car.
But how do we recharge spiritually? This verse gives us a clue. God is our power source and it’s important that we plug in every day. By spending time in God’s word and in prayer daily, our spiritual battery will recharge and the power of Christ will be at work in us. What a beautiful thing!
