THE SPIRIT LED LIFE by Max Lucado
Max: You don’t have to hurry or scurry. The Spirit-led life does not panic; it trusts. In Ephesians 1:19 and 20 the apostle Paul reminds us that, “God’s power is very great for us who believe. That power is the same as the great strength God used to raise Christ from the dead and put him at his right side in the heavenly world.”
The same hand that pushed the rock from the tomb can shove away your doubt. The same power that stirred the still heart of Christ can stir your flagging faith. The same strength that put Satan on his heels can, and will, defeat Satan in your life. Just keep the power supply open. Who knows, you may soon hear people asking, “What’s gotten into you?” You see, as God’s story becomes our story, his power becomes our power.
From Mike: As you live if you pay attention, it's hard not to see people struggling. In the news and all over the internet the battle with COVID, refugees and the political fighting. But if you look closer, it's much closer to you than the TV or the computer. People at work, at church, and your neighbors. Maybe it's in your own home. Could it be you?
Max challenges us to "keep the power supply open". That power supply is prayer and the Spirit: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 - English Standard Version - "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." God wants to be the vocal point in our lives and wants us to thankful for what he does in our lives. Your prayer needs not be long nor flowery just sincere. Trust Him! Try it! He loves you! That's a guarantee! Remember Max's last statement: You see, as God’s story becomes our story, his power becomes our power.
