This week at the fitness center, I was ready to start my workout on the treadmill, MP3 player loaded with new stuff (including this weekend’s rehearsal music for worship band), ready to roll! As soon as the player loaded, I got a warning: “Low Battery Warning”. I was disappointed that I wasn’t able to listen to music but got over it. I got thinking about the situation — this would make an excellent post on my blog, which hadn’t been updated for a while! Woo Hoo! My mind went into high gear as I worked on the treadmill!
We get a “low battery warning” at times, and need our spiritual battery recharged. I’m sure many of us get this warning. Maybe we haven’t spent time in prayer, maybe we haven’t spent time in the word, maybe…maybe…maybe…I know for fact I get that “low battery warning” at times, life isn’t quite going the way it should! God is nudging me to get in the word! Or to pray for someone He puts on my heart, or to……the list goes on! He’s sending me that “low battery warning” – renew thy self, Dale! Once I “plug in to God” and recharge spiritually, things work much better! Just like my MP3 player, once it was charged up, tada….there was music! Classical organ, jazz, contemporary Christian, hymns, and it goes on.
Once we recharge with God, surrender to Him, get in the word, worship, pray, serve, etc…we are energized, recharged, renewed, refreshed, revitalized! How great is that!
Romans 12:1-2 speaks about a renewal…”do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” WOW! All we need to do is plug into God and we’re recharged! Kinda awesome, isn’t it!
Now, go and get your “low battery” recharged people!
Be Blessed! Dale
