Energy within the Calm – A Devotional by Alisha Ritchie

“…Be nonetheless, and know that I’m God…” Psalm 46:10 NIV

The lights within the den flicker on and off twice, then whole darkness settles over my home.  The alarm system makes the acquainted fading beeping noise signaling energy is misplaced.  No electrical energy is being transported to us on this scorching, summer time morning.

Soiled dishes wait by the sink to be loaded within the dishwasher.  Mud on the ground beckons to be vacuumed up.  Bacon and eggs are but to be fried on the range.  All this must wait.  No energy equals no housekeeping for me proper now.

I seize my Bible, devotional e-book, and pen and stroll to the eating room the place the big window is casting brilliant daylight onto the desk.  I snuggle into the chair and spend the subsequent thirty minutes delving into God’s Phrase.  My devotion speaks of God because the Healer of our brokenness-in our our bodies, minds, hearts, lives, and relationships.  I learn Scripture from James and Matthew after which speak to God, actually speak to Him, pouring out my coronary heart and soul, my worries and praises.

As my quiet time involves an in depth, I really feel rejuvenated.  My spirit is sparked, charged, as I’m able to tackle the day.  It’s nearly as if I’ve turn into electrified by being in God’s presence.  I’m keenly conscious of God’s energy within me, the identical energy that raised Jesus from the lifeless and saved me from the powers of Hell.

How superior and ironic it’s to assume that I needed to lose energy to realize energy from God.  I needed to lose {the electrical} present circulation to my dwelling to understand how desperately I wanted God’s energy circulation to me that day.  Having no electrical energy enabled me to take the time to be quiet and nonetheless for a short time, simply absorbing God’s love and presence as I discovered extra about Him.  By spending time in prayer and learning the Bible, He geared up me with the vitality, encouragement, and love wanted to face the day.  By being power-much less, I grew to become power-ful, via Him.

God has a novel means of getting my consideration typically.  I’m so grateful He cares sufficient to proceed to pursue me and information me in the suitable route, whilst I’m surrounded in full darkness with numerous chores to be accomplished on my to do listing.  He reveals me there may be at all times time to be nonetheless and know that He’s God, in all circumstances.

Heavenly Father, You might be my Creator, my Pal, my Redeemer.  Thanks for the numerous blessings You give me each day, particularly the chance to speak with You and share my needs, burdens, and requests.  Information me in resolving to make spending time with You every day a precedence.  In Jesus’ title I pray, Amen.”
