Plug Into Power

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life.

II Peter 1:2,3

If mechanical ability is a gift, I guess I didn’t get it. I do know if a machine has a plug, it must be  inserted in a socket  before the machine will work.  I have also  grasped that there is an “on and off”  switch. Beyond that I usually need to read the directions. But some Christians don’t even get to the point  of plugging in the plug or turning on the switch. They often try to live their lives  without Christ’s power-and end up missing  out on His grace and peace. If we interpret our past  without calling on His power to heal our wounds, we will continually be turned off.

You may have had parents or significant others  who constantly gave the message,”You are not good enough!” You may have had parents who pretended like you didn’t exist or acted as if you didn’t matter. You may have holes in your soul from your past. But Christ offers you the power to break free of all of your past if you will just “plug in” to Him. There will be plenty of work  for you to do, and Christ will use other people to help you. But he will be the underlying  Power Source, causing “grace and peace” to be multiplied to you.

Thought:  I will plug into my Higher Power-Jesus Christ-today, so I can heal the pain of my past.
