If Jesus, the sinless son of God, felt the need for daily prayer, can you see the need for such prayer in your own life?
Did you get connected this morning? Are you plugged into the power source – God? When we get up in the morning we plug the iron in to press our clothes. We plug in the coffee maker for that cup of coffee . If you are driving a Hybrid car, you must plug it in to drive. We plug in the lamp in order to light up a room. When our cell phone get low, we run to find an outlet to plug it in and get a charged up. The more we go day-in and day-out without being plugged in, we will eventually become depleted.
Well unfortunately, we have forgotten the primary source of being plugged in and that is plugging into the power of prayer to hear from God. Our Father in Heaven longs for us to communicate with him. He and only him has the answers to guide, lead and instruct us in our life journey. If you are not praying first thing in the morning, you are running on empty and your charge is low. It’s not too late, you can plugin and get connected to the ultimate power source NOW. Prayer is a powerful tool that we have been given, but we fail to use it effectively. If you cannot hear from God, you may not be plugged in. If you are tired, restless and weary, you many not be plugged in. If you are seeking direction, you need to be plugged in. If you need a Word, you must be plugged in. If you are in search of your purpose, get plugged in. From Genesis to Revelations Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the major and minor prophets, the disciples and apostles, all plugged into the power source of God. Jesus withdrew to a solitary place and to get plugged into God.
Get connected, get plugged into PRAYER.
We have a promise in the bible that when we approach his throne will hear us – in 1 John 5:13-15, “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the assurance we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us–whatever we ask–we know that we have what we asked of Him.”
