“For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.”
While Patti and I are not in California right now, our home state continues to be beleaguered with power problems. We have returned to a time in the early 2000’s when to keep up with the surges of power demands the power company instituted “rolling blackouts”. I distinctly remember the day when we were told that our area would be affected for an afternoon and after discussing it for a bit, we decided to send everyone home from work. After all, what do you do at a company that makes videogames if you don’t have electricity? We need continuous power as much as anything else if we are to be productive and be able to work. There is a metaphor in here as well; we need continuous power if we are to be productive and want to be able to work.
Where can we find that continuity of power? Well, God tells us that it is in His Word. I was recording a set of Faith Driven Entrepreneur podcasts yesterday and at the end of one of them as we were debriefing, it struck me that on the Zoom call were six people. All of us are very different and from places all over the country, but yet all six of us could tell you what we read or studied in God’s Word that morning. I found that to be very powerful in itself; God’s Word is that alive and thus that filled with power for us each, personally. If we are feeling like we need more power in our lives (power to keep going, to be rejuvenated) a time in His Word is where to go.
