I went to use the remote control yesterday and it was unresponsive. NOT GOOD. Watching TV is all about being lazy so walking to change the channel is completely out of the question. My initial reaction was to go all caveman and smack it. No response. Then I had momentary amnesia and pointed it back at the TV hoping it would magically start working again on its own. Still nothing.
The batteries were dead.
Paul’s prayer for the church in Ephesians 3 goes something like this “That you would be FILLED with the fullness of life and the power that comes from God.” Filled is the key word. In fact, that word implies a constant action. It’s not a one time filling, it’s a constant filling. Keep the batteries charged!
Because we have a constant need. I know this about myself. When I feel empty, I feel different. When I’m empty I’m:
- Road Rage Guy
- Have ZERO tolerance
- But enough about me…
- Get your groove on with some worship music
- Study God’s Word
- Meditate on a single verse
- Take a prayer walk
- Write scripture in a notebook using your own words (One of my favorites)
- Pray, pray, pray!
