Being the victim of a power outage can be humbling. One minute you have lights and heat, and then quiet, stillness.

As a Christian we have the power of the Holy Spirit. It’s always available. But when we neglect it and do our own thing, the power wanes and at times can be snuffed out.

It’s a sin to grieve the Holy Spirit. This is a part of God. Stay tuned into God. Get to know Him.

Many people who do not really know God nor fully understand the scriptures, try to live out of their own strength and power. The Bible tells us that it is the Holy Spirit’s power that is at work in us that enables us to live differently – to make changes in our lives.

Make sure you’re living with the right power source – God’s Holy Spirit.

Romans 8:26 –  “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.”
