Low Battery?

by | Jan 5, 2017 | Igniting Influence

One of the most familiar symbols in our lives is the one indicating Low Battery. If we don’t pay attention to them, our devices go black. Our clocks go dark. Our calendars and schedules go silent. These batteries require recharging.

It’s panic-inducing to think about not having our devices charged and ready for action. We are paralyzed without them.

Do I respond in the same way when my spiritual battery gets low? Do I attempt to go too long without a recharge? Am I just giving God lip-service? “Lord bless my plans,” I might say. Instead, I should say, “Father, what are your plans today? Help me be ever sensitive to you and your leading. I am your servant. Your plans override mine.”

I want to depend on the Lord for my schedule and seek His agenda above my own. I want Him to guide and direct me. I want that sense of panic when I realize I haven’t checked in with Him in the past hour. I want Him to be ever on my mind.

Luke 10:27 says, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all strength and with all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself.”

  1. How do you know your spiritual battery is low?
  2. When are you self-sufficient?
  3. How often do you go to the “red zone” in your life?
