The Real Source of Power

By   •   October 9   •   Topics: ,

A man or a woman who has been focusing all attention on financial gains, or business, or social prestige, or who has centered all his affection on some one person, experiences a devastating sense of loss when denied the thing that has given life its meaning. In these tragic moments, the individual recognizes how terribly and completely alone he is.

In that moment the Holy Spirit may cause the worldly bandages to fall from his eyes so that he sees clearly for the first time. He recognizes that God is the only source of real power, and the only enduring fountainhead of love and companionship.

What gives your life meaning? Listen to this Billy Graham message about turning away from worldly pleasures. 

Prayer for the day

From out of the depths, Lord, my eyes have seen that only You are unchanging, eternal love. Help me to put You first in everything I do.

    I find myself again at a crossroad in my life. My health is a concern along with age. I stay in His word and am thankful. As Job and so many others said, “The Lord gives and He takes away; blessed be the name of THE LORD…”
