ENERGIZED FOR LIFE - JULY 11

Be energetic in your life of salvation, reverent and
sensitive before God. That energy is God's energy,
an energy deep within you, God himself willing and
working at what will give him the most pleasure.
- Philippians 2:12-13 MSG

     Are you fired with enthusiasm for Christ? If so, congratulations, and keep up the good work! But, if your spiritual batteries are running low, then perhaps you're spending too much energy working for yourself and not enough energy working for God.
     If you're feeling tired or troubled, or both, don't despair. Instead, seek strength from the source that never fails; that source, of course, is your Heavenly Father. And rest assured—when you sincerely petition Him, He will give you all the strength you need to live victoriously for Him.

God doesn't camouflage the old; he restores the new. The Master Builder will pull out the original plan and restore it. He will restore the vigor, he will restore the energy. He will restore the hope. He will restore the soul.
