Topic: God Is Your Power Source
Scripture: I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him bears much fruit, for [otherwise] apart from Me [that is, cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing. — John 15:5 (AMP)
Your life in Christ is not a do‑it‑yourself project. In other words, you are not left on your own to solve your problems or meet life’s challenges in your own strength. God is with you. He is your source.
As you grow in your personal relationship with God—spending time talking with Him and studying His Word—you progressively learn to look to God at all times, leaning on His strength rather than your own. You begin to understand that He is your unfailing provider.
Because God is always with you, you have access to everything you need to be victorious in life. Peace, joy, confidence, strength, wisdom, and all the fruit of the Spirit—it’s all available to you in Christ Jesus.
Instead of wondering, How am I going to get everything done? or How am I going to figure this problem out? ask God for His help, strength, and guidance. Trust Him to be your source.
To read: Isaiah 40:29; Ephesians 3:16
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for providing all the strength and grace I need today. Please help me trust that You’re working on the situations where I still have a need, and that You’re always with me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
