For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:6-7
When it comes to our Christian faith, “I can’t” should never cross our minds or our lips. God gave us to power to do all things. When He calls us He will give us the necessary tools to do what He asks. The power is there all we need to do is use it.
I love a few police procedurals, NCIS is one of my favorites but I am always amazed that no one seems to be able to switch on a light. They all use flashlights and will pass right by a light switch but not use it. All that power waiting to bring light to a crime scene and it goes unused.
We do the same thing in our Christian walk, all that power waiting to bring light to the world and we walk around with flashlights. Flashlights, when we have the power of floodlights. God gives us this power when we first believe. We need to let our lights shine.
Have a blessed day,
