Spiritual Fuel!

Behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. (Prov. 1:23)  

What fuel is to a car, the Holy Spirit is to the believer. He energizes us to stay the course. He motivates us in spite of the obstacles. He keeps us going when the road gets rough. It is the Spirit who comforts us in our distress, who calms us in times of calamity, who becomes our companion in loneliness and grief, who spurs our "intuition" into action, who fills our minds with discernment when we are uneasy about a certain decision. In short, He is our spiritual fuel. When we attempt to operate without Him or to use substitute fuel, all systems grind to a halt. 

Flying Closer to the Flame  

Every single resource on this planet, whether it be man-made or natural, needs some type of fuel for sustenance. It is amazing how God has engineered everything that we know of to be in some type of need of fuel. Without fuel, our human civilization will seize to exist. 

What about spiritual fuel? My dear friends, if I remember correctly, we can probably go without food for about 21 days. We could also go without water for no longer than 3 days. For all intents and purposes, God has placed limitations on our earthly fuel intake by design because His longing is that we tap into the everlasting fuel He has already set apart for us. The name of this "fuel" is called Jesus. Jesus is the Living Water. Jesus is the only one Who can quench our thirst.  He is the only one Who provide us with the spiritual fuel necessary to be able to run the race of faith and experience a triumphant victory. 

Are you desperate need of spiritual fuel for your life? Don't just run to anyone or anything to seek spiritual fuel, seek JESUS. Jesus is the only Person Who can satisfy your thirst and longing. Are you thirsty after a long journey in the "spiritual desert"? Are you longing to develop a more intimate relationship with God and with others? I STRONGLY encourage you to not only seek God's face, but to also find a church of like-minded individuals who are passionate about having an intimate relationship with God and other people. It is only from God Himself and from those who are intimately connected to Him where you will be able to find the spiritual fuel you so desperately need and will want to share with the people God has placed around you. 

Thank you so much for reading this far my friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' mighty name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!!. . . . :-).
