Our Energy Source
Psalm 55:6 So I said, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.(NIV)
Potential and kinetic energy can and do transfer to each other. Potential energy is added to something by moving it to a higher position to convert it back move to a lower position. In a perfect world P.E. = K. E. but things get in the way and cause friction. So energy has to be added in order to keep things working.
We are not special, we follow the same pattern when we do things in the kingdom. We know we have the potential so we start to work but as we do our work that energy is used up in accomplishing the task and/or some is wasted. Time with Jesus (in that Heavenly Realm) is needed to restore you to full energy.
Jesus, thank You for recharging my energy as I rest in You.
P.S. For you truly science people I “stretched it” with my verse.
The cross picture was taken in Joplin, Mo. to see the poem I wrote, Hope in Joplin.
Ephesians 1:19 His incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms,21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church,23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
Ephesians 2:6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus (NIV)
In science we recognize that energy can take several forms. It is understood that energy is required for you to have power and to do work. One type of energy is gravitational potential energy. Its formula is P.E. = mgh. The “m” is mass, the “g” is gravitational pull and “h” is height; these are multiplied together to give you a value for energy. So for any object the higher it is above the ground the more energy the object has. (Please note how high you are.)
Question: If I am seated with Christ in Heavenly places and have all this potential energy why can’t I use it or it do me any good? Answer: God has given that potential to me (you) and it is there for my (your) use but I (you) move down from that higher energy state to a lower one by my (your) actions or thoughts!
∞God forgive me when I lower my potential from where you have put me; help me to keep my mind set on You.
Note: There is nothing you can do or say (except making Jesus Lord and Savior) to get you in that seat.
