The Upper Room 21 February 2024 Devotional: Fully Charged

Read and Study Today’s The Upper Room Daily Devotional for February 21st, 2024 Message written by John R. Robinson (Georgia, USA). God bless you as you study today! Please share with your friends and loved ones.


TODAY’S READING
Isaiah 40:28-31

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
What do I allow to steal my energy and separate me from God?

[The Lord] gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. – Isaiah 40:29 (NIV)

A friend’s car battery was mysteriously losing its charge. The voltage would decrease while the car was parked overnight. After multiple trips to the mechanic, they found a small parasitic draw caused by a short in the wiring that was slowly draining the battery. They repaired the faulty wire, and the battery now stays fully charged.

Our inner spiritual energy supplied by the Holy Spirit likewise can be diminished by the parasitic draw of distractions and idols. Difficult news, social media, pride, grudges, greed, self-sufficiency, desire for recognition and success may all, like that faulty wire, steal our spiritual energy. This can lead us away from our relationship with God, from following Jesus, and from serving others. But prayer, praise and worship, Bible study, and fellowship with Christian friends restore our spiritual energy.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Lord God, thank you for the strength you give us. Help us resist the distractions and idols that sap our connection to you and to others. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS
Those whose spiritual energy is depleted
