Christ Who Energizes

Him [Christ] we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me. (Colossians 1:28–29)

This passage is too wonderful, I pray that with anointing I would be able to pour out my heart to you so that those who are weak physically, sick, in pain, and many other sufferings would be rejuvenated through the Word of God.  Did you notice the words “I toil with all HIS energy”?  Yes the source of our ENERGY is God!  Paul also said, ‘I can do all things through Jesus Christ who gives me the strength.’  God’s way of rejuvenating your spirit is totally different compared to the way the world chills out. People of the world flush out huge money to go for a few days vacation in a resort nestled in the midst of a vast space of land with trees all around. Acres of land and sand create a sense of space and grant a kind of anonymity that can be very soothing. Swimming in the private courtyard, outside the room and then stretching languorously under the sun on the sand is certainly relaxing.

Living in a world where your life is jam-packed with activities and agenda, such places are means to come in wrung-out and go chilled-out. However, the bliss and ecstasy of the trip is lost the moment you step into the frantic world only to look for the next vacation. Most of the thrill is lost, the moment the bill comes to your hand. Now let me compare it with God’s ways of energizing you, which stirs you up and triggers you to jump up and face the world. Now this joy is not going to leave you so easily! You have the energy in the midst of problems, in the midst of disease, failure or loss. The joy of the Lord becomes your strength!

On December 23, Christmas feast day for Abide School students, the helper I was expecting to come fell sick. Panic! I had to cook special biriyani for the students, someone helped me with cutting and I mustered up the energy from God and started work at the big gas stove, I was not even able to smile on that day of enjoyment because I was totally bushed-out and tired. God may not change the circumstances immediately but He would walk with you and energize you to fulfill the task.  Amen.

God in your life can offer you a whole load of joy than what these ‘beach resorts’ offer you, not to mention the hole that they make in your pocket. The key is to remember that God is in control of all things and at all times! When you remember this and put your trust in God; you will know that there is a bigger picture, and you will be filled with hope and confidence.
