John 15:5 “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing”
What are you connected to?
I was at work the other day and this lady was trying to find a USB cord so that she could charge her phone because her battery was about to die. She was asking everyone in the lobby, but no one could help her. She noticed that there was a USB cord behind the counter and asked if she could borrow it. She said, you can keep my phone back there while it charges. I took her phone and she walked away. I went to try and plug it into her phone and it wouldn’t work. I looked at the end of the cord and noticed I had an iPhone charger and her phone was an Android. I had to call her back to the front and let her know it didn’t work because it wasn’t the right power cord. She thanked me for trying and went about her way.
I kind of felt sorry for her, but then all kind of questions start popping in my head like:
Why would you leave home with out your charger?
Do you not keep an extra one on you?
But who hasn’t left their charger at home and likely to have a spare one at all times. I also don’t know her situation.
I started thinking about how in life we sometimes connect to the wrong people or things that will drain the very life out of us. And if we would truly be honest, we have at one time or the other created little god’s out of them as we have looked to them to be the source to fuel the fire that God placed on the inside of us.
Where you are going has a lot to do with what you are connected to. Whether it is people, your job, your church, etc.
I believe being connected to the RIGHT people and things is very important as they are part of pushing your further into your destiny; however they aren’t to replace your relationship and connection through Jesus Christ.
Nothing can generate power unless it is connected to a power source. Even when something is generated by a battery, after awhile even it has to be recharged or replaced in order to keep working.
Not matter what goes on in your life make sure that you stay connected to the source.
