God wants us to push forward in this life and He has given us an example that can be a constant source of encouragement. But we’ve all been at this place before. We make a decision to change our life, we know the “BIG PICTURE” verses that talk about following God – finding joy in Him – and all that other greeting card stuff. But how do we practically make that happen?
Let me tell you a secret about practical: It’s BORING. Don’t think so? If you are single or if you can remember back to when you were single – picture this: Your friends keep trying to fix you up with someone and they’re all excited about this new person they want you to date. And when the describe him to you they say, “He’s practical”. Get’s your heart racing now doesn’t it? But for those of you who’ve endured exciting, impractical relationships before, practical doesn’t sound half bad. But is still doesn’t excite you. But practical is necessary for success.
It’s definition is: Likely to succeed or be effective in real circumstances
So if you want to be successful in your spiritual life, you’re going to have to make some practical choices. If you want to RECHARGE, you need to plug in to the right source.
