Powered by the Son

I have this ridiculous solar powered flower on my desk - observe how silly it is...
(click here if the video doesn't come through)
So when the light is shining on it, it just does its thing - rocking back and forth and making me smile.
What amazes me is how continuous it is. It just keeps going and going and going...!

A bit like life I think - life and we just keep going and going.
There is never an end to what is asked of us; always moving, hoop jumping, and continuing to put one foot in front of the other...

This silly flowers source of power is the sun - as long as it's shinning it can keep on going.

It is also our source of power...

"Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might..." Ephesians 6:10 NKJV

We are not supposed to do it on our own. We don't have to do it on our own.
We're not called to "charge our batteries" on Sunday in a good worship service and attempt to run on that for the rest of the week.
Nope, we just need to be sure we're near the Son and He will provide all the power we need! Continuously! 
Just as this flower will never exhaust the power of the sun nor can we ever exhaust the bountiful stores of His love, grace, and strength for our lives! How amazing and encouraging is that?

So good!!! We are to rely on the Power of the Son for everything. And His Power will never run out, so we can keep going. Total dependence on God is what He wants. Amen!
Oh, the flower makes me smile too. I think I need one of those. Where did you get it?
