You ever tried to ask Siri something and you’re not connected to the Internet? She will hit you with ” Sorry, I’m having trouble connecting to the network”.
That’s like trying to get a prayer through when you have no connection to the Lord.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
John 14:6 NKJV
Jesus is our Internet connection to God. Without Jesus all you get is nonessential information and misdirection. It’s like trying to iron without electricity, you can move the iron over the clothes but they are still wrinkled. You can go through the motions but without a connection, you are wasting time.
Get to know Jesus for yourself. Spend time with him, read the word so your faith can be activated. Reading the word is like plugging your phone in to keep the battery charged. Not reading and hearing the word is like running your battery down. You search everywhere and no one has a plug that fits your phone. You keep checking the battery indicator to see if the battery strength has been used up, waiting for it to shut itself off. You know once that phone dies you feel disconnected, helpless and frustrated. Yup the same thing happens when we allow ourselves to be disconnected from the Lord.
Get your strength up.
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Romans 10:17 NKJV
