Are you on empty? Are you in a desert place or wilderness with nothing "recharging" in sight? What is your source of Fuel? One definition of fuel that I found is ~

To support or stimulate the activity or existence of.
In Psalm 27:13 it says ~
I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Everything that came against David in Psalms 27 he countered it with something postiive... "faith words" if you will. He knew that when the wicked came against him... God will take care of him... he didnt have to be afraid, He was confident in His God, and because of that... Vrs 6 says ~ And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine ememies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord! Praise Fueled his Faith... He knew that without without God (the very essesence of his being... he would not make it... for it was God that had brought him, through, and brought him out, and kept him!) There was even a time in Davids life where " He encouraged himself in God" the enemy had come in and stole EVERYTHING from him.... but yet he encouraged himself in the Lord his God.. and because of that .... He had enough strength to see what God had promised come to pass! ( See 1 Sam chapter 30)
Do you feel like your faith is low? Do you feel like you are so low you dont know your way up... and you want to give up and throw in the towel??? Well dont! God has much bigger plans for you! Dont give up on the brink of your miracle! Dont let the devil have a chair next to you... so he can dwindle your faith down so low you will give up! Start praising the Lord... Sing, pray, meditate, talk with the Lord your God... praise him! Even when you feel like there is nothing to praise God for... there is... Believe me I have been there before... Its not as hard as you think... just praise him for the strength to get up out of bed, for your eyesight, health, mobility, ability to breathe, that you are alive to see another day...etc. whatever you can think of... even those little birds that wait outside your window and sing as loud as they can in the morning... and wake you up...:) Praise him! As you praise him you will start to become freeier with your praise.. and pretty soon... you will feel your faith to rise, and the thoughts of dispair and "giving up" will have disapeared, God is worthy to be praised! Without Him not a one of us would be here! I once was told a story of a great man of God who was going to quit living for God.. he had had enough! He didnt want to fight anymore, he didnt want to hold on to see the rest of his prayers fufilled.. it had been so so long.. but before he left, he relized that there was alot God had done for him in the past so he wanted to stop just a second before he went on with his life without God, and thank him for some of the stuff God had done for him... (talk about a prayer meeting... this is what the devil doesnt want...) He began to thank God and praise him and after awhile he got up off his knees and was ready to fight the devil again, and serve the Lord.... His faith had been refueled! God through your Praise will break the chains in your life, it will heal, save, deliever etc... Praise releases your faith in God... when your faith in God is released... God is able to move for you! Because when you know that you cannot do it... only HE can! and He will.... God can move and work freely!!!! What is your fuel? What do you rely on to keep you going? Is your faith in Jesus (the God of heaven) your fuel? Do you know? Have you heard... that He can and will do anything for you... if you trust and put your life in his hands? Has your fuel evoraped by life???? It doesnt have too... pull up to the source by prayer and praise... and let your faith increase in the Jesus! NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR HIM..... Do you have faith in him for your life's situations and problems???? Have you fueled up today?

"Blessings on You"
