God Speaks about Electricity

      I have recently learned 'dialogue journaling' through my doctorate program and wanted to share with you one conversation that the Lord and I had about I John 2-5.  Dialogue Journaling is the practice of quieting yourself down, fixing your eyes on Jesus, asking him to show you something and then writing it down.  It is writing down your prayers and capturing the flow of His answers.  I have had many super cool adventures with the Lord since making this a daily practice in January.  I plan to share some of the significant ones on this blog.  My words are in regular type, the Lord's responses are italicized.

      By way of summary of these 4 chapters in I John 2-5:  

      Believers are committed to obeying Christ and loving others with the love of God through the Holy Spirit.  Love cannot flow through us if we are not connected to the Lord because God is love.  We are the vessel that allows God’s love to flow through us.   As children of God, we become a reflection of God, that is more and more like Him the more we are in communion with Him.  We are to grow in our Christ-likeness by having victory over sin, loving others and having confident assurance that we are forgiven by God.

        The Lord wants us to know Him enough to have the discernment to recognize false prophets or wrong teaching or worldviews.   We need to have a solid understanding of Truth so we can know and rebuke lies.   We can live our lives with more boldness in Christ the more we have full assurance in the truth for which we believe.   Abiding in Christ is the only way to have this constant assurance.

        Lord, please show me an illustration of what you want me to understand about I John 2-5.

        The Lord showed me electricity. 

         Things that are plugged in to the electricity have the ability to perform as created and designed.  Those same things, unplugged will lay dormant and are impotent to accomplish what they were created to do.

         Then the  Lord showed me an image of the flux capacitor from the “Back to the Future” movies.  This to me represented and energy flow of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and me needing to be connected to it.    (It was cool too because after the journal experience, I looked up the work flux and it means continuous flow!  God is so cool!) 

        See the energy of the ‘flux capacitor’?  You have the privilege of being connected to the energy of the Trinity- God’s perfect will and power.  Stay plugged in!

         Thank for this awesome image Lord.  It’s very helpful. What more do you want me to understand about this word picture?

          The source of My power is endless and always available.  Learn to stay plugged in to it all the time so you don’t miss a single blessing.  The more energy you get from Me, the more you will reflect Me to those I have given you to serve.  You were created in My image to reflect My image to the world.  This is what you can do when you are plugged in. 

           You stay plugged in by keeping your eyes fixed on Me, keeping Me front of mind, including me in all things at all times.  When you pull away from Me, you pull the plug and will disconnect from the power source.  Just like an object that relies on electricity to function, you are dead, impotent to your effectiveness.  Don’t let this happen because it leaves you vulnerable to the enemy and keeps you from accomplishing what I desire.

           Seek Me to plug in at all times.  Your fruit will reveal whether you are connected or disconnected.

           I love it when you give me a helpful metaphor Lord, THANKS. 

           You asked for one.  See how that works?

           Good point Lord.  I’ll remember that!
