Rise Up
Pastor David Biewald
1 Corinthians 6:14 (ESV) “And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power.”

Ever feel like you just need an energy boost? I always love watching the Red Bull commercials, with the slogan “Red Bull gives you wings!”. While Red Bull may give us a temporary boost of physical energy, there is nothing like the energy that the Spirit of God provides us. We can feel downcast, weak, and lacking the desire to do anything. During those moments, we also can trust in the power of the Lord to raise us up and cause us to triumph despite how we feel in the moment.

Just as the Lord raised up Jesus, He, too, will raise us up and cause us to be filled with vigor, life, and joy by the power of the Holy Spirit. The best way to receive that is by focusing on the Father during our times of prayer and fasting!

Prayer: Father, raise us up by Your power, allow us to tap into You when we feel weak in our own strength. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
