More and more of the world is turning to renewable forms of energy to power their needs. But in many places, the potential for all this power isn’t being harnessed. Interestingly, that very same phenomenon is happening in our spiritual lives—we're not harnessing the power God has in store for us to live a Christ-like life. How can you change that?

Hi friends, this is Pastor Doug Bachelor. Would you like to hear an amazing fact? More and more of the world is turning now to natural forms of energy to try and find their power and their resorting to things like the wind farm that we have here in Jamaica at Wigton. I remember years ago, my wife and I going to visit the Big Island of Hawaii and we were amazed at all the potential there for natural power but they weren't using it. There at the south part of the island, there was volcanic activity. You can make geothermal power there.

If you went to Waimea, the wind was constantly blowing, but they had no windmills there. If you went over to Kona sun always shines, solar electric, but they didn't have very much solar electric there. If you want to Hilo, it was always raining, hydroelectric. In spite of all that potential for power there on the big island of Hawaii, they were powering the island back then with the dirty diesel generators. Made me think about how we sometimes waste the power of God's Spirit that He's making available to us and each of us can have that spirit if we simply ask. You can read in Zachariah Chapter 10. What do we do? Ask of the Lord rain in a time of the latter rain and He will send flashing clouds.

Jesus also said in the book of Luke, "If you then being evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to them that ask?" When you look in the book of Acts, when the Holy Spirit was poured out, it says there was a sound of a mighty rushing wind and that power that launched the church back then can still power your life today friends. Why don't you ask him?
