How to have Abounding Energy

1. Read your Bible everyday and spend time memorizing and meditating on the Word of God. I spend 30 minutes reading and 30 minutes memorizing every day, with only 6 or 7 misses a year. The Bible mentions over 50 blessings that come into the life of the person who spends time in the Word of God and one of those blessings is energy and strength. Most of what we term energy is emotional, mental and spiritual, not physical in nature. What sucks the energy out of us isn’t work or business, it is anxiety, fear, and worry. Psalms 119:165 says, “those who love Your Word have great peace and nothing causes them to stumble.” Those who faithfully read, study, memorize and meditate on God’s Word honor Him, and those who honor Him, He honors.

2. Spend time with God praying every day using a prayer journal so that your mind doesn’t wander and you don’t fall asleep. If you are faithful to a regular time and place it will become a habit. You can start out with five minutes each day and then gradually add a minute every month or so until you are up to 15 minutes. You can certainly do more but many bog down after fifteen minutes. During your prayer time ask God for strength. The more you ask the more He gives.

Isaiah 40:29-31 He gives strength to the weary,
And to him who lacks might He increases power.
Though youths grow weary and tired,
And vigorous young men stumble badly,
Yet those who wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.

3. Be involved in some kind of ministry that is accomplishing significant things for God. God loves to give His strength and power to those who are serving Him, but He does not give His power to lazy people. The more you serve God the more strength, energy , and passion He will give you.
