Power shortage

There are no power shortages in heaven.

A ripple went through the crowd as the speaker at our missions conference made that statement. We were sitting there in the dark, the speaker preaching from the light of a laptop screen — on account of a power shortage.

What he meant was that God has sufficient power to deal with all our needs. But the statement had an immediacy, a vivid meaning, which the speaker had probably not anticipated. We understood it in a whole new way. The frustrations of this life do not limit God. Out here, in the culture where we are not at home, we are perhaps of as heightened an awareness of spiritual “power” than we are of electrical.
