For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7
Are there any Star Wars fans out there? I watched Star Wars so many times when I was a kid, I could repeat every line. Even in my pre-Christian days I was searching for something special in the universe. Something to give it all meaning. In Star Wars, the controlling power behind everything is called “the force.”
Millions of people connected with this movie because of the spiritual idea that there is more than we can see. We know instinctively, there is more out there. And let’s not forget the popularity of the X-files tag line—The truth is out there.
The truth is out there. The heavens declare the glory of God so that no one can deny His existence. When we call on the name of Jesus, we have access to the greatest power in the universe. May the force be with you.
Dear Lord, thank you for the power of Your name. You are the only good spiritual force in this universe. Help us to stay connected to You always. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
