Empowerment is like good nutrition and health, you can never get too much. The word empower means to give strength, ability, and capability. It comes from two words, “em” meaning “in, into, on, onto” and “power” meaning “ability and strength to act.” You have already been empowered through experi- ences such as your elementary, high school, and college educa- tion. You may have received special training such as universal precautions, first aid, or military training.

Everything you know and do have come because you’ve been empowered by others. There are many occasions when life and new opportunities require additional education and training leading to empowerment. There’s also the necessity to pay attention to our spiritual lives which provides the foundation for everything else that we are doing.

It is not that success in life is impossible without a strong spiri- tual life. It is that success without acknowledging God’s grace, and goodness, with generosity is empty and self-centered. In the book of Joshua, the Scripture speaks of something called “good success.” (Joshua 1:8) It is success inspired of God.

One of the benefits of a strong devotional life is that our hearts become trained to never forget God and to give him glory for all the good things He has empowered us to do and become. We can avoid the condition described in this text, “But when they had grazed, they became full, they were  lled, and their heart was lifted up; therefore they forgot me.” (Hosea 13:6)

A daily devotional time with the Lord is one of the best ways to remember and honor him. This book is a collection of previously published blog posts, contents from sermon notes, and newly written articles.
