1 John 4:1 NASB "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world."They had sat all winter long, so I needed to test them! Today's verse is some great advice concerning dealing with others who may not have our best interest in mind. I had pulled the toys out for my grandson to play with but the only problem was that I wasn't sure how the batteries had held up all winter long. I needed to pull them out and test them to see if we were getting full power or just a little trickle. Sure enough, they had lost their usefulness and needed to be replaced. The sad realty is that some people in our lives aren't helping us live to our full potential in Christ. We need the power of the Holy Spirit and His Full power to keep on keeping on so let's be careful in whom we put our trust. I know Someone who will always be there for us and will always help us live with our batteries fully charged! The question is... do you know Him?! peace, tom
