What’s the cost of sustainable energy? Our lives as a sacrifice that is Holy and acceptable (Romans 12:1)
Sustain means to build up, to strengthen, to anchor, to support (maintain), and to preserve. Energy, as defined by Dictionary.com is “the capacity to do work” and “any source of usable power.” So then putting the words together goes like this: Connection to God, through Jesus Christ, gives us sustainable energy.
God will sustain us, by His power, to work for His Kingdom and to live, journey through, what seems like insurmountable circumstances. In working for The Kingdom of God, we, as Christians, realize that we are an energy source because we are plugged (connected) to God who is the ultimate and primary source of strength and power (energy). Knowing this, we then understand that our struggles give way to strengthening our connection to God, for as Christ suffered, we must suffer with Him, because it strengthens our faith, our testimony; we are living examples of how Christ’s power in us can destroy strongholds and tear down anything that goes against His Kingdom.
Conservation of Sustainable Energy
Sustainable energy is also about the conservation of energy (power). We conserve energy by staying in communication with God, through Christ, in prayer. Prayer strengthens our connection to God. Studying God’s Word (The Holy Bible) also strengthens our connection to God. The Bible tells us to come boldly before God and ask for what we need, in accordance to His will, and He will give us everything we need to grow, to build up and to replenish our energy to minister, to witness, to those who do not know Him, and to be a light source to other Christians who may be experiencing hard times.
Benefits of Sustainable Energy
God’s energy allows us to have peace in the midst of a storm and to find assurance and protection, by/through faith, to withstand the enemy’s plot to kill, steal, and destroy us; God shields us. God’s sustainable energy gives life! Some of us need to unplug from bad, faulty connections and re-wire ourselves to plug into God. Some of us are so fixated on telling others about our issues instead of taking our issues to God for Him to work out, to fix, to renew, to restore, to make whole, to destroy and tear down strongholds, and to demolish bad connections to people who drain you.
When we plug into the right connection, we find unwavering love, forgiveness of sins, compassion, power (energy), encouragement, freedom from the ties of the enemy, deliverance, miraculous blessings, access to breakthroughs, and renewed minds. Will you unplug from the world’s way and plug into God’s way? Will you choose the right energy source so that you are not depleted of energy (power)?
Remember, depletion of energy, in Spiritual terms, is distress, transgression, depression, anxiety, and Spiritual malnutrition. What are we drinking/eating? Let’s stop putting junk in our mouths because it bleeds into our minds and infects our hearts in that we lose connection or have a very weak connection to God. Change sockets to conserve God’s energy in you so that you will not give up when life issues arise. You will pray and praise, worship and wait in expectation for God to make ways for you!
John 11:25-26 NIV | New International Version

Isaiah 58:11 AMP | Amplified Bible
And the Lord will continually guide you,
And satisfy your soul in scorched and dry places,
And give strength to your bones;
And you will be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail.
