Do you ever feel “gased” in life?  “exhausted”?  Like you are running on spiritual and emotional “fumes”??

“On empty” … (click the sound byte above)
Bible verses about stress and spiritual and emotional strength

You have a spiritual gas tank, and your spiritual gas tank needs refueled … refilled on a regular basis!

Bible verses about stress and spiritual and emotional strength
Just like the RV, car, motorcycle, or moped you drive around … you need a “fill up” and you need to stay “filled up”.  You need a certain type of 100 Octane to keep you movin’ spiritually, emotionally, and physically!
Bible verses about stress and spiritual and emotional strength

What is the FUEL we need?

Bible verses about stress and spiritual and emotional strength
The Fuel you and I need is the KNOWLEDGE OF GOD!  You and I must refuel our spiritual gas tank using the 100 Octane knowledge of God.

Let me explain …

Maybe, you believe you don’t have a spiritual gas tank.  Maybe, you don’t believe all that.  Maybe, you don’t believe in God at all … let alone, as the fuel of your life.

Whether you believe it or not …
Bible verses about stress and spiritual and emotional strength

You have a spiritual gas tank!

Bible verses about stress and spiritual and emotional strength
And, it is either empty, somewhere between empty-and-full, or it is full.  And, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to keep your spiritual gas tank full.  And again, the only fuel your spiritual (and emotional) life will run on without sputtering out is the knowledge of God.
Bible verses about stress and spiritual and emotional strength

You must always on a regular basis be increasing your knowledge of God.

Bible verses about stress and spiritual and emotional strength
Else …

At some point, you will run out of fuel in your tank.  At some point, the “red light” will come on … and your life will lose its energy, its power, and its forward momentum.  Sputter, sputter, sput!  At some point, you’re spiritual and emotional life will sputter to a stop, or at minimum, you’re ability to accelerate in life will slow down and/or become sluggish.

When your fuel level is low, everything in you has to work harder to function.

So …

Fuel up, fill up, refill, refuel!

Always be increasing your KNOWLEDGE OF GOD.  And you will find plenty of power in your life engine to stay running at your highest and best level of performance spiritually, emotionally, and physically.
Bible verses about stress and spiritual and emotional strength

Are you “pumped” up now?

Bible verses about stress and spiritual and emotional strength
The Knowledge of God …

Proverbs 2:2-5  (OT)

“If you incline your ear to wisdom and apply your heart to understanding;
Yes, if you cry out for discernment and lift up your voice for understanding,
If you seek her … and search for her as for hidden treasures;
Then you will understand the fear of the Lord,
AND FIND THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD.”

Hosea 4:1,5a-6  (OT)

“Hear the word of the Lord … for the Lord brings a charge against the inhabitants of the land: ‘THERE IS NO truth or mercy or KNOWLEDGE OF GOD IN THE LAND … therefore you shall stumble … [sputter, sputter, sput] … MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE.  Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you because you have forgotten the law of your God.'”

Hosea 6:1,3a-4,6  (OT)

“Come and let us return to the LORD … LET US KNOW … LET US PURSUE THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LORD.  His going forth is established as the morning … [God speaking] “O, what shall I do to you? O, what shall I do to you? For your faithfulness is like a morning cloud and like the early dew it goes away … FOR I DESIRE MERCY and not sacrifice AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD more than burnt offerings.”

Romans 11:33,36  (NT)

“Oh, THE DEPTH OF THE RICHES BOTH OF THE WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE OF GOD! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out … for of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.”

1 Corinthians 15:34  (NT)

“Awake to righteousness and do not sin; for SOME DO NOT HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD. I speak this to your shame.”

2 Corinthians 10:3,5,17-18  (NT)

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTS ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ … He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.  For not he who commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord commends.”

Colossians 1:9-11  (NT)

“For this reason we also since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you and to ask THAT YOU MAY BE FILLED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIS WILL in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and INCREASING IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD; strengthened with all might according to His glorious power for all patience and longsuffering with joy.”

2 Peter 1:2-3  (NT)

“Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the KNOWLEDGE OF GOD and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, THROUGH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIM who called us by glory and virtue.”
Bible verses about stress and spiritual and emotional strength

Your Heart is a big, big spiritual gas tank!

Bible verses about stress and spiritual and emotional strength
And God has designed your heart, your mind, and even your body to run best on the Knowledge of Him.  In fact, God has even designed you to RUN FOREVER on the knowledge of Him.  No sputter, sputter, sput if you consistently and constantly keep yourself refueled and refilled on the knowledge of God.

“His divine power has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness.”

You and I have a choice of what Fuel we’re going to use to “fill up” the spiritual gas tank of our heart.
