Some time ago, I was informed that the vacuum cleaner at home did not work. I checked the belts, etc., and all seemed fine. Then it came to me. I removed the hose and looked through it. No light came through it from the other end. I removed the clogged up dirt, and the vacuum worked fine after that. The dirt and debris prevented the vacuum cleaner from working properly.

This is a parable of life. God’s power is often thwarted in our lives because of clumps of dirt that we allow to remain. The kind of commitment that causes us to come clean with God releases the flow of God’s power in our lives.
