I possess an abundant supply of energy, because I am indwelled by the Spirit. I am free to drink deep from this well of Power; I can thereby overcome lethargy, exhaustion, and drowsiness.

The more energy I apply in obedience to God's Law, the more energy I will have to apply to the next task of obedience.

I start each task with enthusiasm and joy, and this reverent attitude is blessed by God with more joyous energy.
