This weekend has been an exceptionally busy one, blessed with many things, specifically good weather as it was necessary to do some work on the motor home in preparation for the coming colder, darker, wetter times ahead .
Yes, winter is around the corner as Summer officially ended Saturday night at 9 pm. After the first 2 weeks of living in the self made motor home I had come to early conclusion that for seasonal change it would need more power. I had fitted a leisure battery but this is charged from a split relay system that requires the vehicles engine to be run. I anticipated times ahead where I would need to be stationary, and where it is not practical or environmentally friendly to just run the engine to produce power.
After these considerations I decided on a high powered 100w solar panel to supply the power I would need for lighting, DVD player, phone and tablet.
I had the solar kit delivered to a friend’s and got a couple of brothers to help me fit it. We worked late on Saturday to complete it , it’s a real blessing to have spiritual brothers to help you out.
An opportunity arose, praise the Lord, on a secluded car park in the dark, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ during the fitting of the solar kit. I pray that the Lord waters that seed that was planted.
In the Holy Bible, in Genesis 1:3 it says, Then God said, ”Let there be light”, and there was light. The divine formative works. Another acknowledged translation says “Light be, and light was.” The incredible power of the Word of God! I am often fascinated by this first chapter and more in particular this verse , “LET”, the enormity of the grace, power and glory of God to ALL existence starts with God’s Will. Let.
Psalm 33:9 says “ For He spoke, and it was done He commanded, and it stood fast.”
The preceding verse in Genesis 1:2 says “ The Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.“ The Spirit was there, ready to start it’s work at God’s Will.
In the transformation from sinner to saint, after repentance, the new creation, the first thing wrought in the soul, is light , the inward working of the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 4:6 says , “ For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”
The solar panel works great, effective, efficient and cost free. I write this now under solar power, it is great to use what God has given us for His glory !
