These high school Sunday school lessons use a common item that all students have to teach the message of Isiah. We need to plug into God when life depletes us. He is our recharge. God wants to recharge us when we’re out of juice.

Sunday School Lessons: “God Is Our Charger”

Isaiah 40:30-31

Cell phone and charger

Plug the charger into the wall and have cell phone near it.

Hold up your cell phone. Uh oh. My cell phone is dead. What does that mean? You can’t make any calls. You can’t receive any calls.

How does a cell phone get to be dead? You used all your battery charge.

Sometimes a cell phone can go dead faster than usual. What causes that? Overuse.

Yesterday, my cell phone went dead even before dinner time because I was helping a friend try to solve a problem, and she had me on my cell for a couple of hours. I overused my cell and now, it needs to be recharged.

Our souls are a little like this cell. Sometimes life brings trials and tribulations. They can get us “run down.” We can get to feeling so tired or so dejected or so depressed that we feel like we just want to curl up in a ball and fall asleep for a year.

What we need is a recharge. Take the charger and plug it in to the cell phone. Show the “recharging” icon to the kids.

Did you know that some churches call the Wednesday night service a “Mid-Week Recharge?” Why do you think it’s called that? It gives you a surge of faith in the middle of the week in case you’re running down.

When we’re starting to feel worn down by life’s struggles, that’s when we really need to plug into God the most. By plugging in to God, we mean praying lots more; reading our Bibles more often, and going to church services in the middle of the week. God will be able to recharge you.

Recharging our cell phone takes a while. We have to be patient. And it’s the same for waiting on the Lord to recharge us.

Isaiah 40:30-31 says, “Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.”

If I’m just patient a little while, I’ll have my charge back on my cell. If I’m faithful to the Lord – I pray hard, go to His word in prayer, and fellowship with other Christians, I will find that my life has been recharged as well.
