When the Rubber hits the Road!

It’s a cold wet morning for a day in March. The sun was supposed to come out, but God said wait. Wow, you go out to start your car and your engine is stalled. Feeling kind of unfulfilled? …Sad? In the twilight zone? and you don’t seem to know why things aren’t fitting together just the way you thought they would by now. Well this is a good time to take stock of things in your life in general where you’ve been putting all your nuts/bolts and where are you spending all of your time. Where have your thoughts been? Have you thought of how much Jesus loves You this morning? Wo! your engine just started. Your wheels are spinning, but somehow still, you feel like you’re going nowhere. You see through your windshield;but things seem cloudy. The picture outside seems monochromatic. You’re sputtering down the road; your engine is only half effective.  You know deep down inside you could be running on better octane, but you are using excuses for you’re own misfiring pistons and even blaming everyone else on the road!  Well, I know of a high performance additive you could put into that engine;  it’s called forgiveness.  Have you forgiven those that have hurt you?  Wo! your engine just freed up! The scenes along the road are coming into clear and more colorful focus!
Your engine is your heart and a healthy engine is what propels us forward.  Now you see when God sent his son to die for all of our sins that have polluted our engines; He said to “forgive as I have forgiven You”. go and sin no more.  You’re forgiven for everything you have ever done wrong, so move your freed up engine down the road.  Don’t be like those who will not forgive; they don’t know of this perfect love.  You can only be an example of this love.  Keep forgiving.  Be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.  Pray for those who continually hurt you.  Do not clog your engine with the temptations of this world. Do not stop and rest here. God has a powerful plan for your life. Remember to fill up with His hi-test every morning. Expensive isn’t it? Well it’s worth it.
Having it all begins with God being your best friend. You can have everything you’ve ever desired, because God says this in His word “He gives you the desires of your heart”. So what is really in your heart? You don’t want to be unhappy. Be happy with what you’ve got. Make it clear to God what it is that you are hurt about and make sure you forgive. That is the only way you will be happy.  His engine is perfect. Put on His Engine.  Pray and live for “HIS PERFECT WILL”.  Mountains will move… in Gods time!  Jesus gave His all for us. It’s time for us to give our all to Him. He loves you and wants you to be happy. Once you really truly forgive with His power and trust Him for your life, everything begins to fall into place. That is, once God is steering  your machine and not yourself.  Then one day, you can really share this glorious life with someone else. His power and His strength will keep you in show room condition, every step of the way. With His power you must conquer and run over the wiles and the ways of this world.  There is a force that seeks to destroy all of your hopes and dreams and even your very being. The Lord is building you up right now to be able to motor in any weather and win any race. He is getting you ready for this happy and peace life that you desire. You are adding more horse power to your spiritual life and that is why you feel this pain. You will make it and you’re doing ok, but you’re just beginning to live for God with your steel trap mind. So keep talking to God everyday and His voice in your heart will get stronger. Take a part inventory, tune up and change the oil if you have to. Sell out: All for Christ. Give Him everything you want, and all you could achieve or receive. Let it all go to Him. Let him build your machine, this will make you happy. He’s with you at the beginning of your race. Let Him bring you to the finish line.  Wo! I think I here an engine purring!

“I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”-2 Tim. 4:7       

“Seek ye first the kingdom of heaven and all His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.”-Matt. 6:33

“The treasure you seek is the Lord Jesus Christ. Where your treasure is that is where your heart is also.”-Matt. 6:21

“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who brings glad tidings of good things” Rom 10:15

If you want to be the strongest, fastest, good looking car on the road, remember Christ is the driver and that the rubber has to hit the road first. Then you’ll be blazing down the road…like a beacon in the dark.

Love you friends,

In Christ,
