God Speaks In My Car
Does this happen to anyone else? The most recent chat began when I noticed a police officer driving on the highway and every car that had been speeding prior to the cop appearing, slowed down; so much so that they almost caused an accident. Honestly it can bug me a bit when I see reckless driving and then the switch up when a cop is near. Why do people all of a sudden become law abiding citizens when authoritative figures are near? The moment they feel as though “it’s safe again” most of those drivers go back to speeding all over again! I’ve had my fair share of speeding, don’t get me wrong but I’ve been learning a lot the past year or so while driving.
You might be wondering the relevance of this blog, well I will break it down and prayerfully God will give us all additional revelation on this. I’m reminded of Biblical stories whenever I see how quick drivers switch up. How often do we see, in the Bible, God’s people turn from what is right in His sight to what’s not? If you read your Bible frequent then you realize it happens more often than not. We find the children of Israel disobeying God quite often in the Old Testament. And in the New Testament God warns that in the last days there will be plenty of things unpleasing to God (1 Timothy 3:1-7). God sends His Word through a prophet and the people for the most part straighten up. Just like the drivers, when authority comes around the people of God would repent and do what is right for a while. But when we read the Bible we see the people of God end up right back in disobedience. Why do we straighten up and do what we should have already been doing when we get correction from God? Why is it so easy for us to get comfortable when we feel like we’ve been doing well and we don’t “feel” the conviction to do what’s right? Driving is only the scenario in which the Holy Spirit used to show me something and I’m sharing it with you! Your real life scenario could very well be something completely different, I know mine is! But whatever that thing is that we keep returning to the point is if we’re striving to do what’s right, it will take more than momentary righteousness.
I want for us all to thrive in our walk with Christ, one step at a time and helping one another out. It’s not enough to do what’s right only when we feel like “the coast is clear”, why because the entire world is watching us (Romans 8:19); our true advisory, Satan, is watching us as well to catch us slipping (1 Peter 5:8). And most of all God is watching. We will make mistakes in life, but I hope that this blog post will help us all when it comes to our intentions.
