Back in December, we purchased my 2-year-old granddaughter a 4-wheeler. The cool thing about this ride-on toy was that it blows lots of bubbles when the gas is accelerated. Boy did she love to see those bubbles! The problem was, she did not want to do what was required to make them blow. She insisted on riding this toy like she rode her old ride-on toys. They required her to scoot by using her feet. I thought she would enjoy this easy way because no physical work was needed. No matter how much we instructed her on how to ride her new toy, she continued defaulting to her old ways of doing things.
It made me reflect on my walk with the Lord. So many times, He had given me a better opportunity and an easier way to do things. Yet, I defaulted back to my old ways that I was comfortable with. I had to learn the hard way, resulting in me losing time and resources. I had to learn to let go and trust God. His ways are much higher than mine.
Just like my granddaughter enjoyed seeing those bubbles blow; we should love seeing the outcome of what our obedience in Christ can produce. We must always trust that God’s way of doing things yields a more favorable outcome in our lives.
Stop scooting through life when God has shown you how to accelerate!
Verse of Meditation: Isaiah 55:8-9 (ESV)
If you desire to know God deeper and you are not sure when you die if you will go to Heaven to be with Him in eternity. Please say the following prayer out loud:
“Lord, come into my life, I will make you Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I believe you died on the cross for my sins and three days later you got up with all power in your hands. Wash me and cleans me from all my sins and make me whole before you today. I renounce my past and look forward to my future in you. Lord fill me with the Holy Spirit as only you can. In your name of Jesus Christ, I pray.”
If you’ve said the above prayer by faith, you are saved my friend. I encourage you to reach out to me if you have any questions about your salvation or would like to connect to a faith-based church.
