Today, I’d like to post a song by Travis Greene called All Things New. Yesterday, I had a bit of drama with my car not being able to start. I took the car with the help of my dad to the mechanic and found out that the starter was the issue. The Mechanic was able to deal with the starter plug issue and my car was able to start again. I needed to have this fixed ASAP because it’s dangerous to drive on a highway and then all of a sudden have the car stop at 100km/hr that could lead to an accident. It was a bit of money to deal with but it was worth it. The car was fixed and it was as good as new.
So why am I telling you this story? I feel like without God and a relationship with Jesus, we can be like my car and drive like we don’t need a tune-up or fixing and just travel through life assuming that nothing can ever go wrong in our lives if we do things “our way”. There were warning signs initially when I was driving this car that there was something wrong with it but I don’t know much about cars to know what the issue is so I had to go to someone who could pinpoint what that was in order to get it fixed.
We too are like that… In some way, the issues in our heart are areas we can identify, such as hurt, pain, anger, anxiety etc etc. Sometimes we bottle up these emotions until we need a real tune-up from the Lord to show us that we need to stop and analyze our problems and issues. We can’t be like my car and guess what’s wrong with it when we can go to the Lord that is able to show us what needs fixing. He is the Master mechanic of our lives if you really think about it. In many cases, it’s our hearts that need fixing. We can try and do life running on “empty” or we can go to the Way Maker who is able to show us how we can feel fulfilled and function in the best way possible in our lives since the Joy of the Lord is our True Strength.
Nehemiah 8:10 [Full Chapter]
Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
Psalm 89:15 Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.
We can always make mistakes along our roads in life, but we shouldn’t forget that we have the most amazing GPS (Godly Positioning System) in our lives, and He happens to be Jesus Christ. He can change the course of our lives so that we don’t do life alone and travel through perilous paths with no direction. The question is, do you want God to show you were you Ought to go? The mistakes of yesterday won’t stop Him from loving you today and forever. He still wants to change the course of your life and lead you in the Right Direction if you just submit your will to Gods.
James 4:7 [ Humility Cures Worldliness ] Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
I pray that as you listen to this song, you will practice some level of introspection to look inside your heart and be honest with yourself and come to the conclusion that you are indeed in need of the Savior, Jesus Christ. God wants you to learn to reach out to Him in any time of need and to learn to put your trust in the right place. Put your Trust in the Lord and He will lead you in the right direction, Amen.
I pray that this song by Travis Greene blesses your Spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂
