Sunday’s Monday

      I read this post today and it set me to believe that people who should know things simply don’t! The post read; Prayer is not a spare wheel you pull out when you’re in trouble. Use it as a steering wheel that keeps you on the right path throughout your life. Amen. This could be a little deceptive and even destructive for someone like me. I am not nor was I created to be the driver of my own life, the ditches that lie on each side of life’s highway are way too deep and I am too easily distracted. I spent the better part of my life proving that I am unfit to be in control of such a dangerous weapon. My life is merely a vehicle meant to transport me through this phase until I reach the next, ergo it is guaranteed to have influence and even inflict harm on others. I have spent the last 31 years trying to overcome that which I can’t even understand. I have no specific target to attack, therefor I have turned control over to the creator, designer, and planner of it all. He can! I can’t! Ephesians 3:20 (NLT), Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.

      The power of God’s word is often made way too easy for us master-minded humans. You see God and Jesus are teaching us as children and that leaves way too much room for us adults to complicate and overthink God’s words into something untranslatable. Believe me, I have friends who know so much bible that I often see it get in God’s way. As it is written in 1 Corinthians 14:19 (NLT), But in a church meeting I would rather speak five understandable words to help others than ten thousand words in an unknown language. It took a long time for me to get it but it isn’t what I say that is important after all I was born a liar. The truth within me is how I live, that is what people see. The integrity of a man can never be hidden because he comes equipped from the creator with it. We have to learn how to live within His boundaries. This is why I’m not to be the driver, I make a great co-pilot, and most of the time, I don’t mind being in the second seat.

      My big question is, if I were the driver in full charge of my bus loaded with a few followers; where would I take them? I must always be mindful, that there have been many great Godly men who fell by the wayside over the eons because they became distracted, and even though they could speak God’s words with compelling beautiful answers to the hard questions of life, “they crashed” because they took their eyes off Jesus. I saw this article in Google and love it, Matthew 14:30 says it's because he saw the strength of the wind. Peter had taken his eyes off Jesus. And yet, Jesus still held on to Peter. Just as it is grace “top to bottom” that saves us, it is faith “beginning to end” that sustains us. My help comes from Romans 12:3 (NLT), Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us. I simply desire my place in the body of Christ serving the King of Kings as an active working child of God.

      Father, I pray that we will always be mindful that the greatest men of the bible had you driving their lives. They knew as we should know that we are not meant to be first in command. Lord grant us the truth in, Matthew 14:29-30 (NLT), “Yes, come,” Jesus said. So, Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. Father, you made the plan, now take control, and I’ll simply do my part as you instruct. Lord may others decide to let you lighten their load and give you control of all. Amen
