Think About It

Jesus Loves You

Jesus loves you is a great thought but how often do we see it tangibly played out? We can know it in our heads, but practically speaking, do we really believe it?

I try to live each day with the awareness that Jesus does love me and that he has promised to give me wisdom and guidance through his Holy Spirit. Such was the case the other day when my wife and I were traveling. We had stopped for gas and after getting back on the Interstate with my truck pulling a 30’ fifth wheel camper, I noticed that the battery gauge seemed to indicate that it was discharging. Now I can tell you that my first thought was that I didn’t want to breakdown on the Interstate pulling a fifth wheel, but where do I go? What exit should I take considering that most of the gas stations are not repair shops? After all, breaking down with the truck is one thing, breaking down with the truck and fifth wheel is a completely different matter. So as we drove, we prayed, Jesus show us which exit to take. As we exited the Interstate, we looked for a repair shop but couldn’t see anything. Suddenly I noticed a sign on a side hill, “Jesus Loves You”, and at the bottom of that hill was an auto parts store. Halleluiah, since I probably could fix the problem myself, this was just what I needed.

It turned out that this was the only auto parts store for miles and they had everything I needed. The problem? Turned out to be the battery cable going to the starter had grounded out against the frame. The only thing I needed, which I didn’t have, was a jack and jack stand so that I could get under the truck. Two hours later we were back on the road and on to our destination.

Here’s the point. I believe that God will direct our steps if we ask and believe. That means a walk of faith. Is it easy? No, not always as I have found that God works according to his timetable and not ours. That means it will always be at the right time but we must be patient and wait for it. For most of us, we don’t want to wait, so we try to do things our way. Although our way may get results, it is never as good as his and may only mean we’ll have to go around the mountain again. Think about it.
