Just before a car’s engine runs out of gas it shakes violently, sputters, and knocks hard. It is then, the driver’s stomach does the same thing. Unless you are driving a very old clunker there is a light on the dash that does its best to tell you when you are running out of and in need of filling up again.
A friend of mine is living overseas. No friends, or family went with him. He has been there long enough to make new friends, get new co-workers, but he hasn’t found a church quite like what he had in America. In fact, not even close. We were talking the other day, and I said to him, “You are getting low on God.” How did I know? By the way he talked about life there, and I could tell he was forgetting a lot of the wisdom and understanding from the Word of God he had learned. He agreed.
It is critical, to the life of one who is a serious follower of Jesus Christ,
to keep an eye on the God gauge.
To know the signs of when you are drifting away from true north. When your half of the relationship with Jesus isn’t what it once was.
Some of the things that cause this to happen are; busyness in life, missing church, you know, the forsaking the assembling of the brethren, slacking off on your devotion to God, and over all lacking in spending time with Him. It happens slowly, and before you know it.
As we are entering into troubling times it is more important than ever to stay close to God. In fact, it wouldn’t hurt anything to draw near to God even more! Take you fears and concerns to him. Walk in confidence of knowing God, and knowing he knew long before the news channels what today would reveal. God loves you so much, and he cares about the things you are concerned with. Spending time with Him fuels you to overcome the things in life that can trip you up. When your tank stays full of God you wind up getting more MPG (Miles per God) in life. You never want to find yourself on the road of life and realize you are one mile till empty.
