You know, perhaps the hard way, that every once in a while you have to take your car in for a tune up, or for maintenance. New tires for traveling, new spark plugs so you don’t lose that fire, or the oil changed because it is dirty.
In a relationship with God, there are times when you need a tune up as well. Most likely more often than your car. You cannot simply start your relationship with God, and then simply turn on the cruise control. You can’t take your foot off of the gas pedal and coast either. You won’t make it over the next mountain if you do that. It doesn’t work that way. If you try, you will get stuck, or worse, breakdown. Have you ever noticed that breakdowns don’t occur at good times?
Your local, or TV minister don’t tell you to pray, and read your Bible just for the heck of it! They know that is the easiest way to stay finely tuned in your relationship with God. Or one could say, in tune with God. Walking in perfect step, harmony with him at his pace.
So above all, guard the affections of your heart,
for they affect all that you are.
Pay attention to the welfare of your innermost being,
for from there flows the wellspring of life. Pro. 4:23 (TPT)
