You know that morning smell that hangs in the air? The hours following the sunrise with no clouds to accompany it?
It was a gorgeous crisp morning to say the least.
The black leather seats, impressive. You could smell the newness a mile away.
A couple of co-workers crammed ourselves inside. We were going for a ride.
Ladies and gentlemen, we were in a SELF DRIVING CAR!
“Right Lane Change”, and “Left Lane Change”, my co-worker commanded! The car would speed up or slow down and change lanes! WE DIDN’T CRASH!
I must pause here and say that the movie “Terminator” flashed through my mind when all the Artificial intelligent computers became too smart and destroyed the world! I was like, this car’s AI is gonna go wacko, lock us in , and takes us to California where all the liberals live!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOO.
Funny thing is, we ALL said, we could never trust the self driving car completely. Our foot was hovering over the break the whole time.
Here is a cringing cliche thought, Do we trust Jesus to “Take The Wheel”?
Do we Trust Jesus 100% completely with our lives?
There are days we feel like Team Jesus can take over the whole world! Side by side fighting crime, sin, and injustice!
Most days it’s a struggle. Especially when we hear what the doctors say. When we see our bank account. When see the body in the casket. When we see kids killing kids in mass numbers.
“We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,” – Acts 14:22
We ask God, “What are you doing God? Where the heck are you taking me? I don’t see how this is in any way good for me Lord. Please take me off this path!”
As strenuous as it may be, we must learn to Trust. God. Completely. 100%.
The ironic conundrum is, we already took the first necessary step when we questioned God, because that means we were praying…
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. – Jer. 29:11-13
