Perfect Car, Perfect LifeTuesday, January 10, 2017
Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.
though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand.
I rolled down my window to talk with a friend only to notice that my car was making noises that it definitely shouldn't have been making. I decided I would take it to get fixed right away, but since it was the weekend I had to wait until Monday.
As I waited to take my car in so many thoughts were going through my mind!
"I'm going to have to get a new car!"
"How am I going to pay for a new car!?"
"Where will I get a new car!?"
I tried to speak life into the situation despite the thoughts that kept running through my head. I would say,
"My car is blessed!"
"Every part of my car works perfectly!"
"My car is protected!"
"I plead the blood of Jesus over this car!"
Well, I took my car in on Monday only to find out that the reason for all the noises was because I hadn't gotten my oil changed...EVER...I had NO oil in my car. I had driven it over 6,000 miles, not including however many miles the previous owner had driven it, without an oil change...
The mechanic told me that there was a lot wrong with it due to me driving it without oil. I did not have a peace about the situation so I got the oil changed for $37 dollars and then left without fixing everything that they told me was wrong.
I took it into another mechanic the next morning, a much more trusted mechanic that I HIGHLY recommend! They looked at the estimate from the last mechanic and told me that it was "garbage!" They said my car was great and that everything is fine (That's what I got from what they said, at least)!
My car sounds perfect and all I needed was a $37 dollar oil change!
It's amazing how quickly our thoughts can get away from us! This new year remember that you serve a God who cares about the details of your life! He cares about your car, your home, your family, your friends, your finances, and every other aspect of your life. He has good plans for you and has abundant blessings all lined up for you! Don't let the devil deceive you! Don't allow yourself to speak doubt and unbelief.
Today, even if things look dark, know that you are God's child, and He takes GOOD care of His children!
