“On the glorious splendor of your majesty,
and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.”
Psalm 145:5 English Standard Version
There is nothing worse than driving your car and the brakes go soft, or worse yet, your brakes fail. The only time that I’ve experienced brake failure was driving an old WWI vintage flatbed truck (at least my boss told me that it was) whose top speed was maybe five mph. My life wasn’t in danger.
There are times that we need to put on the brakes.
- We’re so busy that we don’t have time for our family.
- We’re on the computer so long that we forget to eat.
A fast food restaurant declared, “you deserve a break today.” We may not “deserve” a break but we sure could put on the brakes. We might want to start by putting the brakes on how we’re leading our life and find time to meditate on our redeeming God.
Some of you are better than I am at putting on the bakes. When I get up in the morning I find myself planning and worrying about the day’s events. I’m trying to set a new routine, a routine that includes three things; stretching (old age), Bible meditation and reading.
I don’t know what will work for you, but I do know that God’s wants you to put on the brakes and enjoy his presence.
