A NEW COVENANT WITH GOD

Posted: September 7, 2012 in Uncategorized

I was praying one night and thinking on things which would hinder prayer and make it seem like the Lord was walking away and leaving me on my own as if I was riding through the Sahara on a solo ride and ended up broke down on the side of the road. Well if I was to ride on a solo ride through the Sahara on my way to Sturgis bike week let me think what would hinder me from completing that particular run and then compare it to what would hinder the hand of God and see if we don’t come up with a solution to both situations. We will look at the things that hinder the motorcycle run then look at what we could do next time to complete the run and compare it to what would hinder God’s hand and what we could do to make his work in our life manifest quicker than what it does or even manifest  at all.

Here we go, SITUATION

WE HAVE A RUN TO STURGIS AND WE HAVE TO MAKE OPENING DAY FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER THE POINT IS WE MUST MAKE THE OPENING DAY AND WE HAVE 1400 MILES TO COVER IN ABOUT 2 DAYS  SO IN ALL THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE WE JUMP ON OUR RIDE WHICH HAS NOT BEEN STREET TESTED YET AND THINK WE ARE GOOD TO GO AND WE HEAD OFF INTO THE BLUE YONDER ROLLING DOWN THE ROAD AND WE HIT ABOUT THE 200 MILE POINT IS THIS HOW WE WANT TO FIND OUT HOW MANY MILES TO THE TANK WE GET AS FAR AS GAS GOES. OH THE ENGINE BUILDER SAID IT WOULD GET, REALLY? WHY WOULD HE SAY THAT WE ARE 200 MILES IN THE MIDDLE OF NO MAN’S  LAND AND WE ARE OUT OF GAS NO CELL SERVICE NOTHING AND WE DON’T SEE ANY SIGNS OF CARS OR CIVILIZATION ANY WHERE IN SIGHT NOR HAVE ANY CARS COME AROUND AND WE ARE DOING THE OUT OF GAS DRILL FOR REAL THIS TIME. WHAT COULD WE HAVE DONE TO PREVENT THIS?

WE COULD HAVE,

1) TESTED HOW MANY MILES TO THE GALLON WE GOT FOR OUR TANK OR HOW MANY MILES TO THE TANK WE GOT BEFORE WE HIT THE RESERVE.

2) WE COULD HAVE HAD A CHASE TRUCK BEHIND US TO KEEP US FROM GETTING INTO THIS PREDICAMENT IN THE FIRST PLACE.

SO IN THIS SITUATION WHO’S FAULT IS IT THAT WE ARE OUT OF GAS ON THE SIDE OF THE DESERT ROAD, IS IT THE TANK BUILDER? NO, IS IT THE PEOPLE WHO DIDN’T FOLLOW US IN THE TRUCK? NO. WHY BECAUSE THEY KNEW NOTHING ABOUT THE RUN OR ELSE THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN THERE. SO ULTIMATELY IT IS WHO’S FAULT? ANSWER, OUR FAULT FOR NOT DOING WHAT WE KNOW TO DO AND THAT IS TAKE THE TIME TO TEST THE BIKE BEFORE GOING ON THE 1400 MILE RUN.

WELL LET’S COMPARE IT TO GOD AND WHAT WOULD HINDER HIS HAND.

THE BIBLE SAYS ASK AND WE SHALL RECEIVE RIGHT? WELL YES BUT IT HAS TO COME INTO ALIGNMENT WITH HIS WILL AND HOW WOULD WE KNOW THAT WHAT WE WANT IS IN HIS WILL, BY STUDYING HIS WORD AND PRAYING AND ASKING IF IT IS WHAT HE WANTS BEFORE WE ACT, AND SOMETIMES WE GET OUT OF TOUCH WITH GOD AND SO WE MUST MAKE A NEW COVENANT OR A KNEW RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM BY REDEDICATING OURSELVES TO HIM.

HOW ELSE WOULD WE HINDER THE HAND OF GOD? WELL WHEN WE TRY AND DO THINGS IN OUR OWN STRENGTH AND NOT DEPEND ON HIM TOTALLY WE HINDER HIS HAND WHY? BECAUSE WHEN HE WORKS THROUGH US IN OUR WEAKEST MOMENTS HE IS GLORIFIED, BUT WHEN WE DO THINGS IN OUR OWN STRENGTH THEN WE CAN BOAST AND GOD DOES NOT LIKE A BOASTFUL PERSON BECAUSE IT TAKES AWAY FROM HIS GLORY, AND MAKES IT LOOK LIKE WE DON’T NEED HIM WHEN IN FACT IT IS THE EXACT OPPOSITE WE NEED HIM MORE THAN WE KNOW BECAUSE WE CAN DO NOTHING AND I MEAN N-O-T-H-I-N-G  WITHOUT GOD. WE CAN’T BREATHE , WALK , EAT , LOVE, ANYTHING WITHOUT HIS HAND IN OUR LIVES. IT IS LIKE THE MOTORCYCLE RUN OF 1400 MILES. COULD WE MAKE IT ON AN EMPTY TANK? NO. THAT IS THE SILLIEST THOUGHT EVER TO THINK YOU CAN GO ON A 1400 MILE RUN ON AN EMPTY TANK. SO HOW DO WE COMPARE GOD TO A GAS TANK? WELL WITHOUT GAS WE ARE STRANDED ON THE ROAD PUSHING OUR RIDE ON THE SIDE. WITHOUT GOD WE ARE A MEANINGLESS PEOPLE TRYING TO JUST GET BY IN LIFE WITH NO HOPE OR KNOWLEDGE ON HOW IT IS SUPPOSED TO WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE A COMPLETE CIRCLE THUS MANIFESTING AN OUT POURING OF BLESSINGS GOD WANTS TO BESTOW ON HIS CHILDREN, HIS CREATION, HIS LOVE. WITH GOD WE ARE ABLE TO DO ALL THINGS. SO GOD IS OUR FUEL IN LIFE WHEN THINGS ARE GOOD WE NEED HIM AND WHEN THINGS ARE BAD WE   R-E-A-L-L-Y BAD  WE R-E-A-L-L-Y NEED HIM. SO DO WE BUILD GAS STATIONS JUST WHEN WE ARE EMPTY? NO. DO WE WAIT UNTIL WE ARE COMPLETELY EMPTY TO FILL UP?NO. SO WHY SHOULD WE TREAT GAS FOR OUR BIKES BETTER THAN WE TREAT GOD? SILLY TO THINK WE DO THAT BUT WE  SOMETIMES DO. SO MAKE THAT COVENANT WITH GOD AND DO JUST GO TO HIM WHEN  YOU ARE EMPTY AND NEED A FILL UP OR A TUNE UP. GO TO HIM WITH ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE AND EXPECT A TOTAL MANIFESTATION IN ALL AREAS BECAUSE GOD WANTS US TO BE BLESSED SO WE CAN BLESS OTHERS THUS GLORIFYING HIM IN THE PROCESS.

UNTIL NEXT TIME KEEP THE RUBBER SIDE DOWN AND MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU WITH THE BLESSINGS OF HEAVEN POURED OUR AMONG YOU LIKE SWEET MANNA.
