SEPTEMBER 11, 2013 – GOD’S SPEED BUMPS – What happens when you drive over a speed bump really fast? To me, it feels like that you could actually damage your car. Speed bumps are there for a reason – Slow Down! The Word of God expresses, over and over again, that the Lord will actually fill us in ‘on things to come’. Here are just a few places that we see this in scripture: Isaiah 42:9, John 16:13, Daniel 8:26-27, Amos 3:7. The Lord will reveal to us things to come, so what do we do with that right now, in the present? We need to drive very slowly. I have learned to call this ‘God’s Speed Bumps’. God is outside of time but we are not. I have also learned that waiting on God is much easier than getting ahead of God. When we drive too fast over God’s Speed Bumps we could possibly bring damage to our present surroundings. God’s timing is perfect and God’s plan is perfect! Eccl 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. (NKJ) Psalms 130:5-6 I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in His word I do hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning– yes, more than those who watch for the morning. (NKJ) God’s speed bumps are there for a reason.
