Every one of us can use and needs a spiritual tune-up. What is a spiritual tune-up…..it’s the times when we may break down spiritually, having doubts about Him and His word. Its times when we say we have the spirit, but inside we are hurting and angry, maybe even at God and have put worldly things ahead of Him. It’s times in our life when we may get where we needed to go, but it was a very rough ride getting there. Then there are the times we are not running on all cylinders, we are tired, feeling like we are not getting anything from His word.
No matter who we are, there will be times when we all need a spiritual tune-up. We get this by reading His word and by listening to Him speak to us. We may not like what He has to say but He knows what’s best for us and if we will really listen to Him, never going to long between each tune-up, which means making Him a part of everyday, we wont need those tune-ups as often.
You see, like our vehicle, if we don’t give it the attention it needs it will start causing problems and maybe stop all together. If we don’t spend time with our Lord, giving Him our time and attention, before we know it, we have gotten completely away from Him.
Romans 15:4 For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
