According to Goggle – Roadside assistance is a service that assist motorists, or bicyclists, whose vehicles have suffered a mechanical failure that leaves the operator stranded.
Most of us have experienced some form of emotional trauma that left us troubled, perplexed, and stranded like a broken down vehicle that required roadside assistance.
And the scariest moments came in the 3am timezone while lying wide eyed in bed.
You know those thoughts that torment, and mock, and laugh at you after you had a bad day. Those are the creepy times when we need urgent bedside assistance.
Who is up that you can call that time of the morning? Who can bring about a permanent resolution to those wacky uncontrolled thoughts? Who can you trust to carry the weight on your shoulders? Who will hold your hand until the storms of thoughts have passed?
After doing some reflections I’ve come to the conclusion that all our anxieties, fears, tears, and sleepless nights came about because we mortal beings set our stopwatch to the time we want to give God to respond to our cries.
When the time elapses our heart grows faint and our fears turns to doubts. Then there’s a crash sending us spellbound into overthinking creating a chain reaction where we desperately try to solve everything before sunrise.
Like roadside assistance designed for vehicles… we too have a manufacturer policy that gives us the lifetime option to call on JESUS when we are in trouble.
- Towing…”My strength is gone God. I am exhausted.”
- Battery service…”My heart is crushed and I can’t go on any longer.”
- Flat tire…”I’ve been betrayed and hurt God”
- Fuel delivery…”There’s nothing worth living for.”
- Lockout service…”God, my parents and family members have deserted me.”
- Collision assistance…”Lord, I’m left alone to die. Nobody cares.”
To remain in the race of life..we all have to choose whether we will agree to bedside/roadside assistance or simply park up and die.
It’s a personal choice that must be made by the operator of our human machine.
God is a safe and reliable friend to call for help. He stands ready and willing to help when we find ourselves hanging off the cliff-edge of life.
God protects us from the fierce fights of discouragements and depression by suggesting that we keep our mind/thoughts stayed on His promises.
God is at our service from the crack of dawn to going down of the sunset to the rising of the sun the next day until death do us part.
If God calls the stars, the moon, and the sun all by their names …guaranteed He knows our names.
24 hours Roadside and Bedside Assistance is available to all who call.
When things look impossible that’s when God shows up. He shows up and He shows off His rescue plan…and it’s visible for the whole world to witness.
It’s so sweet to trust in Jesus…just to take Him at His Word…just to rest on His promises…just to know God said it and it came to pass.
Keep trusting His timing.
