Learn to Shift Gears!

Tuesday, February 11, 2014 (9:45 am)

by George Whitten, Editor of Worthy Devotions.

Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Every time I turn on the news it seems the new buzzword is – CHANGE! So how can we just shift gears and change? Let's learn a lesson about basic automotive mechanics. Generally a car has between 4 and 5 gears. The first gear maximizes power in exchange for speed. As you move through the gears, you can continue to go faster, yet without using any more power, and before you know it – you have to look at the speedometer – cause nobody wants a speeding ticket!

So what can we learn from this? Do you want a breakthrough? Do you want a new direction? Then you need to take that first step! You need to put all your focus – all your energy into that first initial gear! Yes, it takes all your strength, and yet it seems like you're moving sooo slow — but be encouraged, because once you start moving, you'll be able to shift gears — and before you know it –- you'll be sailing along, and even need to check to see if you're speeding!

The first step is always the hardest — but it's necessary for change! You can breakthrough with the power of God empowering you, so GO FOR IT! Put everything you've got into that first start. And just like driving, it'll get easier; and before you know it — we might even have to issue you a speeding citation, just to slow you down a bit..! With so much work to be done, let's not stay in neutral — let's get in gear, and start shifting!

    This article was a great evening devotional for my wife and I. She picked it apart with 1 Peter 3 and 4, both which talks about sffering for being a Christian, quite a contrast to "things getting easier."

    Thanks for this devotion. It spoke to me! I am a couple of months into putting everything into building my speaking ministry so I am in first gear now but desiring to shift into second! I know the Lord has called me to this so I just have to be patient!
