God-Ordained Pit Stops

FEBRUARY 4TH, 2022      |    In auto racing, pit stops are taken during the race for refueling, changing tires, and repairs. No driver races alone. A driver has a team for support throughout the race. Without strategic pit stops, the driver could run out of gas, blow a tire, and reduce the ability to finish the race.

Your life is like a race that requires faith, discipline, and endurance. Strategic pauses help you stay in the race God has designed for you. God-ordained pit stops protect you and guard others. When properly regarded, pit stops have the power to refresh, refuel, refine, realign, and to reflect and recognize God’s handiwork in your life.

God does not want you to run out of zeal, speed ahead of Him, allow the enemy to steer you off course, or crash into someone else’s life. It’s important for you to accept and appreciate all your God-ordained pit stops gladly. You are not in a race to win one trophy. There are many finish lines God wants to witness you crossing over victoriously. Intentionally plan some breaks with God so you can stay on track and finish your race well.

God-Ordained Pit Stops

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

–Hebrews 12:1 NIV

Pause and ask God to reveal whether you are on track with His will.

Ask the Holy Spirit to guide, empower, and fuel you to keep going strong in your journey with Him.
