What do you do when you see a stop sign? What are you supposed to do when you see a stop sign? Why is it so hard for us to do what we are supposed to do? Some times the Holy Spirit will put up a stop sign in our lives. When we see this spiritual stop sign – it means STOP! Don’t go anywhere and don’t do anything! Stop and survey the situation. This is easier said than done! After you stop and make sure that everything is as it should be, then you can go!
We Need To Stop And Check Things Out! The right Church gives us an opportunity to stop! When we go to church, if we are going to get out of church what we could and should, then we need to use our experience at church as an opportunity to stop. Stopping is vitally important to our safety and our continued journey! Stop or you will be stopped – one way or another. You and I can make the choice to stop in safety, survey our situation and move forward with confidence that we are doing the right thing, or we can keep moving and be stopped by the tragedies, frustrations and challenges of life, which can often produce a lot of harm and dysfunction!
All of us need to take some time to stop! When you stop, ask God to help you to survey your life and the way that you are living it. Does anything need to change? Is their room for improvement? The purpose of stopping is to make sure that our life is headed in the right direction. When you know that it is, rev up the gas and enjoy the ride!
