Daily Devotional - 29th August, 2012 - Refuelling when empty

Daily Devotional - 29th August, 2012
I was driving the car recently, and realised I had 34km left before I would run out of petrol! This was never a problem in the previous car I had. The other car used to 'BEEP' at me at 80km, and then 'BEEP' 'BEEP' at 40km, then 'BEEP, BEEP, BEEP' at 20 km and so I had plenty of warning to refill the tank. The problem I now had, was I had no indicators of when I am running on empty.
There's obvious parallels to life. How often do people run on empty and have no warning signs to tell them otherwise? When you are 'burning the candle at both ends' and when you are 'running on empty', what boundaries, mechanisms, tips, people or things do you have to warn you? Do you have someone close to you to let you know when the tank is running low?
Why not ask God to fill up the tank, and give you the inner rest you need, to be all that God wants you to be. Turn the fuel light on. Let it 'BEEP' at you. Hear the warning signs. Act Accordingly.
Ponder: What are your warning signs to tell you that you are running on empty?
Bible: Isaiah 40:28-31

  1. Great post Pete! I agree that developing good self-awareness and building accountable relationships is key to knowing your "warning signs".
