Memories of the Future

Move a Little Faster!
Remember the iconic scene in Jurassic Park when the T-Rex was chasing the jeep? Jeff Goldblum's character was in the backseat (thus closest to the gaping jaws of the huge dinosaur) and he said, "Must...go...faster!"
We don't really know how fast we are able to go until the Lord provides motivation via life circumstances. I feel certain that our Lord prefers not to frighten us into cooperation, and so we probably will not find ourselves being pursued by wild animals. But we can rest assured that the God who created us knows us so well that He is able to motivate us to greater effort to obey His instruction. His strategies may indeed cause an adrenaline rush followed by the recognition that we are able to move a little faster than we thought. The comforts of complacency rarely work toward the Lord's purposes.
God always keeps His promises. Lord, help us to move as quickly as we are able toward the fruition of the blessings You have promised us through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen!
