Imagine you are driving down the high way. Would you be going the speed limit. Come on are you really going the speed limit? Do you you use your turn signal every time you change lanes? Then up in front of you see a police car on the side of the road. You step on the brakes to slow down and make sure you are doing everything right. He pulls out behind you but doesn't have his lights on. You are nervous but want to be the best drive you can be. Soon he pulls off the high way and you are back to driving like you were before you saw him. (OK I'm saying him but it could be a her). What is a policeman's job? To keep us safe and protected. Why were you nervous when he was following you? You weren't doing anything wrong at that time. That nervousness could be considered a healthy good fear.
So God wants to keep us safe and protected. When we are close to Him we are so much more aware of our behavior. But what we need to remember God is with us always. We need to have that healthy fear. If God pulls us over to write a "ticket" he is just doing it for our safety and because He not only wants us safe and protected He loves us with the greatest Love of all. A love that has no end.
Sometimes it hard to accept our "tickets" from God. We question him on why he is allowing something to happen. But we don't learn if we don't go through things. We don't think of questioning a policeman. God is so much more so I'm going to just try to keep my mouth shut and accept what God has for me to learn.
This is just something I was thinking about today.
