My car has been in and out of the shop lately. First with the crash, and then with issues stemming from the crash. But now, I’m dealing with a noise that is obnoxious that only happens when the technician is not in the car. I sat for two hours waiting for them to correct the issue only to have them tell me that they didn’t hear anything, so I left. On the way home, it started again, but it kept doing it, so I went back, and finally someone heard the sound it was making.
This same thing happens to us physically, and mentally. Sometimes our mental trouble stems from something physical going on in our body. However, there are things that go back to past hurts or trauma that stems from someone else’s sin, or even our own past sin. You may also be dealing with fear; maybe you’re dreading something that’s coming up. Rejection always causes pain; you may be trying to tough it out, but God knows the truth. So now you see why the technician needed to hear the issue with my car! How can you eliminate the problem if you don’t know its cause. We have a technician who knows everything, but he needs you to ask him for his help. If you feel troubled, the next time you are alone with God, ask for help, and then trust him for the outcome.
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
