If you have a car long enough, sooner or later it will have to go into the shop for service. Whether you have your own dealership, mechanic or repair center, this maintenance must be completed if you want your vehicle to last. Beside regular oils changes and tire rotation, you may need to get your car re-aligned. Symptoms include drifting to one side, vibrations in your steering wheel or a steering column which shifts to a side despite driving straight.
Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living, Luke 15:13.
Depending upon the roads you travel upon, crumbling pavement and pot holes can speed up this process. Hitting one bad spot can do severe damage or lead to a blow out. Unfortunately, these events usually occur at the worst time, resulting in accidents, delays or pricey fixes. Those who use public transit don’t have these same concerns. However, anyone who drifts off course, experiences heart break or becomes crooked needs spiritual healing.
There is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one, Romans 3:11-12.
Looking to the world for answers to life’s problems is like going to a mechanic who doesn’t know your car or don’t know what they are doing. However, the apostle Paul isn’t afraid to state the obvious, everyone is imperfect. Thus, everyone needs to get their faith re-aligned, back in accordance with the Bible. Therefore, don’t try this on your own. Rather, reach out to others for prayer, support and wisdom until the Holy Spirit helps re-align your life.
