We come up behind us riding our bumper like being a few feet closer to and tailgating the car in front of them will get them somewhere quicker. People can be scatter brained and be in such a hurry even they do not know whether they are coming or going. So many times the person riding your bumper doesn't really have anywhere important to be. (Have you ever noticed that the person who will risk your life to pass on a double yellow line will be sitting at the next traffic light when you stop?)
It seems like we are all too busy and in too big of a hurry doing nothing and accomplishing nothing. We can waste God's time by moving to fast.
Sometimes when we are in such a hurry we completely run off and leave God behind. We get so far ahead of where God wants us to be that we wind up lost.
If Satan can keep us running ahead of God he finds us vulnerable to attack. He comes at us in our weakest state.
The Bible says: 2Timothy 2:15 STUDY to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
To stay close to God we need to study His Word and talk to him daily in prayer. When you find yourself in such a hurry that life, and God's purpose for your life seem to be a blur, remember what David said, "Be still and know that I am God."
Remember, the world might be riding your bumper and going nowhere but you can be still and trust God.
