Do You Need An Oil Change?
Sneak peek text from Shirley's new book:
We know by the manufacturer’s sticker pasted on our car window or by the kilometres driven, when we need to change the oil. This is the natural realm.
In the spiritual realm, we know through prayer and reading the Word when God is showing us we need to change our oil. When things aren’t oiled they become squeaky, rusty and dry. Many Christians become spiritually dry and rusty if they are not continually bathed in oil. In Job 28, Job said “the rock poured out oil for me.”
So when people look at your life they can see that you have been keeping your oil clean. Don’t get discour- aged, whom God loves He disciplines.
And have you forgotten the encouraging words God spoke to you as his children? He said,“My child, don’t make light of the Lord’s discipline, and don’t give up when he corrects you.
Also in Psalms
Joyful are those you discipline, Lord, those you teach with your instructions. You give them relief from troubled times until a pit is dug to capture the wicked.
