Highway to Heaven



Proverbs 10:17 (AMP)

He who heeds instruction and correction is [not only himself] in the way of life [but also] is a way of life for others.  And he who neglects or refuses reproof [not only himself] goes astray [but also] causes to err and is a path toward ruin for others.


I sat in my car, not moving, at all!  Singing my heart out, thankful in the moment for cool air conditioning, good country music and the rustic beauty of faded desert colors tinting my windows in sepia.  I was happily heading south when traffic came to a halting stop, seems a very slow going piece of large construction equipment decided to take the lead.  A line of cars was backed up for miles; crazy how one person can cause such a huge delay for so many others!

Similarly, by listening and responding to the governing and guiding of the Holy Spirit in our own daily lives, we have an effect on the timing and progress of others lives.  In fact I’d say we have a responsibility in the flow of the Kingdom of God.  We can either choose to receive the instruction we are being given and move onward; in and towards God’s good plan or we choose to ignore what we are hearing from the Lord and slow the process up.  Our spiritual gifts and growth bless others and so on, but in the same way our stubborn, stagnant disobedience slows and stunts the spiritual process.


There is a world out there of spiritually stuck people who are just waiting for that freedom of an open road. So the next time you are given the choice to press the gas with God, to take an active role in the Kingdom’s work by applying the gifts and insights he has bestowed upon you, remember this story and the frustration you feel when stuck, unable to move freely and forward.  Choose to be the one to help make a way for others! Move confidently and boldly forward with God’s placement and purpose for your life! Like the Rascal Flatts sing so well, Life is a highway, I’m gonna drive it all night long!  Get driving that car of yours!  Heaven and earth are waiting!
