Rally Near Him
Straight Pipes
What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the Lord
our God is near us whenever we pray to him (Deut. 4:7).
Christians have an awesome privilege. God is listening. Jesus is intervening… when we pray, seeking His answers for life situations. Each morning, before the hustle and bustle of daily life gets in the way, we have the opportunity to sit down with the God of the Universe, our Creator, and visit about the situations, pressures, trials, and burdens we face.
An easy formula to follow is the word ACTS (Adore, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication). Before we rev up the motorcycle, we can worship Him
(Adore)from the sanctity of our home, renewing our relationship with His Holy Spirit for the day ahead.
We can (Confess) the mistakes we’ve made and take care of anything that might stand in the way of God hearing our pleas. We can seek His forgiveness.
We can (Thank) Him personally, for everything about our life is pure pleasure, balm for a believing heart.
Then we seek His answers for ourselves and others (Supplication), leaving burdensome worries at His feet. That takes the pressure off, as long as we’re truly willing to accept His solutions.
Motorcycle riders have no idea where God will use their bikes to open doors of ministry. We enjoy the freedom of the wind touching our bodies, the freedom from the four-wheel cage. But, as Christians, we know that Jesus commanded us to “Go out into all the world. …” The first step is to listen for God’s plan. Listen to see where He wants us, and where He is already working. We aren’t in a position to listen if we’re not allowing His Holy Spirit to work in our heart through daily prayer and Bible study. Begin this morning. Set aside a short time, in a quiet place, to seek God’s
face. Then listen and ride.
