“You seem to be very fast when you want something,” I told paralyzed ministry dog Miss Mercy who despite given her age and history having slowed down greatly on her wheelchair walks was scooting-dragging her body on the hotel room at high speed to get to her food.
Reminds me of how some of us are with God – slow to obey Him when we don’t want to do something and super quick to go to God to ask for something we want and/or to receive a blessing He is giving us.
Should be our speed concerning God is consistent whereby we are quick to obey, to pray, and to receive His blessings with our hearts and mouths filled with love, praise, and thanksgiving!
“And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him,” Hebrews 5:9 NKJV
