“Travel Tips”

Posted: January 21, 2017 in Christian Life, God's Will
If you MUST speed while driving, sing these hymns loudly:
at 45 mph…. “God Will Take Care of Me”
at 55 mph…. “Guide me, O Great Jehovah”
at 65 mph…. “Nearer My God to Thee”
at 75 mph…. “Nearer Still Nearer”
at 85 mph…. “This World is Not My Home”
at 95 mph…. “Lord, I’m Coming Home”
at 100 mph…. “Precious Memories”
 
   My dad set a good example for us by praying for travel mercies before we started out on a trip or even short distances. I have picked up the habit. Yes, we do have guardian angels (Hebrews 1:14; 1 Peter 1:12) but let’s drive responsibly and glorify our God by our driving habits. We are supposed to obey the speed limits and signs that were designed to protect all the travelers on the road (Romans 13).
   I’ve found that travel time is a good time to listen to the reading of the Scriptures or listening to good Christian music to calm the nerves. I try to think about the needs of the other drivers who may not have a living hope like Christians do. If you have children in the car, it’s a good time to teach them about God and His Word (Deuteronomy 6:7; Ephesians 6:4).
   My office is on a busy street and many accidents have happened right outside of it. When they do, I try to find out if anyone was injured and then share a Gospel tract with them and invite them to church.
   Have you ever thought about thanking God for getting you safely to your destination (Ephesians 5:20)? Even if we should be in an “accident” (incident) that wasn’t our fault, we can/should give thanks (1 Thessalonians 5:18) because we know that God is still in control.
