On my way in to The Ridge this morning, I passed a used car dealer and saw this on their lighted sign. “No Money No Problem”. It gave me pause to think what the sign actually meant. I was thinking that perhaps I could purchase a car there with no money. Maybe they were free. Or, maybe there was some other commodity that would be acceptable as a payment?
I’m not interested in another vehicle free or not so I did not research its meaning. However, I did ponder the words of the sign for a bit, concluding that they were incorrect. Without money, there is a problem. I mean a person can get by on their good looks for just so long. Money is a necessity to be successful in today’s society, as well as, in purchasing a vehicle, except if you are really, really good looking!
What if the sign read, “No strength No problem” that would be equally inaccurate as “No Money No problem.” Strength, stamina, and energy are essential to face successfully the challenges of daily life. When they are lacking there is a problem!
In reality, it is when we confess our lack of life’s essentials that God’s unlimited resources are able to fill us up, see us through, and alleviate the problem.
What essentials are you lacking today? Announce it before the Lord and allow God’s unlimited resources to fill you up. “But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles. They run and don’t get tired, they walk and don’t lag behind.” (Isa 40:31 MSG)
