Beware Of Cruise Control
Personally, I don’t want to drive my car without it. You know that button you push that frees you to relax a little. It allows you to take your foot off the gas and brake. In fact, it’s too bad you still have to hold the steering wheel. Otherwise, you might be tempted to just take a nap until you reach your destination.
Unfortunately after awhile cruise control can lead to sleep driving. I know I’ve had times where all I remember is leaving one place and arriving at another. So much could have happened while I was cruising. Sadly cruise control can decrease your senses. You could easily get in a sudden crash as your focus becomes more relaxed.
Satan loves it when we try to operate spiritually on cruise control. Suddenly we quit thinking about our enemy. We spend way less time in prayer and in God’s word. Eventually we even quit going to church because we don’t really feel the need anymore. Then, boom the evil one tackles us from behind while we think we’re just cruising. Never under estimate the spiritual battle we all face. Every time you do a rude awakening is sure to follow.
“Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8
