Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. Lamentations 3:22
One of my friends has an electric car. It is an absolutely great car. It has all of the gadgets, the bells, the whistles, and everything else you’d expect in that kind of car. One day we were going for a ride, and let’s just say it didn’t go as well as I had hoped. You see, we went out to run some errands, and I found out there is a trick to electric cars. You have to charge them.
You see, my friend’s wife had been driving the car the day before, and when she got home, he forgot to put the car on the charger. So when we got in the car and started driving around, the car had a charge, but it wasn’t fully charged. After a little while, we noticed that the charge indicator was getting lower, and lower, and lower. The more we drove around, the more we focused on that charge indicator because what we didn’t want to do is run out of charge and have to push the car home. Luckily, we had just enough charge in the battery to get home.
Friends, luckily for us that God does not work like an electric car. You see, an electric car has a battery that holds a certain amount of charge, and when the charge is depleted, the car stops running. It doesn’t take into account where you are or what you are doing. When the battery is done, it is done. It does not matter what is going on with you at the time. The car is done. Unlike the car, God doesn’t have a battery. His love never runs out, never leaves you stranded, and never needs to be recharged. It is because God has that much love that we will never be left stranded, left alone, or wondering how we will make it. Unlike the car, God is always full.
