*THE BUS STOP DOESN’T MATTER; YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE DRIVER DOES*
A boy stood on a sidewalk waiting for a bus. A man walking by spotted the boy and gave him some gentle advice. “Son,” he said, “if you’re waiting for the bus you need to move to the street corner. That’s where the bus stops for passengers.”
“It’s OK,” said the boy. “I’ll just wait right here and the bus will stop for me.” The man repeated his advice, but the boy never moved. Just then, the bus appeared. Amazingly, the bus pulled over to where the boy stood and he hopped in. The man on the sidewalk stood speechless. The boy turned around in the doorway and said, “Mister, I knew the bus would stop here, because the bus driver is my dad!”
When you’ve got a relationship with the bus driver, you don’t need a bus stop. If you’ve given your heart to the King of Kings, you’re in a royal family of unspeakable proportions.
Today I would like to remind you that when you know the Driver of your life you can take the bus of life anywhere. He will stop and pick you up where people think it is not possible.
Whether you are unemployed, broke, single or married, or childless or divorced, or widowed. What matters is that you know Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above what we can think or even imagine.
However, the BIG question is : “Is the Driver your Father?” “Are you still His child? You can only get that privilege if He is your Father.
- *Enjoy the ride with your Father.*
God knows the best, He does the best, He gives the best because He is the best. May He make you achieve the best in everything you do in life now and forever.
*Stay blessed,* *God loves you*

And Hezekiah received the letter of the hand of the messagers and read it and Hezekiah went up into the house of the Lord and spread it before the Lord. Ane Hezekiah prayed before the Lord and said, O Lord, God of Israel, which dwellest between the Cherubims, thou art God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.
Lord, bow down thine ear and hear, open, Lord, thines eyes and see and hear the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent him to reproach the living God.
Of a truth, Lord the kings of Assyria have destroyed the nations and their lands. And have cast their gods into the fire, for they were no gods, but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, therefore they have destroyed them.
Now therefore, O Lord our God, I beseech thee, save thou us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the Lord God, even thou only.
Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, thus saith the Lord God of Israel, That which thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria I have heard – 2 Kings 19 : 14 – 20.
This was a situation that Hezekiah could not handle, a situation he has to lay all his trust in God, a situation where he sees himself to be powerless no matter what he has been told, a situation where only God can do what no man can do, a situation where he remembered what God has done before and God can still do it again, a situation where he was pushed to the wall, a situation where he has to focus on God and not how great was the problem, a situation where he has to speak for himself to God directly.
Look at what Hezekiah did. When he received the letter instead of him to run to the prophet Isaiah who was at his reach anytime, any moment, he has to take the bull by the horn by going straight to God himself and speak to Him all by himself because who wear his shoes knows where he feels the pain.
What report have you received? What words have been spoken against you? What doctor’s report have you received? Have you gotten a report from the bank that they are taking back your house because you have been unable to pay? Have you gotten a report that your marriage is shaken? Is it about your job? Is it about your studies? What report is it that has been giving you sleepless nights? Is it a report that you have committed the greatest sin that no one else has committed?
Brethren, rise up from your fear and shake off that garment of fear and take it to The Creator Himself so that He can send the wind of freedom to your direction that will make you to be free forever.
No matter how great the problem might be, if you can just take a step of faith and take it to God in prayer, He will surely answer you.
PRAYER : Heavenly and everlasting King, I give You all the glory for Your great mercy upon our lives. Give us the grace to depend on You alone and focus on You and not on our problems so that at the end, Your name will be glorified for ever and ever in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
