For several years the "Ford" automotive company advertising slogan was "Ford has a better idea!" The phrase was a marketing tool drawing potential buyers to dealer's showrooms. Today as our nations auto dealers have teetered on the brink of economic disaster, they are in desperate need of "a better idea!"
A thought, "an idea" on this subject brings to mind a frustrated remark used by many. "Do you have any IDEA what I am talking about?" Picture a frantic mother trying to explain the dangers of speeding or reckless driving to a teenage son, as he proudly holds his brand new drivers license in his hands! His blank expression reveals that he is clueless to her warnings. He just wants the keys to the car! He has "no idea" what she is trying to get across to him!
A picture often carries an unspoken message; and when we see a picture of a light bulb it represents a brilliant "idea." Now I get it! I have seen the light! Our only true source of seeing that light and getting "the idea" is the God. "Lord, You are my lamp; the Lord illuminates my darkness (2 Samuel 22:29 HCS)." At the moment you need a fresh insight or idea about your work, ministry, family or relationship problem, He'll provide it. I'm sure that "God has a better idea!"
