You are in a hurry, seems you are always in a hurry. The gas gauge empty light just came on and you are "broke, busted and disgusted." It is the start of a stressful work-week and you overslept, leaving no time to brew java, guess this will just be a manic Monday. You spy a clear lane to your bank ATM machine, maneuver through four-lane traffic and lower the window beneath the automated teller. You will soon finger "fast cash" and see it slip through your fingers for the family gas-guzzler Suburban.
I wonder how many of us recognize access to "fast grace?" I frequently find myself running on empty as I rush about and try to find instant relief. Four-lane traffic does not get in my way to God, my source of help. I need not roll down a window, merely open my heart for a free re-fill. "Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16 NAS)." Have you ever experienced the frustration of an ATM that was out of service? I have, and can confidently say God is always reliable when I need Him!
