On The Fast Track

There's a roller coaster ride at one of our favorite amusement parks, Hersheypark, that is advertised like this:

This one-of-a-kind coaster will launch you from 0-72 mph in 2 seconds flat. 18 stories straight up, straight down. And that's just the beginning. You'll fly through a 135 foot cobra loop, barrel rolls, and a dramatic flying snake dive. The first hydraulic launch coaster to feature inversion.


It's fast and it's furious. No slow climb up with an anticipated drop. No easing into it. It's sit down, buckle up, and away you go as the wind hits your face and the force pulls you back.

God can take us on similar "coasters" in our Christian walk with Him. He may take us into a season of our lives where we feel like we are suddenly thrust from 0 to 72mph in 2 seconds. We especially feel it if we are coming out of a season of winter where things have been quiet and at rest under His "snow".

But we don't have to be alarmed when this happens. He will never put us on a 'coaster' we have not been prepared for, and one that He won't personally accompany us on. He will be our buckle that straps us in, and the force that drives us forward. Grace and Power work brilliantly together in an accelerated season as He redeems the time!
