Michigan’s weather is notorious for being unpredictable and forever changing. During this winter season our roads become very difficult to drive due to the major potholes, craters, deep holes, natures speed bumps.  These road conditions cause major catastrophes for many drivers.


I’m sitting at the tire stop because I happen to drive over multiple pot holes on Mound road that created a major blow out on my vehicle and it is because of this that I’m seeing the multitude of vehicles that come into this lot, all riding in on a spare tires. Keep in mind that every vehicle purchased comes with four good wheels; four solid wheels that are built to print for the overall weight of the vehicle, model, durability, brand, you name it, the vehicle is equipped.

The manufacturer knew that the potential was there for even the best rubber to hit a point of weakness where a spare was going to be needed. In that same vein with life, God being the Chief manufacture of our lives; physical bodies,  of our spirit, of our souls, and of our minds,  He knew that in life there were going to be some potholes. Those potholes are not permanent,  they are temporary.  While it is unpredictable as to when the spare is needed on a tire, God through His son Jesus Christ equips us and  cover us through every unpredictable storm. In these times we are able to call on the blood of Jesus, our strongtower and soar onto a whole new level, over the storms, as the eagle.

Through His Holy Spirit we have the infilling needed to cover any hole in our lives. Hurt, rejection, isolation, pain, loneliness or bitterness, you call out what your pothole is and let God fill it. Just like a spare, we can stand on God’s word when we need it. God is always available and always on time.

Do you have your spare today?  Is your spare full of the word, able to be placed in your daily life?  Just like a car, if your spear is not FILLED, or not functioning right,  it’s not prepared for the unknown bumps in the road. It cannot be used. You’re carrying it around with no function or ability. And it’s same with the word of God.  You have to know it, and believe in it and use it for it to flow out of you.

We all need to be reminded that seasons change. Are you ready to pull out your spare? If not, seek God so you can be prepared for the potholes of life through the infilling of God’s word.
