It’s a recall, answer it!

How often have we heard of someone receiving a manufacturer “recall”… or we ourselves have received one for the vehicle we own? 

At present, it seems as if they’ve become the norm for distribution. Many are acquainted with having received a notification to immediately schedule an appointment for a specific part to be re-evaluated, re-inspected or simply replaced. 

Recently we received a notification to have our passenger airbag replaced, because of a malfunction detected with the make and model of our year. 

After having made the appointment with the Dealer, I was informed that the procedure would take approximately 3 hours for the service to be performed. 

So now, I have the responsibility to plan to be productive with my time while I wait! During this time I’m reminded of how the dashboard indicators had been giving me subtle clues that something was going on, behind the scenes, but I brushed it off and continually went about my way as others have done also. 

The Holy Spirit gives us indicators through warnings, relational conversations, sermonic messages and yet we continually operate in business as usual mode. When we’re forced to take the scheduled appointment, we can clearly hear Him whisper Truth to us such as “you WILL be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God… let a man carefully examine himself… where do these wars come from, they come from things going on within you… allow Me to expose the hidden matter of the heart to you… now remember they that wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength… there’s much safety in a multitude of counselors… If My people {you} who are called by My name, will humble themselves, pray and seek My face, turn from their wicked ways, I WILL hear from heaven and WILL forgive their sins and restore their land {both spiritual and geographical}… He also whispers, that I AM the Lord thy God, I AM faithful and true…and SHALL continually provide for you, and be with you even to the end of the age”! 

We may receive recalls in the natural, but whenever we receive a Recall in the Spirit, we need to answer and Recall that we are sealed in the Father, and it’s always appropriate to thank Him for the fact we have the Spirit of Promise. 

Thank Him for the Future, that in it all things are working together for the good no matter what it looks like! 

Thank Him for power to overcome, the power to love, and the power to forgive. 

As we willingly replace and recall the weights that have affected our wait…we will recall yet once again He has been faithful and true to bring us into the Dealership for the life altering service that we’re in need of to continue to run our race! 

Respond to the Recall and allow the process to take its course, for the newly supplied part tailor made for you!
