There was an amazing breakthrough about 10 years ago in automotive technology. Generically, it’s called traction control. A computer onboard your car measures the amount of grip or traction of each wheel over a thousand times a second, and then applies more or less power to that particular wheel to make sure the car moves forward under control…in the desired direction. Amazing! It’s automatic…nothing we have to do to get this power. Our only responsibility… steer in the correct direction. I believe this is the same way God blesses us with His power; the more challenging your day, the more of His power he places at your disposal, without us even asking…it’s automatic. But, you need to steer towards God, the power is wasted if you don’t steer in His direction. Don’t fall prey to the false roads, the detours, the counterfeit destinations Satan and your old self want you to find. You control the steering wheel, God will do the rest. As you are challenged, so shall you be strengthened. Amazing!
Today, know that a simple glance and fllowing of your Lord, made in faith, is enough to connect you to the ultimate source of power and traction control. When you struggle, and you don’t sense His power, check your steering. Click here to share with the Stepping Stones community your thoughts getting God’s power or your steering.

Dear Father God, I look to You, Father, with faith and thankfulness. Today my strength seems so insufficient for the demands I am facing. I look to You, Lord, for the strength sufficient to handle the challenges of this day. Thank You Lord. All glory be to You! I also ask for wisdom as I steer. Give me courage and patience to see and follow Your direction and avoid the traps set for me. In the name of the one who’s death gives me power over death, Christ Jesus; and all God’s children said – AMEN!
Your sandals shall be iron and bronze; As your days, so shall your strength be.
Seek the LORD and His strength; seek His face evermore!
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:9,10
