Morning Thought: A chariot without strong and balanced wheels won’t be effective in battle. In the same way, you will only overcome as the hub and spokes of your life are solid. Your hub is your relationship with God. The spokes are God-given relationships, people who strengthen and pray for you. Value the people that the Father has placed in your life. Stay connected so that your spokes are strong, enabling you to move with God. Paul was a strong and balanced “spokesperson” for Jesus. He writes: “Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you” (Philippians 4:9, NIV).
