We all know of times in our lives when we just say to God, "I'm going to take control of this situation. I know what's best for my life." So in turn God allows us the free will and says "OK... the wheel is yours." And just like when we are young thinking we know best but we injure ourselves or someone else our instinct says, "Dad I messed up will you help me?" God answers that call, telling us that He will take care of it. The lesson will be hard and the answer may not be right away in our minds but The Father does have everything under control and will never forsake His children.

Sit back and enjoy it, share it, most of all, thank you for listening and choosing The Truth Podcast Network. This is the Truth Network and maintain the law of marriage, one here that people are parsing Dan has been driven only to church on Sunday and one year is all thing like in some very wheeled prayers today on the Christian card I show yes to damages incurred as showing a bill Mixon and steering wheel prayer.
So in our intro today, which actually I think on record as my longest intro ever. But in order to get said what I wanted it said it just took that it made me cry so I was very happy with. So what you heard. Actually, there was Andy Griffith shows episode, Bernie's first car. If you ever saw that episode gets a little part coming out of the steering column that was kind of what led me to that episode because it was all about the steering wheel. When you think about Barney didn't naturally say a prayer before we went looking for a new car is first car and then of course you for Caleb Lee Hutchins Hutchinson's amazing song.
He was the 16th season of American Idol's runner-up, but that song steering will prayers for him to hear some more that throughout the show today, but as you think about the image with me. Just think for a second about the imagery of the steering wheel right so as I was praying literally Prema the body of Christ. I asked God in my own steering will prayer were going to show today actually very early this morning.
I asked him what car part mirrored the neck of the body of Christ and immediately I mean immediately. He showed me a steering wheel and so today show you my guest and Bill Artie did is brought to you by the Hebrew letters that he which is as he found out it does, look like extreme wellness on right so it looks like a Y but anyway this Saturday is the first letter in the word neck as it should be because it is the righteous letter because the neck has to be held upright right.
But if you think about God trying to steer the Israelites in the desert how to describe them stiff neck, right and so that grease on the steering will you know it all has to do so like Barney, I often take off on my own steering of the car. I bet you do too.
And God has allowed me often to run into the ditch in the process as Barney did buying that first car. So as God told me once in a very critical moment in my life when you could run your car into the ditch. That's precisely the time to call dad Mike it be good if you called them before you ran it into the ditch. But if you're in the ditch.
There's no better time to call dad. So I was doing an interviewer that comes from as I was doing an interviewer I think this was in 2009 on a very liberal radio station in Chicago and having to be the day that Rick Wagoner had been fired at General Motors and I was told by the people that set up the interview that this post may eat me for lunch because this was a very liberal radio station.
They were gonna take timely to my name is the Christian card got and so as somewhat predicted the way the conversation took off that day was the host said to me, so you're the Christian car guy, so I suppose you guys only work on Christians cars and of course at that moment in time. You can imagine it will you say that and I threw up a steering wheel prayer I dislike God, give me something I have no idea what to say and what he I opened my mouth and it came out and I still can't believe I said it because it was no way was responding to what she had said, but it was exactly here is what I said. I said my favorite call that I ever got from my son in the entire history of all my children was a few days after he got his drivers license. He drove his car off into the ditch in the first person he called was me and you know what the American auto manufacturers have run their car into the ditch and it's time to call dad to which she responded and I'll never forget this as well.
She says amen. Preacher Britt C said preach it brother and and from that and that moment you know that those words I don't know what they had to do with whatever event she ran into a ditch and had to call her. They had with all I know is it was a great steering will prayer and in a God came through because I have. I still can't even believe those words came out of my mouth. You know, Bill, because I wasn't usually I answer questions or somebody asked me a question while he never known you to be speechless and I was an inherent case if came right out of my mouth. I'll never forget it. So on today's show. I'm wondering if you've had such a steering wheel prayer like you you you were in a situation where like all man I better pray and and and God came through and just blow your mind.
Just as the song said I love love love that that song the humility of what he is saying, you know, is an outline, a lot of us are running on fumes and and we need Scott Mead got it collectively says that if I make it today. I know you did it right. If I make it through today. I know you did it. 866-34-TRUTH 87884.
866-34-TRUTH is a number to call in and share your steering will prayer I would love love love to hear it.
I would love to hear your story, 866-348-7884 is the number to call in Seville when you think will II had gotten into the Gideons and I joined the church and was doing the local Christian missions type things and the gentleman over the church at River Oaks knew that I was doing some stuff in jail and prison ministry and asked me if I'd like to help, but I said that would be wonderful and then not long after that, he says want to go on a hike in the Appalachian trail with my son. Would you like to take over local missions for the entire church and my Adam's apple went up and down, and I pray and I said okay will while you are in your your trip will I was trying to expand the jail and prison ministry for the church in the Gideons I came out of the DeSales one day and there was this nice lady who was just all distraught and I prayed with her and talk to her and she wanted a ride somewhere and I was thinking this is not the smartest thing you ever did add gutter in the car. The story changed and it changed it changed its change at long short. They are, I knew that I didn't want to be in that situation again. Plus I knew had a help men out of difficult situation but yeah a young mother with a child is a tightly difference and I prayed and I prayed and I prayed and the next day I went into the was a member the wide WCA date they smell a lot better did I member the W for a long time and when I went in there was this great big sign that said that Holly house is going to have a guest speaker at the YWCA on church missions with women and I said yeah if there was a plug-in. If God wasn't speaking to me that morning and I went in and set down and admit the most wonderful lady called Kristen O'Leary and after she talked and shared about what Holly house that I said you know I need some help when I've got a lady that needs assistance. I need somebody that I can send her to Chris and his prison and stepped up. Kristen's been a delight initiative.
Kristen has just made the biggest difference in our community, but it was one of those cases were God answer to prayer the very next day, in a way that there was absolutely no today I am fruit of all kinds disperses them a lot so 866-34-TRUTH 8788 force member to call in and share your steering wheel prayer 866-34-TRUTH when we come back hopefully will have your story you're listening to the Truth Network and TruthNetwork.com is saying is being on the Christian Car Guy.
How fun is that and I couldn't be more excited. Some calls lined up about these there will prayer stories, 866348788 force member calling insurer years. We got Ron in Texas so Ron, you're on the Christian Car Guy show good morning Ron how are you listening in Texas.
I'm interested to allow wonderment. That's wonderful. Thank you thank you thank you so tell your your your steering wheel prayer.
Well I didn't have time to pray. We were downhill in Sheridan, Wyoming we get an 18 wheeler where going to stop for the night. Sheridan headed westbound and elk King softer side of the road on the right and it just got we I swerved to the left really hard. You don't do that now know the LK yeah else get the front windshield right in front of my life. It spun around it damaged every panel on the minivan that we are driving all the way back and and kept it going straight and the next thing I know my wife says you're on the left shoulder with the car back and wrote an successfully the 18 wheeler, Mr. Dickey came screaming after and we successfully got to the side of the road.
The sliding door was damaged enough that the contact court made in life with Don and Phyllis trying to figure out how to all fuses when pickup truck came behind me stopped to check to make sure we're okay and that he had pulled built off the road, but God took the wheel. We didn't do that. That's not to praise him that were still alive.
Wow, how long ago was that Ron probably 1980 okay unit since one of those. You'll never forget. And I I did a deer. I can imagine hitting and elk like oh yeah good nice and yet 75 and you know, on the other side, yeah, when I think about that maneuver and how quick all that must've happened, like in the wink of an eye in oak and and and it almost seems like the elk kept the car straight. Yes sir I agree with that and we had headlights on, and he stepped in inside the headlight how close he was when he stepped out of the road's, goodness, and what an amazing Ron, thank you and I thank you for listening to Casey.
I have one wonderful station up there in Seattle and is ungrateful for them for turning the show and for you, listening, and then thank you so much for your call. It really makes my day.
I won't ever forget your story. Thank you. Now the question please see if it's actually on the lawn more. They claim that the 5 quarts of oil in the upstairs lawnmower to last for two year oil to the point far enough that they'll last that long without being changed well and I'm assuming they're not meta-synthetic oil.
Synthetic oils may last that long without being changed, but regular conventional monorail oil is the same stuff we've used for a lot of years. They have some different additives. Maybe today than what they used to have but I'm with you because especially in a lawnmower because you know that the deal lawnmowers is that they run in the dust. A lot especially if you're in Texas right night and so you know it all that dust coming in the greatest air filter in the world doesn't keep it all from getting into the combustion chamber which goes right out in the oil and so I'm with you, my friend, I would. I would most lawnmowers you want to change that oil once a season, at least so okay but but I remember never limerick about your little worried about water getting into oil anymore. Of course now that's horrible thing that I wanted and I will just absolutely destroy it. However, let me permit me give myself a precursor can never let it be said the Christian card.
I said anything that was against what the manual sense with manual says on the no circumstances change the will no change on but if it if it says you know some recommended thing. I certainly I would consider changing it sooner myself, but that's me once every two years, but it it's 5 quart I can imagine an engine eating that much either wall relatively small lawnmower and well. It is interesting and in a course with more oil and obviously last longer so you know I don't know why it would last longer because oil you know is is running on a what breaks it down is both stuff that gets in the oil you know on foreign objects of all sorts of different kinds. Both men lost the insides of the engine and dirt and so the more volume. There is the last amount of that stuff is in the oil just naturally and and so tomorrow you have the more your spread around all the stuff that's in it, but also it breaks down because of heat and so by spreading it through 5 quarts.
It doesn't get as hot a foaming gift or light but very cool. Great stuff Ron, thank you for calling my friend got bless you. Thank you Joe I enjoy. Thank you so much. All right, we got our good good friends there. Linda calling also from K CIS this morning. Sincerely in the early well we lost her Linda, but I'm sure she'll call back at 866-348-7884. You have a question or comment, or you have his turn will prayer we would love to hear from you. 866-34-TRUTH 87884 the Christian card I show the Jesus labor love car repair labor for single moms widows and families in crisis. All it Christian car guy.com you're listening to the Truth Network and TruthNetwork.com demonstrate anything like this and sounds of bottomless know you say please let out so is he lit the same co-go to the latest design and the and steering wheel prayers today on the Christian car guys show. We would love to hear yours. It 866-34-TRUTH 87884 when you threw up that prayer in office.
It looks like that elk was coming at your whatever your situation may have been in a spiritually, physically, whatever was going on.
We would love to hear the story you concurred so many were just sharing 866-34-TRUTH 87884 and is my guest. I've been studying the song of Solomon and those who know me well know I have a podcast to do every day and we been in the fourth chapter of the song of Solomon, which is an amazing chapter as this is where the idea of steering wheel prayers came from.
As we have here a phenomenal description of the bride of Christ.
In other words, in the fourth chapter. Jesus himself is now going to describe his bride and he describes her seven attributes, which by the way, would mirror the seven anointing is that he received in Isaiah 11.
Those are the spirit of wisdom and the spirit of understanding in the spirit of counsel in the spirit of might, knowledge, and fear the Lord go that far today because the neck has to do with that anointing the fear the Lord and so is he goes on to describe these, which by the way, I have all those in my podcast if you want to listen. It's a Christian car guy.com describing the eyes, which are the wisdom and the hair, which is the understanding and the teeth which have to do with counsel. If you think about showing on the word of God the lips that are the red scarlet that have to do with the promise and live in the sweet might of the of the gospel itself, which is what comes out of your lips and then after that are the cheeks of pomegranates which have 613 seeds which has to do with knowledge of and if you ever heard that perhaps the fruit that was eaten there in the garden was actually pomegranate because it was it is always been concerned considered since antiquity, the fruit of knowledge.
And so we line up now to the sixth anointing, which really had me puzzled because I know is that it is the fear of the Lord. But what is that have to do with the next, read that first you in order to talk about it a minute. It says my neck is like a tower of David built for an armory where on their hang a thousand bucklers. All shields of mighty men. So as you look at that in Hebrew as you might imagine, I did and studied it from a lot of different aspects really cool the tower of David is where the hell the Sanhedrin that would be the 70 people that ran the church so to speak of Israel in the time of Solomon and so than the tower itself held up the neck coming ahead if you think about it and so this tower was where they would protect right if you, in those days was yet a tower. It was there for protection.
It is billed as an armory where in there hung a thousand what is called bucklers, but that word that is actually translated bucklers might well have been translated and Rashi the old Jewish commentary said it's this way and I think I can make a case for definitely being this way that would actually hung there were a thousand quivers.
And when you put that into context. You go okay if you were to defend a tower if you see an old ancient movies they they rained arrows from the towers right and so there were always quivers along the top that towers of the art have access to thousands of arrows to protect the tower right now Jesus is describing the body of Christ, never interesting. The hundred and 27 Psalm was written to Solomon buys that and that's all.
You might recall at the end, it makes reference to arrows and those arrows are what the children I interestingly, Solomon, and that many children were in the Bible. There's only having three list in spite of all those lives. It's very interesting. Even I will children be a lot of spiritual children. I'm one of okay and in those spiritual children are like arrows.
Okay, the great commission Jesus said right, go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations people that love the word of God. The people that love God people that those are the arrows that go out from the neck right that protect the head to keep it up right right as is. We are engaged in the great commission right then we are helping these arrows of light go out in order to rain down on me and on on any evil that would attack the church also very cool. There are also a thousand shields because they said bucklers and shields okay and the shield is clearly in the other word for Hebrew that is describe the shield is in fact shield and that is the shield of faith that Paul would describe but in antiquity if you if you studied warfare those days the shield was not for you. The shield was there to protect the person to your left in in in battle, and the idea of that is your faith helps protect those people around you.
I'm sure you've experienced that. And so even in this steering will prayer that were talking about today as we throw up that prayers of the week and had an older heads up right our faith right that prayer that Ron described as he was about at the elk or whatever. He said he didn't pray.
But their faith. Whatever God shows up and and what it protected him and his wife and oh by the way, that if that was 1980 he might had children. After that, and grandchildren and think of all the people that your faith shields is just spectacular to think that this body of Christ. God is going to describe for us here that Jesus himself is to say, this is this is how beautiful this is.
Is that on this neck right. Hang a thousand quivers and a thousand shields of what mighty men, and you think of the faith we stand on the shoulders of Spurgeon and and Rashi in Matthew Henry and and and and take your pick of your favorite whoever that is used in on your shoulders maybe was your dad. Or maybe it's your pastor.
We don't we are standing on the shields of the faith of those who came before us who understood that God is doing this right and that's what holds our neck right medical bill always learn so much. Come in and share with you, and you never thought about your neck being anyway so I didn't at Christian car guy.com. If you look in bill was perplexed by this, he had be a little bit confused. I had a big picture dolly to have that song if you like that steering will prayer sorry and I'm not a big country music lover, but I love that song, and underneath that song, which are posted right there. I posted a picture of the neck muscles when not surprisingly, because Solomon understood anatomy tremendously.
If you look at that major muscle on the side of your neck.
You can even go feel it if you want.
Guess what it looks like it looks like a quiver it just us. If you look, I'm telling. I've thought about it. I've I've studied. I've looked at it and I went you know this is just not a coincidence. Here I mean that when Jesus looks at the neck of the body of Christ. He's excited about those arrows right he's excited about everybody that you disciple and every single one of those arrows of light go out and get a share that man we we've got somebody we can talk to when the car goes in the ditch and so we need your story right.
We need Serling to call back, and I don't want to miss or call 866-348-7884 is a number to call in and share 866-34-TRUTH and I gotta tell you, talking, most will prayer as we continue to pray with the Jesus labor lover.
