Habakkuk 2:3 – For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day. (AMP)
Sonic the Hedgehog is known as the “fastest thing alive” in the realm of video games. The game designers at Sega crafted this character as a faster, edgier, more hip video game character than our old plumber Mario that we just read about in our previous devotional. This character was all about speed. Quickly jumping from one battle to the next to save the world from the nefarious Dr. Robotnik, later known as Dr. Eggman. Only Sonic’s quick reflexes and stunning speed can counteract the robots and machines that Eggman have set upon the world. Just in case you didn’t know, what makes Eggman so evil is that the robots you destroy contain little woodland creatures.
The funny thing about Sonic is that he feels he has to keep moving. If he’s not moving he does the oddest thing. Sonic looks at you and tap his feet. In various cartoons, voiced by Jaleel White, Sonic would say “I’m Waaaiting.” You know I thought about how you and I can be a bit impatient at times too.
