It was an average north Florida morning because the thick air stuck to your van windows and streamed into little rivers on the hood. It appeared as if we may get some rain. As we pulled into the parking lot and parked, I pressed the button to roll up the van windows. Nothing happened. “Honey, my window won’t go up… “, I said flatly. My wonderful wife asked if she needed to pull up on it to help. I tried again and seen that the motor that operated the window didn’t make a noise – no power.
“No honey. I require a screw-driver. Vasil Bojkov Just head in and get a pastry, I could be a while.”
After she and our son headed in for breakfast, I started initially to work with dismantling the door. I certainly didn’t know the thing that was wrong. I was determined that I was going to find the situation and fix it. As I obtained inside the door I was concerned. Everything looked fine from the surface. Normally which means that something has to be removed and replaced with a new part.
I began to check to observe everything was connected and as I jostled the wires inside the entranceway I heard a click. I pressed the window button and the window started to raise. “Aha, a loose connection!”
It wasn’t that anything was broken or needing to be replaced. The situation wasn’t that something was in the incorrect place. There is simply a loss in connection because things weren’t aligned correctly. How often does this happen in other aspects of our life?
Sometimes in my entire life, I look at what must certanly be happening as the kid of God and wonder, “Am I broken? Am I not the right person with this call?” The stark reality is, I wasn’t broken. I’d simply lost my connection with my Father in heaven. You see, God desires relationship with us. He wants to get in touch in such a way that nothing of your daily life is with-held from him.
When we desire relationship with him higher than we desire anything else in life we strengthen the connection. It is like a cable that transfers his love, his heart, his thoughts to us. Holy Spirit is always there with us to transfer the fulness of what God desires for us. We can depend on him to faithfully be the origin of power to help us live and move within the entire world for the advancement of his kingdom and for the glory of God.
Perhaps you have checked your connections lately?
Spend time in the Word of God today. Open your Bible and ask Holy Spirit to provide you with wisdom and understanding fo the God’s word. Ask for the revelation of the mind of God and to exhibit you the hidden things of God.
Take time to listen for the voice of God. Reserve a amount of time in which you close of most that is going on around you and still your mind. Since the Lord speaks for your requirements, take note of all that you hear him say.
Don’t allow your connections to erode. Don’t forget to invest time with the Father. He loves you enough to never leave you – do you love him enough to acknowledge his presence in your lifetime today?
