It absolutely was an average north Florida morning because the thick air stuck to your van windows and streamed into little rivers on the hood. It looked like we may get some good rain. Once we pulled to the parking lot and parked, I pressed the button to retract the van windows. Nothing happened. “Honey, my window won’t go up… “, I said flatly. My wonderful wife asked if she needed seriously to pull up on it to help. I tried again and seen that the motor that operated the window didn’t create a noise – no power.
“No honey. I require a screw-driver. 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 Vassil Bojkov. I certainly didn’t know the thing that was wrong. I was determined that I was going to find the problem and fix it. As I got inside the doorway I was concerned. Everything looked fine from the surface. Normally which means that something must be removed and replaced with a new part.
I began to check on to see how everything was connected and as I jostled the wires inside the doorway I heard a click. I pressed the window button and the window started to raise. “Aha, a free connection!”
It wasn’t that anything was broken or having to be replaced. The problem wasn’t that something was in the incorrect place. There was simply a loss of connection because things weren’t aligned correctly. How often does this happen in other regions of our life?
Sometimes in my life, I look at what should really be happening as the little one of God and wonder, “Am I broken? Am I not the proper person with this call?” The stark reality is, I wasn’t broken. I had simply lost my experience of my Father in heaven. You see, God desires relationship with us. He really wants to get in touch in this way that nothing of your daily life is with-held from him.
Once we desire relationship with him greater than we desire other things in life we strengthen the connection. It is much like a wire that transfers his love, his heart, his thoughts to us. Holy Spirit is obviously there with us to transfer the fulness of what God desires for us. We are able to depend on him to faithfully be the origin of power to greatly help us live and move within the planet for the advancement of his kingdom and for the glory of God.
Maybe you have checked your connections lately?
Spend time in the Word of God today. Open your Bible and ask Holy Spirit to offer wisdom and understanding fo the God’s word. Look for the revelation of your brain of God and to show you the hidden things of God.
Take time to listen for the voice of God. Set aside a time in which you close of that is going on around you and still your mind. As the Lord speaks for you, 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 make you – do you love him enough to acknowledge his presence in your life today?
