It absolutely was an average north Florida morning since the thick air stuck to your van windows and streamed into little rivers on the hood. It appeared to be we might acquire some rain. Even as 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 realized that the motor that operated the window didn’t make a noise – no power.
“No honey. I desire 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 began to work on dismantling the door Vassil Bojkov. I certainly didn’t know what was wrong. I was determined that I would find the situation and fix it. As I acquired inside the entranceway I was concerned. Everything looked fine from the surface. Normally this means that something must be removed and replaced with a new part.
I began to check to observe how everything was connected and as I jostled the wires inside the door I heard a click. I pressed the window button and the window begun to raise. “Aha, a free connection!”
It wasn’t that anything was broken or having to be replaced. The issue wasn’t that something was in the incorrect place. There clearly was simply a lack of connection because things weren’t aligned correctly. How often does this happen in other aspects of our life?
Often times in my life, I look at what must be happening as the little one of God and wonder, “Am I broken? Am I not the proper person for this call?” The 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 wants to be connected in such a way that nothing of your life is with-held from him.
When we desire relationship with him higher than we desire whatever else in life we strengthen the connection. It is like a cord 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 simply help us live and move within the world for the advancement of his kingdom and for the glory of God.
Maybe you have checked your connections lately?
Spend amount of time in the Word of God today. Open your Bible and ask Holy Spirit to give you wisdom and understanding fo the God’s word. Ask for the revelation of your brain of God and to show you the hidden things of God.
Make time to listen for the voice of God. Set aside a time in that you simply close of most that’s going on around you and still your mind. Because the Lord speaks to you, jot down 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 prevent make you – do you adore him enough to acknowledge his presence in your life today?
