It had been a typical north Florida morning because the thick air stuck to our van windows and streamed into little rivers on the hood. It appeared to be we might get some good rain. 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 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 Vasil Bojkov.
“No honey. I desire a screw-driver. Just head in and obtain a pastry, I is actually a while.”
After she and our son headed in for breakfast, I began to work on dismantling the door. I certainly didn’t know that which was wrong. I was determined that I was going to find the issue and fix it. As I got inside the entranceway I was concerned. Everything looked fine from the surface. Normally which means that something has to be removed and replaced with a brand new part.
I started 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 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 clearly was simply a loss of connection because things weren’t aligned correctly. How often does this happen in other aspects of our life?
Often times in my entire life, I look at what should be happening as the child of God and wonder, “Am I broken? Am I not the right person for this call?” The truth is, I wasn’t broken. I’d simply lost my reference to my Father in heaven. You see, God desires relationship with us. He really wants to link in such a way that nothing of your lifetime is with-held from him.
When we desire relationship with him more than we desire whatever else in life we strengthen the connection. It is similar to a wire that transfers his love, his heart, his thoughts to us. Holy Spirit is obviously there around 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 planet 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 offer wisdom and understanding fo the God’s word. Look for the revelation of your head of God and showing you the hidden things of God.
Take time to listen for the voice of God. Set aside a time in that you close of all that’s going on around you and still your mind. As the Lord speaks for you, jot down all that you hear him say.
Don’t allow your connections to erode. Don’t forget to spend time with the Father. He loves you enough to prevent leave you – do you like him enough to acknowledge his presence in your lifetime today?
