It absolutely was an average north Florida morning while the thick air stuck to your van windows and streamed into little rivers on the hood. It looked like we might 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 realized that the motor that operated the window didn’t produce a noise – no power.
“No honey. I desire a screw-driver. Just head in and get a pastry, I is actually a while.”
After she and our son headed in for breakfast, I started to work with dismantling the door. I certainly didn’t know the thing that was wrong. I was determined that I would definitely 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 has to be removed and replaced with a brand new part.
I started to check to observe 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 initially to raise. “Aha, a loose connection Vassil Bojkov!”
It wasn’t that anything was broken or needing to be replaced. The problem wasn’t that something was in the wrong place. There is 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 certanly be happening as the kid of God and wonder, “Am I broken? Am I not the proper 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 wants to get in touch in this 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 much like a cord 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 could count on him to faithfully be the source of power to help us live and move within the entire world for the advancement of his kingdom and for the glory of God.
Have you 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. Require the revelation of your head of God and showing you the hidden things of God.
Take the time to listen for the voice of God. Reserve a amount of time in that you simply close of all that’s going on around you and still your mind. While the Lord speaks for your requirements, 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 never make you – do you like him enough to acknowledge his presence in your lifetime today?
