It was a typical north Florida morning while 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. Once we pulled into 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 Vasil Bojkov
“No honey. I desire a screw-driver. Just head in and obtain a pastry, I could be a while.”
After she and our son headed set for breakfast, I started to work on dismantling the door. I certainly didn’t know what was wrong. I was determined that I would definitely find the problem and fix it. As I obtained inside the door I was concerned. Everything looked fine from the surface. Normally which means something must be removed and replaced with a brand new part.
I started to test 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 started initially 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 areas of our life?
Quite often in my life, I look at what must be happening as the kid of God and wonder, “Am I broken? Am I not the best person because of this call?” The truth is, I wasn’t broken. I had simply lost my reference to my Father in heaven. You see, God desires relationship with us. He desires to be connected in this way that nothing of your daily life is with-held from him.
Whenever we desire relationship with him higher than we desire other things in life we strengthen the connection. It is like a cord 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 can depend on him to faithfully be the source 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 offer wisdom and understanding fo the God’s word. Request the revelation of your brain of God and to exhibit you the hidden things of God.
Remember to listen for the voice of God. Reserve a amount of time in that you close of most that’s going on around you and still your mind. Whilst 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 spend time with the Father. He loves you enough to never give you – do you love him enough to acknowledge his presence in your life today?
