static

Driving down the road…radio tuned into your favorite station…
Then, suddenly, the radio is picking up bits and pieces of two songs, intermingled with some static!! Ever been there?
The dial (or digital readout) reads correctly with the station you want, but the song isn’t coming in clear.
Frustrating!!  You just want to hear the song!!

hmmm…ever been there with God?
Walking on the path of this life…heart tuned into Him….
Then, suddenly, you are picking up bits and pieces of truth and lies!!  Your heart is saying one thing, and your head is saying another….ahhh!!!!
You long to hear from God, to recognize His voice…yet, as you journey, static invades every part of your being.

Are you there now?  Do you just want to hear from God?  Are there choices that you need to make but don’t have clear direction?  Is God calling you to something else, but the ‘something else’ has illuded you?

Take heart!  God is speaking…God is moving…God is pursuing you.
I don’t have an answer to your specific need, but I do know that God is always on the move, always seeking, always guiding us.  It is so frustrating when all we hear is static, or so we think.

Take a deep breath…breathe in God, breathe out the crud.
Be intentional about spending time with Him…getting to know Him again.  Reconnect.
Admitting this doesn’t mean that you are no longer love Jesus, it just means that you have allowed other things to creep in and steal what you once had with your Savior.  Get away with Him!

Be honest with God.  He is big enough to handle it!

“Please answer me: Don’t give up.  Wait for the Eternal One in expectation, and be strong.  Again, wait…”  – Psalm 27:24 (the Voice)

And while we are waiting, we must wait with hope, with confident expectation that He will do what He he says He will do.
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire,  you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the LORD your God…” – Isaiah 43:1-2 (NLT)

Are you ready to hear Him?
“Go, stand on the mountain at attention before God. God will pass by.”

    A hurricane wind ripped through the mountains and shattered the rocks before God, but God wasn’t to be found in the wind; after the wind an earthquake, but God wasn’t in the earthquake; and after the earthquake fire, but God wasn’t in the fire; and after the fire a gentle and quiet whisper. – 1 Kings 19:11-12 (MSG)

Tune God in…get rid of the static.  He is waiting to talk with you…

grace.
