It's the fourth time my phone has dropped this call. What is up with the connection? I have all my bars! But do they? This isn’t a dead zone normally! Are they in one? My battery is charged, but is theirs?
Isn't it rough and irritating when everything appears to be working right from your end, but things/calls are still being dropped, disconnected? You wonder and ask, dude what service do you have? What's wrong with your phone?
I believe that God is looking down at us sometimes with the same thought. He is speaking, but we mute or press hold on him because we are busy talking to someone else. Purely distracted. We are constantly walking into dead zones (moving too quickly, going places we shouldn’t be, or entangled somewhere in our past) causing our lines of communication to drop Him altogether. How many times have you clicked over to another caller and left Him on hold for hours, days, weeks, must I say years?
Our line of communication with God is open at all times, we can go to Him day or night, it doesn’t matter. But it is us who drops the calls and hook up with whack carriers we put our faith in instead of Him. Now, no I'm not here to beat you up about it. The fix is as simple as clicking back over and saying, God, I'm sorry I want to continue our conversation (relationship). And boom bam it's done. The blood of Jesus really did hook us up!
Today I ask you not to walk into dead zones, press hold, or mute God. Leave the line of communication open so you are prepared for what you will face in the next moment.
1. Remove your distractions
2. Get in the word
No dropped calls. No surprises!
1Corinthians 7:35 “And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, and that you may serve the Lord without distraction.”
Luke 10:38-42 “38Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. 39And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word. 40But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.”41And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. 42But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”
