The other day I was in the car listening to the radio and I was listening to Christian FM 95.3. It was one of my favorite songs. And as I was stopped at an intersection the song began to compete with static. The words became inconsistently inaudible. I didn’t want to change the station hoping it would come back clear or at least to the point of hearing the lyrics. Even when I couldn’t hear the lyrics I knew they were still there...just drowned out. Even when I couldn’t hear anything I didn’t want to change it with hopeful anticipation and faith that I eventually would hear the lyrics and the static would go away.
Often times it’s the same way with God...it’s easy to enjoy and feel comfortable in faith when God’s work, presence and voice are completely clear and audible...but the world will do all it can to interfere between that connection. It will cause as much static as it can at the attempt of making you unable to experience or hear God. But God has planted it in your heart, even when the static completely frowns out His voice, to stay focused on Him. Don’t change the station. Just because you may not be able to hear Him at that moment doesn’t mean He is not there and is not working. Rest in joyful hope and faith knowing and believing clarity will come and very soon you will hear His voice.
Don’t change the station. God is always in your midst and working for your good...even when the static seems to be drowning Him out...God cannot be diluted or hushed.
