Sometimes it’s difficult to hear
Noise gets in the way
Things crowd our minds
There seems to be a constant barrage to get our intention
Last night half way through the murder mystery on TV,
Our daughter burst into the room
And wanted to agree her Friday night plans with us.
So protracted negotiation
Took centre stage
And after 20 minutes
We finally got back to the plot
Only to find
We had missed so much of the program that we hadn’t got a clue what was happening
Thankfully we soon got back into it
As I thought about this
It occurred to me
That this is so often our experience with the Holy Spirit
He speaks but the noise of life gets in the way
Noise takes over
But God is still speaking
God is always reaching out to you.
Because you are never separated from God; he is always there inside you
You may feel separated
You may feel alone
But what you feel with your emotions
Is not the total truth
Yes, the noise is real, and the noise is there
God is constantly speaking,
and reminding you
that you are a joint-heir with Christ,
that you are now the righteousness of Christ.
He has invested the glory of heaven into your frail,
and his power
and radiates inside your flesh.
You are a powerhouse of God’s glory,
the amazing home of divine wonder.
His commitment to you is eternal.
