Sometimes we need to create SPACE for God to move in our situations. Perhaps that is why the space bar is the biggest one on the keyboard. It reminds me of an old song called A Quiet Place. The last line of the song says; “Then from this quiet place I go to prepare to face a new day with love for all mankind”. I would substitute the word PLACE with SPACE. We need that. DELETE AND
Many times, we want to say things we should not and write / post things we know are offensive to others or to The Holy Spirit. Thank you, Lord, for the Backspace and Delete button. Proverbs 4:23-27 – Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips. Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you.
Don’t you just love the shift key? It is almost like a secret pathway to unlock things that the eye cannot see. Many times in our lives, we need to SHIFT things around to accomplish what God has for us. Just when we think we have figured out the equation and we go to hit the “equals (=)” sign on the keyboard, SHIFT it and you will see that there is going to be MORE. Yes, more by way of a “plus (+)” sign. That shift unlocks the MORE that He has for you.Romans 3:31 (MSG) But by sifting our focus from what we do to that what God does, don’t we cancel out all our careful keeping of the rules and ways God commanded? Not at all. What happens, in fact, is that by putting that entire way of life in its proper place, we confirm it.
When texting, all CAPS come across as yelling, right? So funny how we have that perception of characters. Simple little characters. The Bible reminds us repeatedly to YELL out the name of Jesus. I am reminded of a song by The Cross Movement where they had a line that said; “All you lowercase gods bow down to the capital G to the O to the D who be ruling”. Yes, GOD. We serve the UPPERCASE / CAPS LOCK, GOD!!
Romans 10:13 - For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
FUNCTION KEY [FN]
Through prayer and the Holy Spirit, truth is revealed to man. What does that have to do with FUNCTION? The function of prayer is not just to thank God for the food we ate but to unlock the truths that He has for us. The Holy Spirit will reveal those to us. Your keyboard comes equipped with 12 function keys. Each one has a little icon on it that shows a possible additional function that can be performed. However, YOU must combine the FN (prayer) and the function to benefit from the additional features.Psalm 34:7 - When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.I can go on and on and on but I want to stop here with the ENTER key. As we ENTER into a new year, many of us are in need of entering into a new phase or season in our lives. The Bible tells us in Isaiah Chapter 43 verse 19 "Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.
"Go ahead; Make some space for God to speak to you. Delete those bad things from your life and shift all of your focus and attention to the mighty GOD we serve. Pray, asking God to deliver you from your troubles. The Holy Spirit is the only one who can reveal the “ESCAPE” key to you, PERIOD.
Have a blessed day!
