(Proverbs 20:12 KJV) The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.
If it doesn’t hear, is it really an ear? If it doesn’t see, is it really an eye? When is a garage door opener just a key fob?
Recently we bought a new remote control for a garage door. I could have sat in the driveway all day pressing the button and nothing would have happened that was not related to blood pressure. It was just a fancy ornament until I programed it. That meant reading the directions so I knew what to do with it. That meant getting up close to the home base, pressing buttons, holding buttons, waiting for lights to work. Only then did it really become a useful remote control.
If you want it to work right, read the directions and get close to the source of power. I recently made a comment to a young clerk about "reading the directions." She said, "That's what they are there for."
Do you want to see the world as it is. To you want to hear the truth. Read the directions and get close to the source of power.
So how is your personal worship time going? You can’t know the truth unless you come in contact with the truth. God is waiting for you to keep your appointment.
