The Master Conductor
Oh, My child, I see you running to and fro, frantic in your efforts to help Me make things happen. How many times will you go around that mountain of unbelief? Yes, unbelief! That may surprise you, but it’s true. You have a part to play in the symphony of life, but when you try to play all the instruments, rather than your own, well, the sound is loudly off tune and unpleasant.
I am the Master Conductor and I strategically place people and events in their own seats in the orchestra of your life. Your zeal and passion are commendable, but when they consume you, your sound becomes off key and affects the composition of the soundtracks of your life.
I am your first love. I should be your waking thought when you rise and the final applause as you drift off to sleep. I will not be replaced by anything in your life. Hear Me, child. Repent and get back into your seat so I can play you loud and strong. Your repentant heart and obedience is what I desire above all.
Come, let Me fine tune you once more so you can continue to run your race in perfect harmony with the hand-picked orchestra I have for you. May you overflow with hope so you can soar to higher heights as My grace falls like rain and soaks your spirit with faith.
The show will go on,
Your loving Father
4 Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. 5 Consider how far you have fallen!
Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.”
Revelation 2:4-5 NIV
22 But Samuel replied:
“Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices
as much as in obeying the Lord?
To obey is better than sacrifice,
and to heed is better than the fat of rams.”
1 Samuel 15:22 NIV
We wait in hope for the Lord;
he is our help and our shield.
21 In him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in his holy name.
22 May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
even as we put our hope in you.
Psalm 33:20-22 NIV
Pause and Ponder
God is your music and He writes the soundtracks of your life. Let go and let God, for when you live in obedience, you position yourself for blessings. A simple shift of focus can turn an otherwise gloomy day into one full of radiant hope and promise.
From My Heart to Yours
Lord, I want you to write the beautiful soundtrack to my life. Today, I will quiet my soul and listen for the first note of Your musical masterpiece.
