Okay, you are driving on the freeway making your way from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas and decide to tune into your favorite radio station. But, for some reason the signal won’t come in clearly down in polygamist territory. (smile) So, you keep fiddling with the dial trying to get a clear signal. You can sort of hear the music, but there is so much static on the line that you eventually give up and pop in a CD instead. You know there is no point in continuing to mess with the tuning knob because there is something blocking the radio waves. Well, God is also on a certain wavelength (called Light) and in order to get any results from our prayers and to get our needs met, we have to be tuned in to the right frequency. However, if something is blocking that frequency, we can pray until we are blue in the face and nothing is going to happen!
Many people view a relationship with God in the wrong light (pun intended). This really isn’t their fault as they cannot go beyond what they have been taught. The fault lies with the so-called ministers who cannot get beyond the subject of sin. Sin, sin, sin, sin…is all they want to talk about. But, God isn’t on that station so people would do better if they turned that radio off forever! If a relationship with God was always about what I do wrong, I wouldn’t want one with Him either! Perhaps we have all been presented with that ridiculous picture of what it means to be a Christian. You know, where we don’t have fun in life anymore. Where we all get together on a Saturday night, hold hands and sing songs, while trying to be real holy and not have any “evil” fun! Shoot me now, right? That narrow, religious view can’t be true, can it? And although there isn’t anything wrong with holding hands and singing songs (smile) I don’t think we give God enough credit for understanding His creation. Ha ha…God knows all about you and still loves you! God already knew that mankind would fall short of “deserving” His love, but because of His great love, decided to love us anyway. The question is never about God’s view of us, but rather our views about Him. So, how can we get on God’s wavelength and tap into His power? Well, first you have to get the transmitter and next you have to get on the right frequency.
The first step in getting on God’s frequency is to get “born-again.” Contrary to public opinion, not everyone is a child of God. (Just like not every child is my off-spring, praise the Lord!) God is only the Father of those He has fathered. God is spirit and in order to be His child you have to get spirit. Okay, now stop right there! Don’t start thinking what you have to do to earn God’s spirit. You are going to lose out if you follow that logic. You are going to miss the frequency you are looking for and end up in polygamist country! Don’t try to figure it out your way, let God show you how easy He made it!
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:9-10 (KJV)
Okay…Wow, that was really easy! Too easy! Surely there’s some good I have to do first? Some proving of myself? Some tests of my sincerity? Some suffering for the Lord? No, no, no, a thousand times no! Wrong frequency… Quit fiddling with the dial and simply accept that someone got you on the wrong channel. So, you believed in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and confessed the savior from sin (instead of confessing all your sins…good luck with that approach!) Now you are God’s child, you’ve got one helluva transmitter; you’re getting closer to accessing God’s power, but there is something else you need to do!
Now you have a permanent (hardwire) connection with God (haha that’s right permanent) but you still have that old mind you had before (wrong station). Dum, dum as I like to refer to him. Dum dum is still on the wrong frequency. Dum dum still wants to do it all himself/herself! So, now your job is to get rid of Dum dum and get your mind to the right frequency where God is… God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. So your job is to bring your thoughts up to the level of God’s Word. This process is called, “renewing your mind.” Until you can get your mind lined up with something true that God promises in His Word, you will have no power with God. (Wrong wavelength, remember?) Now, the old senses world is not going to appear to line up with what God says is true. In fact, the world is going to tell you the exact opposite of the things God promises to His children. God’s Word promises prosperity, the world says poverty; unless you have the right degree, know the right people, pay your dues – blah, blah, blah! God’s Word promises health and wholeness, the world says disease and suffering are just a part of life; there’s nothing you can do, it is what it is! See what I mean? You have to think how God says to think! You have to get rid of all that negativity! You’ve got to get rid of all that doom and gloom. You have got to get rid of that mountain of unbelief and start looking outside of yourself for some answers. Access to God’s power only comes about when you decide to “walk in the light,” only when you decide to believe what God says is true and walk out on it; only when you get yourself tuned-in and on the right channel! Pretty clear, straightforward, simple?
Our being God’s children and Him being our Father is God’s permanent relationship with us. Getting on God’s wavelength is called “fellowship” with God and represents our continued relationship with Him. Our abundant life depends upon staying in fellowship with Him. Access to God’s power comes into manifestation in our lives only after we get our minds on the right frequency.
Don’t spend another moment running from this station to that station! Tune-in to God and His promises and experience God’s power in your life, power that’s always available to you, even in polygamist country!
