Are Your Volumes Up?

Published February 27, 2017 by birdieklh

As one of the people at our church who helps with the sound system for various meetings, today I encountered a situation that gave me a spiritual message . . .

There was NO sound! Everything was on. Everything was properly connected. Levels showed up on the sound board, but NO sound was coming out on the monitors or the mains. What a puzzlement!

Finally, after exhausting all avenues that I was aware of, I reached out to our Worship Leader (even though he was at his place of employment) for suggestions.

He had me go back to the amps and check them one more time. Yes, every one was on. Hmmm…. “check the volume levels”, he said. “Oh my goodness!”, I said, “someone had turned them all down to zero!”

As simple as that, the problem was corrected! Amazing. How silly of me not to think of that myself. However, we had all been instructed to leave the volume levels where they were set on the amps and ONLY turn them on or off. Apparently, someone did not remember that tidbit of information when shutting down the system after church yesterday.

That really got me to thinking! We may truly love the Lord. Have completely accepted His finished work on Calvary. We may attend church, read our Bibles and offer up prayers . . . BUT . . . if our volumes are turned down or off, perhaps we don’t HEAR what He is trying to speak into our spirits!

OUCH!!! If we are honest with ourselves, we can recall a time (or more) that we simply missed hearing what God was trying to say to us. It could be an instruction. It could be an encouragement. It could be a reminder of His provision in the past. It could be a prompting as to which direction to take for the next part of our journey that He is leading us on. BUT, if we have allowed the busyness of our day to interrupt the actual delivery of His message; if we have tuned Him out, then we have had our volumes turned to zero!

Something to think about! Make time to check your volume levels today . . . be sure that you ARE taking the time to listen – turn the volume up on your spiritual ears to hear what He is speaking, clearly.

“He who has ears to hear . . . let him listen!” (numerous scripture references)

In these times, especially, we need to be fully alert and attuned to His voice. (See the letters to the churches in Revelation.

Don't ever change yourself to impress someone, cause they should be impressed that you don't change to please others -- When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is, always remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test --- Unknown
