Food For Thought….What do You Set Your Standard To?

There is a music artist that I’ve heard recently who has lyrics that makes you stop. Some singers rely on a catchy beat but this artist made me literally just sit there and contemplate the words she was singing. Lauren Diagle. Her song “Trust in you” has a chorus that says “when you don’t move the mountains in needing you to move. When you don’t part the water I wish I could walk through. When you don’t give the answers as I cry out to you. I will trust. I will trust. I will trust in you.” This song made me really think. I’m sure you have a few petitions before the Lord too. Often times we wonder “when and how” things will take place.

We are human and I’m really not sure if this side of glory the desire to know will ever go away but we don’t have to be a slave to it. David Jeremiah was teaching last night about the church in the book of acts. He was saying how they were unified. This unification did not mean uniformity. One other notation I thought was interesting is that they didn’t become unified by seeking to be like that others.

When you tune a piano you don’t tune it to another piano you tune it to a chord. A set standard. Then all pianos are naturally in tune with each other because they have been tuned to the same standard. His point, the early church, when they were seeking the fire and even after, had a desire that caused them to seek hard after God and the results are a church of action as seen in acts. A church that was unified. I began to wonder if this is part of our issue today. We seek unity with each other and try to conform ourselves to our surroundings. What if we patterned ourselves after the early church? Many of the things we get frustrated over would cease as the unity of the Spirit takes over. But here is where we trust. Have you too a request before God that hasn’t been answered? A question? Desire of your heart? Take this time to trust. Seek the unity of your soul to Him.

Acts 1:14 “These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.”
