WiFi from Heaven

We are trying to get back into some sort of regular routine, but I wonder, how do you get into a routine when three days in succession you are at a variety of doctor’s appointments? Maybe next week!

The cold weather returned at the end of the week, but it brought some moisture with it, so we are thankful.

I don’t know how many of you would remember the old song “Turn Your Radio On.” Here are a few lines:
“Everybody has a radio receiver
All you got to do is listen for the call
Turn your radio on, turn your radio on
If you listen in you will be a believer
Leanin’ on the truths that’ll never fall
Get in touch with God, turn the radio on….
Turn your radio on and glory share
Turn your lights down low
And listen to the Master’s radio
Get in touch with God, turn your radio on.”

I saw the following post on Facebook this morning, and was suddenly taken with the thought that we’ve come quite a distance from “Turn Your Radio On.”

With a little editing, here is what I read: “Prayer is like WiFi. It’s invisible, but it has the power to connect to the One you need.”

I know about WiFi. I’m too frugal to pay for a data package for my cell phone, so I search out places with free WiFi, so I can check email and stay in touch with my Facebook friends.

Why do I think prayer might be like WiFi? Because we can communicate with Someone who is unseen, through an unseen power. It is in Jesus’ instructions concerning prayer: “When you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you” (Matthew 6:6).

Prayer is not the same as WiFi, in that it is always available. There is no need to find a hotspot. You are always connected, anytime, anywhere… even in a whale. From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the Lord his God. He said: “In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me… when my life was ebbing away I remembered you, Lord, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple” (Jonah 2:2….7).

Continually connected,
Pastor Jerry
