The above title let’s the older generation know that I must have some point listened to Mull’s Singing Convention as the Mull’s played and sang their music and that of many others on late night 50,000 Watt radio stations. The song was encouraging people to learn to listen for God’s voice. His impressions sent out to all who in tune to God’s broadcast station. If your radio is turned off or tuned to the wrong station, you will miss hearing God’s Still Small Voice.
Failure to hear God Speaking may lead to personal disaster, which can impact many lives. Here’s an account that has faded into history. It cost hundreds of men, women, and children their lives.
Cyril Evans was a radio announcer of sorts, and one night he was broadcasting of danger. Many, with their radio, turned on heard his announcement and avoided tragedy. One man got tired of listening, thinking this is too loud for me. He turned his radio off, went to sleep. As they say, the rest is history.
The man was angry, and he is the one who turned his radio off; the radio officer on His Majesty’s Ship, Titanic!
God speaks in many ways: Through his Word. Through our conscience, guilt, and Grace. He may talk through the example of others. In the highlight days of radio evangelism, many would hear something on the radio about Jesus, and that got them on the road to belief.
Our current spiritual malaise has tuned out God, and we angrily become calloused, our minds and hearts hardened to anything about Jesus, right living and the danger of walking alone in a risk-filled world, foolishly thinking, I don’t need to listen to that religious stuff. Missing “religious stuff” may not be all bad, but when God is dealing with you, it would be good if your inner spiritual radio is plugged in and tuned to God’s trillion Watt station.
Many over the road truck drivers back in the day remember the 50,000 Watt WWVA in Wheeling West Virginia. In the middle of the night Lee More, the Coffee Drinking Night Hawk, would be on the air singing, playing the tunes of others and I was amazed at how many of the Blue Grass and Country songs, would often have more than a hint that God was broadcasting to someone who needed a message from the Lord.
Today’s Question: God is Speaking; Are You Listening?
