1 Corinthians 14:18a: I thank God.
May 12 is a day that might as well live in history. We are much more sophisticated now, but it was on this day in 1937 that the first world wide radio broadcast took place. Lest you think this was a USA thing, the reality is that this was an English broadcast of the coronation of King George VI. This means that only 61 years ago today the first world wide radio broadcast took place. How far have we come since then!, Wow.
Communication is a big deal. I know that many times in my life a miss-communication has resulted in heart-hurt, non-understanding or confusion. Everyone experiences the same, and it only emphasizes the fact of how important communication really is. Sometimes, on earth, there exists relationships in which we can do little, it seems, to establish or keep up communication. However, there is a communication that we can establish, without struggle, that can often lead to fixing these earthly communication problems.
I speak of prayer as you might imagine. Prayer is the ultimate communication
between God and ourselves and this communication surpasses all others. I
would like to mention 3 kinds of prayer; secret, family, and public.
God gives grace to us and communication with Him is platinum time spent. Prayer is essential to our walk with God. Communication is essential to every relationship we have here on earth, it is all the more essential to the relationship we have in heaven with our Lord and Saviour.
"I know of no better thermometer to your spiritual temperature than this, the measure of the intensity of your prayer." C. H. Spurgeon
