Where and how does God get a hold of you? For me, it's the YMCA. Usually during my writing time after a quick trip on the elliptical. He uses music and writing. Today He used On Fire by Swtichfoot to remind me of His presence.
I had never heard the song before. (Stuff ends up on my iPod by association.) These are the lyrics that grabbed me initially:
you're on fire when He's near you
you're on fire when He speaks
you're on fire at His mysteries
The "on fire" they are speaking of isn't the usual "on fire for Jesus" phrase. Not that there's anything wrong with that.Neither is it the fire you'd find in a Justin Bieber/Miley Cyrus duet. It's the fire of the God's Holy Spirit messing with you're innermost being. (So glad it's Communion at church tonight so I can go Dance with My Father.)
More lyrics from the song:
When everything inside me looks like everything I hate
You are the hope I have for change, (completely ties in with yesterday's time.)
So, I'll ask you again. Where and how does God get a hold of you? It may not be anything like what I just describe. It doesn't have to be. God know what we need and what will get our attention.
