Are you a mechanical person? I am not. I used to have a t-shirt that read “I am mechanically inclined to screw up everything.” I just don’t have the time or the patience to put things together. Thankfully, my husband and son are both wired that way and when we get something that has “some assembly required” they are both eager and willing to do it.
Our television has been on the blink for a while. This weekend, we knew we had to do something when the picture would go to a flat line and you had to get up and smack the side of the television to correct the picture. My husband and son took off to Best Buy to see what they could find while my daughter and I went to a Christmas ballet. When we returned, they had cables everywhere trying to hook the new television up to the DVD player, the cable, and the surround sound. There were several plugs and several places each plug could have gone. They had to keep referring to the manual to see how to connect everything. It took a few times before they got it everything working properly but once they did, it was fabulous. The picture was crystal clear and the sound was amazing.
Do you ever feel like your wires are crossed and things in your life aren’t working properly? Do you feel like you need a smack in the head to get it right? Fortunately, we have a manual for life the Lord has given us; it is the Bible [Psalm 119:105]. When we get our wires crossed, we can refer to the Word to reconnect our wires or stay connected the way we were designed so things flow as they were intended [2 Timothy 3:16]. Unlike the television, we tend to get our wires crossed on a regular basis. We can avoid this problem by referring to the Word daily and doing what it says.
Is there a problem in your wiring? Do you feel like you aren’t seeing a clear picture in life? Maybe there is a cable in the wrong place. The only way to find out is to refer to the Manual. The Manufacturer is also ready and available to assist you with your troubles. He never has a busy signal and He won’t put you on hold. What are you waiting for?
